Here is my experience... I have a Taurus PT 92 FS. I have had it for years and shoot the crap out of it. I can hit 4" gongs @ 30yards with factory ammo. It has -NEVER- jammed or stove-piped. Even with that crap-tastical wolf junk. When Barretta had its 25yr. anniversary /w the military, I even went out and did a stare and compare with a Barretta 92FS/M9. I shot them side by side. I was more accurate with the Taurus up to 15 yards, and better with the Barretta at 25. The Tarus PT92FS is a mostly direct copy of the Barretta 92FS/M9. The primary exception is the frame vs. slide saftey. The testing the military did for this was insane. They had to buck the 1911 lovers out there. I love 1911's too, but the M9 was proven in rigorous testing before its adoption. All that said, and perhaps I got the only jewel of Taurus out there. However, I doubt it. The whole reason I got the gun, was that my dad had one and I did well with it. My dad's gun definitively hasn't had as many rounds through it, but I have never heard him mention a malfunction. Is every other model of Taurus crap and this is the only winner for them? What are you thoughts?
