Kind of speaks to their ethics and integrity doesn't it?
Yeah, it does. And ya know, it really sucks too. They have excellent prices on their wares, but they do pull crap like that, especially with the Tauri G2. Those G2's sell like hotcakes around here, and their just cashing in on that crap. If I ever buy another G2, I will go elsewhere, even if I pay 30 to 40 dollars more for the gun.

I picked up one of these for my wife last year. Seems like a nice gun. She wasn't overly fond of the long trigger pull of the DAO SCCY, but she did like the size. The G2 is a good mix.

I have two g2s, love them. I agree with others that it's a bit too big for pocket carry unless your shirt tail is left out. As for service, my cousin sent hers back to lighten the trigger and it was back in 2/12 weeks.

I was messing with one today, really liked it. The reset for a striker pistol is awesome. And the double strike capability has made it the backup or carry pistol for a couple of Troopers I know. Very impressed overall. Might be the reason I sell my Shield. :)

Recommend you carry it for 3 straight days and see if you find it comfortable before you sell any of your guns

Its a great pistol to shoot but I have a really hard time finding a position to carry it where I can tolerate it for more than 8 straight hours

Just trading my Shield, not the rest of them. :) it's got the thumb safety and not too hip on a non ambi safety even though it's doubtful it will ever be knocked on by accident. And I want a NTS Shield 45. :)

I carry an Offficer's 1911 most days. Doubt the PT111 G2 will bother me. But I understand your concern and you are completely right and giving good advice! Most new carriers pick a weapon that they want, but won't carry.

I bought one for my wife to CCW. We have both been very impressed with the G2. Good capacity, good size for CCW in most cases and a life time warranty. Just about the same size as my Glock 26.

Talking with an armorer on another forum, he bought one years ago and one in the last year or so. He broke them down all the way and reported that the newer versions are machined a lot more precise than the original versions. He could see an increased level of quality. This coincides with a change in management from what I researched. They wanted to make the G2 sorta a flagship for Taurus and instead of dumping $ into advertising they simply lowered the price to flood the market and let folks chat the gun up. I would say the word of mouth route has been a good choice. IIRC the G2 was the #1 selling gun for a couple of years.
