I broke down and finally bought a taurus... My cousin and I were at a local gun show when I saw one for $254, new with 2 16rd mags and a 100rd box of ammo. I had held one briefly a few months ago but passed it over. Have never been a fan of their guns but it was a new model that felt good in hand and had a pretty decent trigger. Also worth noting that it comes threaded for an included adapter to mount a suppressor.

I like that it breaks down like any other poly defense pistol and it seems to run well - I've only got about 100rds of 2 different brands of ammo (40grn Remington Range and some Aguila) but it doesn't seem picky so far? 1 malfunction but that was a round sitting wonky in the magazine. On that note, you have to be slightly careful to make sure the rounds are all tip up when you let go of the follower. Somehow they can nose down and lock that way?

Overall a fun little shooter shooter so far and fairly accurate to boot.

Cool! Thanks for posting. I’ve been planning to buy this pistol myself.

The TX22 seems to be the gun that has somewhat redeemed Taurus's reputation. (or maybe not)

I have heard good things about these. Unlike other pistols they make. I'd like to try one out.

The G3 is also really, really nice. I prefer it over the rest of my "budget pistols"

Althoigh, ive never had an issue with any Taurus I own.
Including a PT 92, G3, Judge Poly, Spectrum, and 856.

I think the same problem occurs with other pistols that stack "rimmed" cartridges in a magazine.

It's just the nature of that particular beast.

Personally I can't see the point of buying one unless you just like to go to the range and burn up ammo. BTW..nothing wrong with that.

You're probably right - it's something that I've been mindful of since I experienced it and it hasn't been an issue

It's a standard sized, featured and operating gun chambered in .22 making it a good training gun or first gun.

Because once you're tired of burning 20-50cents a round on 9mm, 40, 45, etc you can sit there and burn 2 cents a round on 22LR.

LOL. Burning through 40$ of 22LR is an all day event, whereas other calibers is an hour if you're lucky!

Completely agree - - many that profess to be afraid of pistols do quite well running some .22 ammo out

$40 worth of 9mm, .40 S&W, or .45 ACP can easily disappear in just minutes.

I like mine. Great little shooter! Just be sure and load like you would a center fire. If you pull down on the round knob like I do on my Ruger MK2 and the rounds don’t stagger you will have malfunctions.
