At The Range

Review of the Taurus PT-25

It all started a couple of Months before Christmas. I was looking for a new Concealed Carry gun my 9mm was just a little bulky for my liking so the search was on for a new pistol. Over the next several weeks I went to several gun shops looking for the right pistol for my liking there were a couple of features that I wanted the gun to have. I looked at several guns then I saw the Taurus PT-25. It had a nickel finish with Rosewood color grips and it was very comfortable in my hand. It was a small frame pistol with a 2.75 inch barrel and it weighed about 12 ounces it came with a 9 round magazine also. So I decided to get it the only problem was my wife told me I had to wrap it and put it under the tree for my Christmas present. So I unwrapped it on Christmas day and couldn’t wait to get to the range except that would be another 3 weeks before I could make it there.

Finally the day had come that I could go to the range. January 15th the temp outside was in the upper 50’s and I had gotten everything ready to head out got out to the range. When I got to the range there were a lot of people waiting on a spot so I decided that I would wait to because I couldn’t wait to shoot my new pistol. So I waited for a hour and a half for a spot to come open. Once I got my spot I started out shooting my Taurus 24/7 9mm, because I only had one box of 50 for my .25. Because the range I was at didn’t have anything closer than 25 yards I had to start out shooting at 25 yards and fired the first shot I struck the target low and to the left of the center. I took aim again and hit the target low again. I fired 9 times and all 9 of them hit the target some were low and to the left and some were just low. One of the things I like about this gun is there is very little recoil and a very smooth shooting gun. My overall opinion of the gun is that from about 15 yards it would be very accurate and a good conceal carry gun with the right holster. I give is 3.2 stars out of 4.

  1. I carry this gun and like it. It has very little recoil and I find it fun to shoot. Mine has been extremely reliable and at fifteen yards is very accurate.

    1. Great! There's a lot to be said for the small gun that you have with you vs. the big gun at home in the nightstand.

  2. I think it is an old Gun, but there is old saying that "Old is Gold".
