    Is this a trick question? There is no comparison. Reliability, accessories, cheap factory mags, holsters of every description known to man, etc. The Glock is at the top of the food chain for defensive semi auto handguns.

    The taurus is not in the same class.

    You might call Glock and have them send you a recoil spring for your Glock. It will be free. Just tell them you need it. They will not rag you.

    A "trainer" in my area preaches against the Glock. Fact is, he is mad because Glock would not give him an exclusive distributorship in the Middle Tennesse area! LOL

    I'll go the other way here. I have a Taurus PT24/7 40 S&W. I like it. The lifetime guarantee was the deciding factor. I just got it a couple of months ago and so far I like it. It may be my new carry gun. JMHO.

    Cad or VW? Mercedes or ford? The Taurus is a cheap gun and will drop in price when shot. It does not have a good resale return.

    GLOCK -- I have a 23 and carried it until I moved to IL. I know...I know....IL sucks so far as being gun friendly but I couldn't turn down the job. I have not found any type of ammo that the glock will fail to cycle. To me taurus to glock is like stoeger to any reliable gun on the market.

    Have had both and sold the Taurus. The early Taurus guns had problems bad enough they had to be sent back for repair as did the mags. Lots more goodies for the Glock to dress it up as well. If it is going to be your carry gun, go Glock and know it will fire and feed if you have to use it.

    The Glock is the Cadillac and the Taurus is the Ford. (Hmm, I guess there is a Ford named Taurus). Nuff said. No comparison. Ed

    I have 2 Taurus autos . PT 99 9mm and PT101 40sw . Good reliable guns .

    I also own 10 Taurus revolvers , 3 Colts , 1 Browning , 9 Rugers ,2 Sigs , and 1 S W .

    I have no reason to be biased . I shoot alot and often .

    Taurus are good guns . Thats why they have a lifetime warranty.

    Taurus makes good guns.

    Glock makes better guns.


    1000's upon 1000's of LEO agencies across the US can't all be wrong.

    If ya get it and it breaks, I can tell ya how to fix it over the phone and all you will need is a pin punch and a pair of needle nose pliers at most. Try that with another brand. Ya I like them.

    I never got a Glock because of that heavy first shot trigger pull .Cops need that for safety reasons .

    That's because alot of them aren't familiar with their weapons .
