Thoughts on the Taurus Curve


Taurus Ad Copy

Taurus Ad Copy (Under Fair Use)

  • Product Quality
    • Taurus has improved their product quality a lot since the 1980s/1990s
    • One could also argue that they still have a way to go until they are past the YMMV (“Your mileage my vary”) stage
  • Contouring
    • We are going to see this in future firearms designs from other manufacturers.
  • Integrated lights
    • Weapon-mounted lights have their time and place to use but they do pose additional training issues to be aware of.
    • I would not be surprised to see more firearms manufacturers go for the “slim” approach to weapon mounted lights or even integrate a flashlight into the gun itself.
  • Integrated Laser Sights
    • I like the concept as long as it involves a high quality laser and an activation mechanism on the grip (a la CrimsonTrace rather than a switch or button that require fine motor skills to activate.
  • Trigger
    • I am not surprised that initial first impressions said the trigger pull was somewhat heavy
    • Speculation: This may be to “lawyer proof” a gun with a design that invites holster-less carry (which I’m not crazy about) with the integrated clip draw inspired device on it.
  •  Sights
    • I don’t like the fact that the gun does not have iron sights. Not even the halfway nubs on the Ruger LCP…
Yes, it really is shaped like that.

    I don’t like the fact that it doesn’t have sights. Laser sights are a nifty gimmick, but I have never cared for them much: I find it more intuitive to go straight to my iron sights.
