[3.2.4] It was Commodus' practice to keep in custody the children of the governors of the provinces in order to have pledges of their loyalty and good will. Severus, familiar with this practice, when he was made emperor and Julianus was still alive, grew anxious about his children. Sending for them in secret, he had them brought to him from Rome to prevent their falling into the hands of someone else.
[3.2.10] Then the soldiers on each side rushed forth from the two cities as if from regular army camps and crashed together; after a savage struggle, the supporters of Severus won a decisive victory. The adherents of Niger who survived the battle fled from those regions and poured into the Taurus Mountains, where they blocked the passes and held the fortifications under guard. But Niger, leaving a force which he considered adequate for the defense of these barricades, hurried off to Antioch to collect troops and money.
"Too small" - It is an EDC, CCW piece. Not everyone wants a full size, and from all of the guns I have shot, this size is about perfect for small enough to conceal yet large enough to afford a proper and full grip."Two safeties? Why?" - Speaking for myself, I like the fact that the slide safety not only prevents gun from being fired, but it also prevents the slide from being moved out of battery until ready to shoot. For anyone used to the old "cocked and locked", the slide safety is an old friend and perfect fit on this gun. ".9mm? No way." - Why? Popular, cheap to shoot (comparatively), capable of stopping an assailant effectively, and used across platforms so you can have a Taurus, Sig, S&W, Springfield, Kahr, Glock, etc and not have to have different ammo for each firearm. The fact that YOU do not care for 9mm just puts you in the minority. It is also apparent that nothing on this gun, even when popular or common, is going to please you anyway."False sense of security." - Why? It is a reliable, concealable piece in a large enough caliber to be effective. Nothing false about that."Steel is REAL." - I have a full steel 1911 in 9mm and a G2C polymer/steel in 9mm and can tell you, both shoot real bullets, and they shoot them real well."Buy a real gun folks." - AKA, "Buy the gun I think is the best." Sure, send me the money and I will happily buy a gun you approve of. Until then, I think I will determine how best to spend my money. Speaking of money, just picked up a G2C "out the door" for $178.76 after Taurus rebate. That includes tax, transfer fee, everything! What "real gun" would you rather I spent my money on? Keep in mind, it has to be new, reliable, name brand, lifetime warranty and with two magazines.... Keep trying, you can't.I have both the G2C and it's grandfather, the PT-111 Pro. I own numerous steels including a 1911, a 92 and 75. I have no issue with the G2C or the PT-111 Pro being my EDC pistols, they are well worth the cost, size and purpose they were designed for.To be fair, it is not perfect. Most of my other guns do not have the "safety trigger" that Glock has used for years, they style with the blade in the middle that has to be depressed. This has led to me learning to pull the trigger centered on the joint of my finger, not my finger pad. With a trigger blade safety like this, the trigger has a double "break" as I barely engage the safety blade enough as it sits in that valley of my finger joint. That is what practice is for. There is no substitute for practice and familiarity before relying on it to protect one's life and property.This is not a poser gun, it is not some flashy chromed out showpiece that is always shown being fired in that infamous "sideways" grip. This is a tool, a tool designed to work reliably and accurately. On that front, it is most definitely a real gun and capable of fulfilling its purpose in the hands of many. That probably explains why I now own three.
I like the Underdog, and Yeah the sub 300.00 price really peaks my interest , I have a 111g2 and a G2c plus 709 all with KT triggers , Now waiting for the G3c to become available again, , I have Sigs, Bersa's, Ruger's , Honor Defense , sorry no Glocks they just dont fit my hands well , its the Trigger reach ,for me uncomfortable , and with Now the way all this craziness is, I want all of My gun dollars to go Farther for more ammo ,That Is why they are not staying on the Shelves at all!! the are at the Right Price point ! and a very Good Gun ! Good review , Happy Shooting ,
I was very skeptical buying a Taurus but I am happy with the G2, perfect for concealed carry and it just feels right in my hands. I've no issues with misfires as of yet. I've tried many different types of ammo and again as of yet no issues. Maybe Taurus is trying to change their game. As far as price you can't go wrong with this gun for self protection on a budget.
GeorgeG Everyone and anyone an an does build an occasional "Lemon". I have not been a Big nor Small Taurus fan. I never really handled them maybe one or two over the years. One a revolver that was a S&W clone an had no issues with it the other was a Taurus that I forget the model but was definitely a sub compact and it no issues either.That being said, I am a BIG Ruger fan among others.I have carried .380 ACP for many years before the Sub compact 9mms came about....AMT made a subcompact .380 called "The Back-Up" and it was definitely too small for my hand.....They also made a tiny .45 ACP that was also too small for my hand.I saw the Taurus G2c and for the price I could not go wrong on buying one. With the rebate it was around $155.00 Plus tax after the $25.00 rebate.....So far it has performed much better than I ever expected! It has always went bang. NO malfunctions of any kind. Groups better than I ever imagined it would.I am not out to shoot National Matches with it! It works for my purposes and my wants and needs. It fits my hands and is pleasant to shoot.Apparently it also does for the majority of people that have bought an shot them. It carries ALMOST TWICE the ammo of my .380 ACP and easy to carry.I can and do understand your opinion and feelings and being "Once Bitten and being Twice Shy."BUT that does not mean they don't deserve a Second Chance....just like any other manufactured item.....and especially with so many that have had such positive experiences with the G2c.It seems you are happy with your Walther and as long as you are happy and confident and it fits your needs in what you carry, is reliable, and you can shoot it accurately is what matters the most. Unfortunately the G2c that you got is one of those occasional Lemons. That seems to be quite rare compared to the vast majority of G2c owners.....
For maximum safety and accountability, use of Full Self-Driving (Beta) will be suspended if improper usage is detected. Improper usage is when you, or another driver of your vehicle, receive five 'Forced Autopilot Disengagements'. A disengagement is when the Autopilot system disengages for the remainder of a trip after the driver receives several audio and visual warnings for inattentiveness. Driver-initiated disengagements do not count as improper usage and are expected from the driver. Keep your hands on the wheel and remain attentive at all times. Use of any hand-held devices while using Autopilot is not allowed.
Full Self-Driving is in early limited access Beta and must be used with additional caution. It may do the wrong thing at the worst time, so you must always keep your hands on the wheel and pay extra attention to the road. Do not become complacent. When Full Self-Driving is enabled your vehicle will make lane changes off highway, select forks to follow your navigation route, navigate around other vehicles and objects, and make left and right turns. Use Full Self-Driving in limited Beta only if you will pay constant attention to the road, and be prepared to act immediately, especially around blind corners, crossing intersections, and in narrow driving situations. 2b1af7f3a8
