    I was browsing the firearms counter at Academy in the woodlands Sunday, when I spotted a Taurus CT2 carbine in 9mm. Of course I had to fondle it and maybe even drooled on it a little.
    I have been anticipating these since the were first shown 3years ago. There is an article on them in this months G&A if you missed it.
    It felt pretty good in the hands, except the safety seemed unreachable with any sort of firing grip. The only downfall is the stinking 10 round mag bullshit.
    I would absolutely love to take one home, but with one stinking 10 rounder, is it really worth $800?

    I don't have anything against Taurus, but for that kinda money I would be buyin' a Beretta CX4 from Bud's.

    Saw the same carbine at my local Academy's and couldn't believe the price. That is not competitive at all! I know Taurus is trying to improve their reputation but it's not there yet for me. I'm sure not sinking $800+ when I could just get a Beretta equivalent and also know I have better magazine availability for it.

    Am I the only one who thinks that a Hi-Point looks better than that thing?

    The HiPoint 995 is less than $300. 10 round magazines are all that's available for them that will actually work, but there's always the option of more than one magazine being carried. I have a 9mm and a .45 ACP HiPoint and they actually shoot pretty well out to 100 yards.

    Where would you carry the hi point and how many extra mags?
    I'm kidding lol. Those hi points are definitely fun.
