There's nothing worse than having a great gun and not having the holster you like to use available.looking at new guns thinking about a taurus 24/7-oss-ds40 or a smith 4003tsw both 40 cal which one would you pick? why?
I've read several good reviews on the Taurus 24/7 OSS and I've also shot one. (The one I shot was chambered for .45 ACP, not the .40 S&W like you're planning ongetting.)I likedthe Taurus; it wascomfortable, itshot well and it fit my hands well. My USP is slightly more accurate, but the Taurus was definitely an accurate pistol.
I have no trigger-time on the S&W 4003 TSW, but S&W has been working hard to get their reputation in autos equal to the reputation of their revolvers.
You get more capacity with the Taurus in a slightly lighter but slightly larger frame. Both have comparable sights and have tactical rails. The two are priced within $75 of eachother if you shop around, with the Taurus being slightly more costly.
