I own a Beretta in 92 and 96, both Inox, and love them to death. Taurus is a cheaper alternative to an extremely similar gun. Some love the PT's, some hate em. when I was buying my gun at Cabela's, The display model PT was actually broken just from the use it gets as a display model, not ever having been fired - the slide wouldnt lock back because the slide catch would wiggle out just enough to let the slide back into place. So I paid the extra monies and got the Beretta.
I do love the pearl handle and the gold touches. it does look like a very nice work of art.
