I won't start bashing the taurus, I have a couple of them and they have worked pretty good for me. I would not have bought one in the past due to issues that friends of mine had but I ran across a real good deal on a PT92 and I have been very happy with the taurus guns I have bought since then.
I will say I bought my wife a pt709 that needed about 250 rounds down the pipe before it stopped having fte problems. Five hundred rounds later it has not missed a beat since.
I would look for a good iwb holster to use for concealed carry. Here in Virginia it is also an open carry option.
I would look at how well it shoots, and how reliably it shoots with various types of ammo before making my final choice on carry ammo. The beauty of a 45 is that something that is marginal in a 380 is devastating in 45.
