The people at Taurus really stepped out of the box with The Curve – one of the things folks get all head scratchy about when it gets to the “Bruce – can you help me figure out which gun to buy?” thing is the simple fact that’s just where it starts – they have decided on the pistol so now – which holster? – mounted light? – laser? – night sights? – People just don’t realize they have just started spending money with the purchase of a pistol . . .
And Furthermore – It’s raspberry – NOT pink!!
My blushing bride and I were perusing the internet one day and ran across The Curve in this color . . .
Comes with a belt/pants clip – no holster needed . . .
We were like – Damn – that’s so ugly it’s cute – let’s buy it! – so we did . . .
Hides pretty good under the Sig . . .
Sig P232 ain’t hiding behind it – that’s for sure!
Now you see why it’s called “The Curve” – Taurus curved the grip of the pistol as far as they could and still get a straight magazine in it – the curve snugs against you and the pistol just disappears against your hip when it is inside your waist band – no sights to snag – the “hash marks” on the back of the slide intersect with the center line of the barrel and work pretty good out to about 7 yards – the grip texture gives you really good purchase on the pistol . . .
And it comes with a laser/light combo and a trigger guard holster that covers the trigger and has a lanyard that you can thread through a belt loop or safety pin it to your jogging shorts – pretty complete package – all you need to add is ammo and practice . . .
I didn’t realize how washed out the laser dot was in this pic until I got it posted up here – and no I’m not digging it out of the lock box to retake the pic – the laser is adjustable – up / down / left / right – this laser is set up so the magic hole lands on the dot at 21 feet . . .
Small – lightweight – easily concealable firearms are out there in just about any flavor you desire these days – you see what I did there – The Sig P232 is like a Bentley or a Rolls Royce – most of the “little” pistols now don’t compare well to it but the Sig is no longer in production and unless you are willing to do the Gun Broker thing or something similar – or find one someone is willing to part with – your looking at something that is in current production – and there are a lot of choices out there . . .
I am already working on the next “Compared to” post – I wonder which one it will be? Let me give you a hint . . .
It’s frustrating to me when a manufacturer comes so close . . .
Have Fun! – Run the Gun! – and remember – Fish Heads are Cheap!!
