    "Brazil-based handgun maker Taurus has agreed to a $39 million settlement in a class action lawsuit alleging some of the company's most popular semi-automatic handguns can discharge when dropped and have a defective safety that allows the gun to fire even when it's engaged."

    That's too bad, some of their most comfortable and compact designs are on that list.

    OK, that answers my questions about buying a 111. Guess I'll go with the KT P 9 or P 11.

    The P11 isn't technically drop safe. A hard enough drop on the muzzle could cause it to fire because of the design. The PF9 is, if I remember correctly, but it is much less comfortable to shoot than the P11 and has a lower capacity.

    The article says the G2 models arent included in the recall. The current model PT111 is a G2. I have one...lol !!!
     
  9. Glad to see that because I really like my PT111 G2. Even thinking about buying another one for my wife.

    I have been aware of the Taurus unsafe drop law suit for some time. Decided at that time not to buy any semi-auto. But I recently did buy a Taurus .357 revolver. Excellent pistol.
