    I bought a Taurus G3C several months ago to be my concealed pistol. Read a ton of really good reviews, shoots really well, comfortable, etc. a little while back I got my CPL in the mail and found some defensive Ammo. Wouldn’t cycle it properly. I’d get a round down range, next round the slide wouldn’t close all the way, or it would jam. It really turned me off. After reading up on the issue, apparently that happens to a lot of people with the G3C. I think I’ve got it broken in enough to where this isn’t happening anymore, but being my carry gun and the thing I would use to defend myself if the time ever came. It’s lost all of my trust. I looked at two guns today that I would trade that in for. M&P M2.0 compact and the FN 509 compact. Both incredibly reliable handguns. My question is, should I trust in my G3C again and chock it up to the break in period? or upgrade to something more reputable where I know it’s going to be reliable right out of the box?

    Get something like the two other guns you mentioned or a glock, taraus has awful qc and are generally unreliable. The problem you are experiencing is a flaw in the gun and has nothing to do with a break in period.

    Upgrade, Taurus is notoriously for QC issues.

    If you don’t trust it now, you won’t ever fully trust it. Upgrade to better pistol and never look back.
