Editor’s Note:

“The Taurus G2S isn’t innovative or new. It doesn’t offer anything a dozen other pistols don’t offer. What it does do is remain accurate, lightweight, relatively reliable, and easy to use, all at sub-$200. When you don’t have a lot of extra cash on hand and don’t live in the best area of town — a really cheap, reliable, safe, concealable handgun might be the thing you’ve been waiting for. Guns like the Taurus G2S are what make the second amendment available for all Americans.” – Travis Pike

Product Description

The Taurus G2S is a slimline, single stack take on the G2C. Sporting either 9mm, this gun measures 6.3 inches in overall length with a 3.2-inch barrel. And it weighs in around 20 ounces unloaded. It’s bare bones but a budget-friendly option for those that need it.

By The Numbers - Taurus G2S

It is carry gun accurate or minute-of-bad-guy and that’ll get you by for both home defense and concealed carry. Don’t expect Glock 40 range or accuracy, but it’ll get you where you need to go.
Two failures to eject, and the magazine issue on top of the sight being loose knocks a couple of points off here. It seems to run fine now, but we’ll see.
You can add Talon grips, new sights, and a light or laser, and you can customize the insides with parts from Galloway precision and Lakeline LLC.
I like how the gun is laid out, how it feels in my hand and how it handles. The downside is I have some pink scare tissue on the web of my hand from slide bite.

“The Ruger EC9s 9mm pistol is great as a beginner carry gun. It has lots of safety mechanisms and upgrade options. Best part is it’s very affordable with street price around $280.” – Sean Curtis

final verdict

“A $180 gun is a $180 gun. It runs well enough and looks and feels good in the hand. So for the price…it delivers a lot. Plus, the magazines are fairly cheap also. That’s a huge plus. If you need something for protection but don’t have a lot of cash to spend, go with the G2S. You won’t be disappointed.” – Travis Pike
