    Maybe they really mean a 20 shot endurance test.

    English uses commas, some other languages use decimals.

    You know you're American when you don't know basic foreigner stuff. (laughing with you)

    That's probably the truth!

    And a meme is born!

    20 rounds! That must have been a ringer! No way it was a random, off the shelf pistol. 20 rounds....yea, right.

    Note that the poster doesn't even say how the pistol did. There could have been 1.000 failures for all we know.

    From a 2019 TFB article:

    "The acquisition of 10,000 9x19mm Taurus Striker TS-9 pistols by the PNP – Philippine National Police has finally been confirmed by the Brazilian manufacturer, with deliveries in three batches: 2,000 units in 2018 and the remaining 8,000 examples in 2019. The testing protocol made and carried out by PNP at the manufacturer’s industrial facilities in São Leopoldo, Rio Grande do Sul State, was as follows:

    Two hundred pistols were randomly chosen from each batch, and two of them submitted to the test program, including metrology, trigger pull weight, drops, and shots fired after exposed to mud, sand, and water. That was followed by 20,000 shots being fired, after which the particular batch was approved."

    It still doesn't indicate how many failures the pistols experienced.

    I wouldn't say that the PNP going from IMI to Taurus was an improvement, though the price was almost certainly less.


    (You can see the PNP engraving on the slide and frame of this used IMI Jericho that I have.)

    I'd take a moderately used IMI over a new Taurus.

    Guns for poor people (and countries) who may or may not know what they're getting or a toy for the person with better guns to count on.

    They'd be better off making and issuing something like a Star model B 9x19 or blow-back 7.65 mm.

    I'd rather have a less-capable but high quality/ reliable / durable gun than one that checks boxes but isn't as quality.

    This is so true…LE trade in Glocks and S&W’s are the epitome of a low cost but totally worth it gun!

    The TS9 may turn out to be one of those "here today, discontinued tomorrow" guns, but feedback so far seems to be almost universally positive. Supposedly Taurus hired a designer named Wilhelm Bubits to design (or help design) this gun.

    You know you’re an American when you…

    Don’t have a passport
    Don’t speak two or more languages
    Don’t know that football is played with a round ball

    And…
    Don’t GAF about your three limitations listed above.
