Default Taurus Curve

Anyone shot the Taurus Curve? Opinions?

From the write up in Guns and Ammo it sounds like a great pocket gun. Solves several carry issues. Ugly as crap.

I saw them the other day at the gun store and thought what a strange looking gun.

The trigger has horrible feel (it feels like it has multiple reset points, but it doesn't) and even though it is double-action only- it does not have a "second-strike" capability on a misfire.

I have never shot one or even held one but really dont see the appeal. What carry issues does it solve that a quality holster and any other single stack auto wouldn't? Not a fan of .380 also, so that is my biggest bias.

Yeah found a few more reviews and the curve is a no-go for me. I carry an old reliable S&W wheel gun but it's a bit bulky for personal carry. Was looking at Ruger LCP, Sig Saur, and Glock.

They have horrible reviews and I believe they had a major recall on them already.

J-Frame Smith with a pocket holster. Can't go wrong with that choice. IMHO of course.
