I was wondering how many out there carry a Public Defender? I have never been a Taurus fan but I really like this weapon. I purchased the poly frame version and it has worked great for conceal carry and it's actually 2oz lighter fully loaded than my M&P 9. One of the other things I llke is the fact its like having a mini shotgun. If I really had to list a negative point that would be the recoil of course, but it is manageable.
