View Full Version : Taurus PT609 & PT917C

22-05-2010, 09:44 PM
Was browsing through some of my older photographs, and came across these - some photos of my Dad's PT609 and PT917C.

These photos were taken in daylight - no flash used. Some of the older members will remember the background from my posts in the The Knife Enthusiasts/Collectors Thread!.

Unfortunately, I cannot provide a full blown review on these guns, like some of our esteemed members, hence the pictures will have to suffice.

Looking at these photos, I just wish I could have spent some more time with the guns... :D

KageFox Bro, beautiful photography! (and nice guns too :D )

@khurramdool, ARLover, Aquarius, Gilani, Mangloo Ramzani: Thank you all for the appreciative comments! :)

@MIdreesTaj: Even though we hardly shoot them, Abba always likes to keep his guns in tip-top condition. When we went out to sell his Taurus PT57, the dealer couldn't believe that the gun was older than myself, though it had seen extensive CC.

If Anyone's wondering, the hollowpoints are the Serbian Prvi Partizan 9mm (Blue Box), the Hogue Grips are the Handall and Handall Junior and the holsters are both Fobus paddle holsters.

bravo KF, i love the background and guns look so new or barely used? is that so?
btw which camera did you use?

23-05-2010, 12:18 PM
Thank you, Glockcohlic, Faheem, Sensei, Yardie :)

Both guns had around 3-4 magazines of ammo shot through them.

As far as the camera is concerned, I used my DSLR, Sony A100, with a 50mm macro lens.

tooooooooooooooo good!!!!

your photography skills are good, i remember those photos of knife that you shared earlier with the same background, as you stated. And with this kinda camera in hand, you rarely use a flash, other tip-tops are enough to play with :-)

24-05-2010, 12:39 AM
@KF, bro Masha Allah, very nice indeed! you always had these very nice photography skills, and really your father keeps his guns very safe and in your own words tip-top condition.

@SPAYPANTHER, PrivateEye, HammadArshad, Pistol, LionHeart, Sparticas, vik, Naveed: Thank you all for your comments.

@Pistol: Unfortunately, the PT609 has not been fired as much as to put together a range report, but from the limited number of shots through it, I can make the following conclusions:

(1) Does not shoot POF reliably - often needs second strike - have seen upto 3-4 failures to fire per magazine.
(2) Fires Chinese 9mm reliably - two magazinefuls were rapid-fired without a hitch.
(3) Shoots Serbian HPs reliably - more accurate than the two aforementioned bullets.

This handgun is combat accurate - being a first-time 9mm shooter, I was able hit headshots at 7-10m.

This gun is easy to conceal. Adding the Hogue grip improves the grip-ability of this gun a great deal, as I'm sure many members can attest to.

Overall, with the right ammunition, I would trust this gun with my life - until I am somehow proved wrong :)
