Forjas Taurus is a Brazilian Firearm Manufacturer based out of Sao Leopoldo, Rio Grande Do Sul, Brasil. Established back in 1939 and has never looked back. Initially founded as a tool and die forging plant, today Taurus manufactures firearms, plastics, body armor, helmets and civil construction.
While Taurus manufactures a wide assortment of firearms such as pistols, revolvers, and law enforcement weapons. One of the most popular firearms that Taurus has produced is the G2C. The G2C was engineered and designed specifically for everyday carry. The G2C strikes the ultimate balance between comfort and confidence.
What seperates the G2c from other pistols?
If there is another popular handgun to compare the G2c it arguably has to be the Glock 26. Almost identical in height coming in at 5 inches and 5.04 inches respectfully. The G2c is the lighter option which can be either a pro or a con depending on your personal preference, the G2c weighs 21.15 oz.

With the 9mm Luger the Taurus G2c has magazine capabilities of 10+1 and 12+1, and the 40 S&W has magazine capacity of 10+1.
However, a big time selling point of the G2c is the price point. Other comparative pistols such as the Glock 26 generally retail for around $450 to roughly $600. The G2c retails for nearly half of that price coming in a $240-$340 brand new. While some would assume that a lower price means a lower quality firearm. However in our opinion with the G2c that simply is not the case.
