MIAMI, Fla. -(Ammoland.com)- Taurus USA is announcing their appearance at the 2017 Great American Outdoors Show in Harrisburg, PA currently taking place until February 12.

The new SPECTRUM that shook the industry with its first debut last month at SHOT Show will be displayed for consumers to see first hand.

The new SPECTRUM leads the concealed carry market in both function and innovation with its comfortable grip, non-energized trigger and comfortable everyday carry.

The Great American Outdoors Show is a nine day show highlighting manufacturers from hunting and shooting to fishing boats and outfitters. Stop by booth #473 to see and feel the difference of the American made TAURUS SPECTRUM pistol.

Taurus USA engineers took a fresh look at how the gun interfaces with the user. The concealed carry customer is concerned about control, comfort and safety while shooting a micro 380 pistol.

To address this challenge, Taurus USA collaborated with PolyOne Corporation – a global provider of specialized polymer materials, services, and solutions. Together they conducted a major ergonomic study to better understand the challenges of making a small pistol that fits various hand sizes.

Drawing on PolyOne’s expertise, Taurus USA executed an enhanced grip design featuring unique contours that enable the hand to naturally conform to the firearm, providing a more secure grip.

Taurus USA also took an innovative approach in addressing the challenges of slide racking by replacing traditional slide serrations and redesigned the slide itself.

Taurus USA developed a stylish design which allows the fingers to engage indentations on the slide, providing positive contact points for enhanced traction, minimizing short strokes while racking – enhancing safety.

Additionally, the same concept of soft touch material that is used on the grip is also incorporated into the slide design to enhance traction. These elements, when combined, create a comfortable manipulation when chambering a round.

The SPECTRUM pistol has a safe, long and smooth 7-9 pound trigger that offers the crisp release common to a striker-fired system. Unique to Taurus, this true double-action only (DAO) trigger system features a non-energized striker, with no pre-cock or pre-load applied, ensuring no contact between the sear and striker.

The wide, flat trigger aids in correct finger placement. For additional safety, the gun comes equipped with a striker block, providing peace of mind for everyday carry.

The full design of the gun has been taken into consideration, to the point of take down. It requires only one turn on the take down pin to disassemble the gun, separating the slide assembly from the frame. Keeping safety in mind, the trigger does not have to be pulled to disassemble the gun.

Another feature providing greater versatility of the SPECTRUM pistol is the reversible magazine release for right or left handed shooters.

2 body mass and a head shot will probably do it just fine

Funny to hear people berate the .380. same folks say the same Shiite about the .22. it’s such BS. Most .22’s can staple a target ten rounds right quick. Two three rounds of .380 will put you down quick too.

Who are you kidding? BTW the TCP .380 has a great trigger.

lol… Why would you give him 7 rounds to begin with? One or two shots should do the job, unless you can’t hit the broad side of a barn or hoping to shoot his eye out with a pellet gun. I would NEVER use a 380 for home protection! Those 380 cap guns are for your wife/gf to practice at the range with. Do you want the criminal suing you for pain & suffering and other liberal crap in court? Man up and use 00 buck in the 12g shotgun, backed-up with a 44mag. With me, the sob with be… Read more »

That’s a good looking concealed carry. Only problem with me buying one is that in 380 I might piss the bad guy off. I’ll be right there when it comes out in 9 Luger.

Every thing about it is nice, except the Trigger. The older one was around 5 lb pull, and this 7-9 is going to cause a added cost of haveing the trigger replaced or reworked.

I’m sure Taurus thanks you for running their ad for free, but when will it be available? Have any of you shot it? So far, I see people gushing over it like an iTard over a new iPhone, but have not even see it shoot.
