NEW Taurus G3 TORO: The Best Budget Handgun?

NEW Taurus G3 TORO: The Best Budget Handgun?

The original G3 and G3C are already two of the best handguns for the money, so putting a red dot on top lets them punch way above their weight class. In this episode of TFBTV, Hop shoots the new optics ready G3 TORO with NODs.

Taurus and night vision, the only two things I love any more. If only someone would make a halfway decent holster for it…

Caliber: 9x19mm

    The g3 toro slide works on the g3c



  2. troy toth on August 19, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    You know what need to hang out with us



  3. Montavius McManus on August 19, 2022 at 8:03 pm

    Taurus has gotten a lot better. I have the Pt111 G2 an the G3 in my collection an both run flawlessly about 1300 rounds threw my G2 not one hiccup



  4. Haze Gray Prepper on August 19, 2022 at 8:03 pm

    Looks like I found my next full size handgun purchase. Thanks Hop!



  5. Johnny Hershberger on August 19, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    Got both…… G3 & G3c, I’m in the same wheelhouses as you, I’m a fan, but in the minority at my local gun range. That’s ok with me…. I have 2 reliable guns and can afford to buy lots of ammo with the money Taurus has saved me! Thanks Hop!



  6. Jo-el Cody on August 19, 2022 at 8:05 pm

    Bottom line is, Taurus is coming in the "most reliable conversation". Prove me wrong



  7. Erik Leatherwood on August 19, 2022 at 8:05 pm

    I just purchased a brand new G3 TORO and it fails to go into battery on almost any hollow point. It can shoot ball ammo fine but not hollow points. Taurus is not easy to work with but I did send it back to the manufacturer for warranty repair and they said the barrel was defective and then sent my gun back with a different barrel. After receiving the new barrel I tested it with a variety of top shelf hollow point ammo and it still failed to go into battery. Academy sports refused to refund and Taurus wants me to send it in for repair again. This is a well documented problem that is all over the internet and youtube so I am not the only one having this issue. DO NOT BUY this pos gun, its a waste of your time and money!

    Hello, can the mag release be switched for lefty?



  9. Dean-KA0TRL on August 19, 2022 at 8:06 pm

    Get off you politically correct fad of no safety. If you don’t like a safety don’t use it but it’s handy for those that do.



  10. Ben Brumbley on August 19, 2022 at 8:07 pm

    Anyone looking for holsters for a g3 with a light or dot or anything close quarters carry makes them, I have one really good holster in my opinion.



  11. Choco Latte on August 19, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    Taurus = Bull; Toro = Bull
    Bull, Bull



  12. troy toth on August 19, 2022 at 8:10 pm

    Okay I’m with the best bike builders in the in the world I’m with you



  13. KB Klucas on August 19, 2022 at 8:11 pm

    Why not just glue the spacer in place on the 17 round mag?



  14. troy toth on August 19, 2022 at 8:12 pm

    Of course we want Red Dot sights



  15. kui on August 19, 2022 at 8:15 pm

    This guy gives me school shooter vibes



  16. Justin Horn on August 19, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    They gonna have a optics ready hi point next



  17. jim haworth on August 19, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    I bought a Taurus G3 Toro 20 yard it was off a foot and a half I sent it back to Taurus they said there was nothing wrong with it I hope they don’t treat all the customers that way



  18. Todd Packer on August 19, 2022 at 8:18 pm

    Just wondering if anyone has had the same issue as me with the G3C TORO. My #2 optics plate broke at the front on the thin side. I’ve only got around 250 rounds through it since the optic was installed. I torqued the bolts down so there is no over-torquing scenario. Just looking for help.



  19. Sam Rodgers on August 19, 2022 at 8:18 pm

    Considering that i jus purchased my 1st firearm (G3) I’ll subscribe.



  20. ronald chappell on August 19, 2022 at 8:19 pm

    Taurus make the best guns



  21. Tom Ray on August 19, 2022 at 8:19 pm

    Use the manual safety and those nde will go away. Can’t train enough to flip a safety off then you probably will forget what the trigger does.



  22. jesus rivera on August 19, 2022 at 8:20 pm

    get a hold of BORDERTOWN HOLSTERS THEY’ll MAKE YOU A CUSTOM HOLSTER!!



  23. j khan on August 19, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    Caink tsp s is batter or Taurus G3 is batter ? Waiting for your honest opinion ,



  24. Patriot Motorsports on August 19, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    I just bought a G3c and am struggling to find a red dot sight; can you please recommend one or two? TIA.



  25. CharleyRider on August 19, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    I purchased one today, complete with a Burris red dot for $399.



  26. Kosmic Blast Media Group on August 19, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    Great Review, about to purchase one as a second to my Glock. This helped me decide 🙂



  27. Blueberry Zzz on August 19, 2022 at 8:26 pm

    if I could afroed night vision i would be shooting a fn 45 tac lmao



  28. Aurora Borealis on August 19, 2022 at 8:26 pm

    What about the precocked striker? Is the gun drop safe?



  29. troy toth on August 19, 2022 at 8:29 pm

    Satan says you and me are a lot of me



  30. krush1202 on August 19, 2022 at 8:29 pm

    Not the second time I watched this video… been trying to figure out where I heard your voice before.

    Are you related to the host from the original Twilight Zone?



  31. CowboyX1000 on August 19, 2022 at 8:34 pm

    Hop! At 6:13 did you smack the sight to release the slide? Or what happened there?



  32. Jerry Gamerdinger on August 19, 2022 at 8:34 pm

    Just exactly the channel I was looking for! I have a G3 with an aftermarket threaded barrel, but looking for an optic. You put exactly the optic I wondered about. Thank you!



  33. Mikey Lee on August 19, 2022 at 8:35 pm

    FYI, you can take 15 round G3 mags and fit then with the Plus 2 adapter plate that Mec-Gar makes and they’ll actually hold 18 rounds. So you can carry a G3 with 18+1



  34. Shelly Sheer on August 19, 2022 at 8:36 pm

    Versus a Glock 19 Taurus as well can be and totally hot roded as mine is.



  35. NamekianMMA on August 19, 2022 at 8:37 pm

    Guess who just got a Tactical model 😎



  36. Raven Flight on August 19, 2022 at 8:37 pm

    I’m an old school army issue 1911 kinda guy, so I have a hard time understanding why all the hate on safety levers.



  37. larry goodsell on August 19, 2022 at 8:44 pm

    Great, now I’m hooked on Mongolian spear fishing



  38. Dave Solo on August 19, 2022 at 8:46 pm

    Got over 2K through G3 and it has run flawlessly



  39. Handz on August 19, 2022 at 8:47 pm

    Everybody hates Glock sights and swaps them out….



  40. 3029dz on August 19, 2022 at 8:48 pm

    Manual safety is why i will not buy a Glock



  41. Sanders Lockhart on August 19, 2022 at 8:49 pm

    What holster was you using?



  42. hollyfoxThe on August 19, 2022 at 8:49 pm

    8.62 with the first round at 3.5. Dead.



  43. MaximGhost on August 19, 2022 at 8:50 pm

    8:22 Why the hate on the manual safety? Just set it to fire and leave it there. The safety is there for those of us who want to do Condition 1 carry like we do with our 1911s.



  44. Francisco Guerrero on August 19, 2022 at 8:51 pm

    Toro is Spanish for bull, or taurus.



  45. tlt40s&w 70 on August 19, 2022 at 8:53 pm

    And part of the video you’re not riding that reset your fingers coming all the way forward. Brother you need to ride that reset your follow-up shots will be more accurate plain and simple



  46. ἜρωςLaycupid999 on August 19, 2022 at 8:53 pm

    I just got one I think it’s pretty gun no cap 🧢



  47. troy toth on August 19, 2022 at 8:54 pm

    You know so many races are combined



  48. TacticalDesire on August 19, 2022 at 8:56 pm

    The Phlster Floodlight will accommodate this.



  49. Toni Borg on August 19, 2022 at 8:57 pm

    awesome gun



  50. Trevor Duncan on August 19, 2022 at 8:58 pm

    i LOVE my g3 and have been wanting to red dot it… I am FOR SURE going to snag a g3 toro if i can find one
