Taurus®, manufacturer of premium handguns for defense, hunting, and sport shooting, is thrilled to announce the company’s new GX4 micro-compact 9mm pistol has won two Caliber Awards for Excellence at this year’s National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers (NASGW) Expo & Annual Meeting in Columbus, Ohio. The Taurus GX4™ earned the Best New Handgun award and the Best New Overall Product for 2021.
The annual Caliber Awards recognize sporting goods manufactures whose newest products meet unbiased criteria as judged by a panel of NASGW members and select representatives of the Professional Outdoor Media Association (POMA). This year’s field included over 130 entries from manufacturers across the firearms, ammunition, optics, and accessories categories. Qualifying product entries are judged based on several key parameters, including innovation, uniqueness, value, presentation, and market need.
“The NASGW and its members are valued Taurus partners,” said Taurus USA CEO Bret Vorhees, “and POMA’s experienced writers and editors are important to our outreach efforts for educating consumers on new Taurus products and our ongoing pursuit of firearm innovation and technology initiatives. For these two critical industry groups to select the recently introduced Taurus GX4 as Best New Handgun and Best New Overall Product for 2021 is a true honor for all of us at Taurus.”
The Taurus GX4 is the company’s first-ever micro-compact 9mm semi-auto pistol and has received high marks from consumers and the shooting sports media for its full-featured performance. From its ergonomic polymer frame, deep concealability, impressive 11-round capacity, and category-leading accuracy and reliability, the Taurus GX4 sets new performance and handling benchmarks in the EDC/CCW handgun category.
