    There is a Taurus 1911 thread on here somwhere. I recommend against it. I have one. Also had a PT-140. I am not a basher who's never had a Taurus. That's all I gotta say.

    over the years i have owned many taurus guns. some where bad, some had small problems, some need some f&b, and some were ok. just never know which i would get untill i got it to the range. now this was many mango season ago. heard they have gotten better with their guns.

    Congratulations on the layaway. I have three Taurus and have not had any problems with any of them.

    I had a PT 911 not the 1911 mind you. I put 1000's of rounds though it with no issues. Now days Taurus makes a good gun.

    Congrats on the new 1911.

    Curious as to why you're starting another thread saying basically the same thing?

    Good luck with your Taurus...I hope it serves you well too.
    If you have the organ donor box marked "Yes" on your concealed carry permit, you may want to consider more training.

    I have looked at them but the only prices I have seen could get me a Springfield, and I would rather have a Springer... what'd you pay? Heard good things about RIA and mixed on the Taurus, let us know how it does periodically!

    Congrats on the new pistol.

    Thanks all for your reply's pro taurus or not and as for staring a new thread similar to another,donn't reply if it bothers you.I'm just trying to educate myself on weapons that i would like or have purchased by reading feedback from y'all.My decision is mine but it's nice to know others are interested in helping with a weapon purchase.That's why i joined this forum.
    Thanks all,
    Eddie
