    remington 870 for hd. taurus guns are hit and miss. sometime you can get a good one, the next time you get junk.

    I own 3 Taurus guns, a PT-92, PT-111 and a 605, all have been solid performers for me with no issues

    I have never had an issue with a Taurus revolver.

    "Ya", I have 2 Taurus revolvers, a Tracker 44mag & a Model 85. The Tracker needed a factory tune-up, but after that it is 100% reliable, and accurate too. This was my first handgun and I loaded it with 44spl for home defense. Speedloaders are avaliable for this gun. Maxfire Revolver Speedloader 44 Special 5-Shot Taurus 445 Package of 2 - MidwayUSA

    The Model 85 has been 100% reliable.

    Taurus products are hit and miss. Like any other brand, thats a fact. Now customer care for Taurus is absolutely the worst ever, dont believe me ask any Taurus owner. I was once one. Between parts being back ordered for months at a time and snotty service reps who are no help, sooooo.....

    Skip the Taurus. Go S&W, Ruger or Charter Arms if you want a good revolver.

    I have a tendancy to favour Taurus and Ruger.

    I have a Model 85CHSS and a Model 605B. No issues with either. Shoot good, go bang when the trigger is pulled and reasonable accuracy for snubs.

    No regrets.

    The Ruger P95 makes a great HD weapon (sorry, it isn't a revolver). Two 15 round magazines, reliable, accurate, and about $350 new. Hard to beat.

    Go for it. I have one and ever looked back

    for home defense
    Just like most handguns, it isn't good for HD. IMO, that job should be for something bigger like a shotgun.

    I wouldn't use a Taurus semi-auto for SD if one was given to me but I think they make a good serviceable revolver. Their shrouded hammer 38 snub-nosed models seem to be gaining popularity around here. That being said, the Charter Arms revolvers are in the same price range (maybe a tad higher) but are made in the USA. The Charter Arms undercover is a nice compact 38 and has a 100% solid frame (no side plate). We chose one over the Taurus when my wife was looking for a J-framed sized revolver for edc and have been pleased with it so far. She's only put 200 rounds through it but it was an easy shooting snuubie to only weigh 12oz.

    Taurus makes good, strong, dependable guns -- and you can buy a used one which carries the same lifetime warranty as new. Buy one, used, at a negotiated price and then shoot the heck out of it. If you have any concern about its reliability for SD, sell it for $20 less than you paid. My guess is that you'll like and keep the Taurus.

    Ruger and S&W have better factory trigger settings, which is important for hunting, but in SD you aren't trying to hit a paper plate at 75 yards.

    My Taurus snubby stays on a softball-sized target at 7 yards five out of five times -- that's plenty good enough for SD.

    +1. I have two Taurus revolvers and have never had any problems with them. I don't like their semi auto pistols, but their revolvers are OK.

    I won't be buying anything made by Taurus. At least for a long time. I've fired 3 Taurus revolvers, and one of them had a lot of FTF. It wasn't ammo, it was soft strikes.

    And after the stories of their customer service, I'll take my business elsewhere.

    have owned 2 taurus autos with several thousand down the pipe without a single issue...a pt111 mil pro and a pt1911...both have since been traded off and the dealer who took the 1911 off my hands commented that it didnt look like it had been shot much...both were great shooters and never failed to go bang or hit what i was aiming at...

    the biggest complaint i hear is the customer service is spotty and takes a long time...i dont have any experience with them so i cant comment on it...
