    I own and carry a Taurus revolver. 2000 rounds without an issue to date. I like them but they admittedly have less that can go wrong with them. I don't believe I will ever buy a Taurus pistol. Just heard too many stories.
    Best Regards from Minnesota,

    Rick

    Talking Taurus Yay or Nay

    I have Ruger, S&W, and Taurus and all work well. The Taurus 709 Slim auto has about 500 round thru it without any problem. The Judge works well with no problems. I carry a S&W M&P, but have carried the 709 in dress up close becquse it is so slim.

    I'm good with the Taurus revolver; are they in the same class as the S&W? I'd say no, not IMB.

    I have both sw 638 and taurus 851 protector. I like them both. the 851 was my first snubbie. never had any problems with it. I am afraid to try their semiautos though. In my research, I found that people were pretty happy in general with their taurus snubbies.

    MY opinion!

    Guns are like condoms, toilet paper, and shoes. Do NOT buy cheap ones. For the price of a new Taurus you could have a really nice used S&W revolver. If you are going to trust your most precious thing to a tool, why would you want an inferior tool that has a documented history of failure and sub standard quality? That is not saying that good weapons cannot be had for reasonable prices. My S&W 10-10 was 200$ and was found in a bargain bin (literally it was a BIN of 38 revolvers traded in from a security company at a show, you reached in and fished out a winner) Learn how to inspect a used smith, (there are documents on the google) and go to a gun show/pawn shop/large gun dealer/buddies house/estate sale and grab one

    Had a PT140 that never had a problem, trigger was horrible but it always went bang.

    Na on the Tarus. My mom has a 357 and the finish is peeling off. Taurus said that is an acceptable occurance. I guess she has is lucky because it still works.
