Taurus advertises very aggressively, so people buy their stuff. That does not mean their stuff is good. Similarly, just because Kimber buys the front and back cover ads in every magazine for the Ultra Carry doesn't mean a 3" 1911 is an ideal carry option.
I'm not claiming that they're automatically bad for that, but they certainly aren't good because they're on a lot of gun counters. Gun shop owners will carry what sells, period.
