I have owned 2 M85 revolvers. One was fine when I sold it. The other misfired several times per box. I sent it back at least three times, sent it to a revolver specialist, and after over a year I finally got a new one from Taurus. I promptly sold it without ever taking it out of the box.
So the failure rate of guns is 50% for me. Need I say any more why I would not own one?
The additional cost of a S&W (I have four) is well worth it to me.
Ecclesiastes 12:13 *¶Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
14 *For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.
