its a 50/50 proposition really when it comes to bashing taurus and any other company in truth.
half the people who buy a gun, and find that it has some issues will admit "yeah it happens" and simply get it fixed and go about their business.
half will say "#@*&, the finish aint perfect," and go on a rampage on forums.
the price point is also an issue.
most complaints ive seen on the sw forum, about sw products, are always handled like "yeah, ya shoulda known your not supposed to use X loads or youll shoot it loose in 3 shots", but when the same applies to a taurus its a horrid catastrophy.
its kinda like bycotting a toilet paper company because it bled through, but only cost .000000001 cent per sheet.
