I used to own a Taurus revolver, the model 608 in .357 Magnum. It worked flawlessly, and you have to like the extra rounds in the cylinder.
I did not like the porting holes on each side of the front sight, but that's just personal preference. It is a very large heavy gun, and I sold it off to finance buying a Marlin Cowboy lever gun in .357 a number of years ago.
I would buy another Taurus revolver based on that experience, but I've never seen a Taurus semi-auto that grabbed my interest.
I've heard good things about their 1911, but haven't seen one in person.
