They are a fine gun....I would put Taurus on par with NEW production S&W...IMHO they don't hold a candle to OLD S&W or Colts....But for shooting and on a budget? They are perfectly fine....I would buy one over a charter arms even. Fit and finish is superior. I have a model 85 that puts them in the same hole at 7 yards.....Plus they have a LIFETIME warranty......try that with a Colt.
Buy it....Shoot it...Repeat.
