Hey man, I really like my Taurus 94. I heard that their auto models arn't the best, but the revolvers are pretty good. I have nothing against Taurus, every company has its lemons, maybe some more than others. Thats why I would stay away from those compaines when picking a SD carry gun. But for plinking/fun at the range, why not.
My Taurus POS is a revolver.
If you have a Taurus and like it, that's great. I'm happy for you. Even Trabant probably accidentally made a few good cars. (you should probably buy a lottery ticket before your luck runs out)
