I tell everyone that asks to avoid taurus. I base this on the fact that I know at least a dozen people that have purchased them only to experience problems and get screwed over by the not so "free" warranty that requires expensive shipping. This list of negatives is longer so if you are a taurus fan you might want to stop here.
They are cheap and tacky
they are very low quality
they are marketing gimmicks that appeal to old men ie the judge
Honestly no one would pay a S&W or Ruger price for a Taurus and there is a reason for that. They are not as good!
