If I based my purchases on TFL postings I would not buy Taurus. I would also not buy Glock, Springfield, S&W, Ruger, Remington, Kahr, Kimber, Colt, or anything else but maybe Wilson Combat, Ed Brown, or Browning and I would be cautious about any of those three. However, I talk to real owners that I know and I have only found one live person who said he had problems with Taurus. I never saw the gun and he wasn't specific about his problem with the gun he had. I have never had any functional problems with any of the five I have owned. I probably won't buy anymore due to the low resale value they hold unless I find one I feel certain is a keeper at a good price.
No, I don't bash Taurus.
This is my gun. There are many like her, but this one is mine.
I'm not old. I'm CLASSIC!
