I am not a Taurus fan. I can say that knowing that I have 2 Tauruses in my home. The first is a Judge (3 inch chamber and barrel) and the other is a 380 pocket gun. They both belong to the wife. The Judge had to go back to the factory 3 times to get it to work in single action (the hammer would not lock back and when you pulled it back by hand it would set off the round because it did not lock in the cocked position.
the 380 was not as bad. It works ok but occasionally fails to ignite the rounds. My wife still owns it but she up graded to a sig P238.
Shot placement is everything! I would rather take a round of 50BMG to the foot than a 22short to the base of the skull.
all 23 of my guns are 45/70 govt 357 mag, 22 or 12 ga... I believe in keeping it simple
