I'll offer a personal opinion here.
To be honest, the Beretta and any Taurus are in two different leagues if you ask me. Now don't get me wrong; I have a Taurus TCP, it's been a truly phenomenal gun and I love it, but over-all a Taurus is just NOT a Beretta, or a Glock, or a S&W, or a Sig, or an H&K etc. You pay less because you get less.
But that being said, there are a good number of guys and gals that have a Taurus and they love it. I like my TCP enough that I will eventually try another model of Taurus just because I want to.
