Taurus in a heartbeat. Berettas are well known for having a bad service department and their guns have always been hit or miss. Of course I won't post any proof to back up my claim but everyone knows that invoking brand names is enough to get the job done.
But seriously, get the gun you want and then make sure to go out and shoot it. Both are good guns. If you take some of these opinions too seriously you've missed the whole point of gun ownership.
New gun, same ol' shot.
