I've owned four Taurus revolvers. Only one did I shoot extensivly, but that one a Model 82? (Fixed sight, 4" barrel, 38, more or less a Model 10 copy). That one I shot quite a bit, mostly using wadcutter loads. Other than ugly grips, I had nothing to grip about.
The other three, a Model 66, an 85, and a 94, I didn't really shoot a lot, but never had any trouble with, but I traded/sold them all off for something else. Now, to be fair, I have also traded off a number of Smith & Wesson, Colt, and Ruger revolvers. I just buy, sell and trade a lot.
No, I don't think they're "just as good" as the big three, but I don't think they're bad either.
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
