My opinion, for what its worth, is the Taurus 92 series (Beretta Clones) and their revolvers are fine weapons. I wouldn't touch anything else they make. Their customer service is terrible and they just seem to make way too many lemons to take the risk of having to deal with them.
Where are the other options?
-"Owned, but dropped that crap like a bad habit"
-"Still own, but only because I can't sell it"
I had to laugh at this one. I still own a PT22 that has been back to Taurus twice before I just gave up on it. It sits in the safe because I couldn't sell it in good faith and I hate to just throw it away. The fact Taurus even sold that piece of crap told me enough about the company that I have never bought another Taurus.
