I'm coming to this late, but you forgot an option.
Never owned one, but has seen problems first hand.
The problems I have seen from others (and from others guns I've shot), and they stories they tell me are why I will never own one.
You rarely see a story about someone having to send their Glock, Sig, XD, Ruger, etc, back to the factory. But it's almost normal to see people talk about how great the Taurus Customer Service was because they had to send their gun back to the factory to fix it.
Like all things in life, you get what you paid for. If you're OK with a Taurus, more power to you. But I won't trust my life to one.
