I too have owned both, and still have the Taurus. I have always been pleased with the Taurus pistol, though admittedly I have not run mine hard.
Back when the M9 was first adopted, and I finally got over my disgust at the pure 'ugliness' of the pistol (I don't think so anymore), I read an article by the late Chuck Karwan, in which he unreservedly endorsed the Taurus 92 as the best budget DA 9mm, period. To be sure, this was back in the early '90s. Mas Ayoob also recommends the Taurus as an excellent budget or starter pistol.
