I based most of my response on this quote from the OP's post. Personally, I have little faith in Taurus products. I've owned 2 of the Bersa's and they are reliable and accurate guns - they make a nice backup.

Lots of opinions in this post. If nobody needs more than 5 shots, I doubt we'd need all the high capacity semi-autos currently being sold and carried. As far as most gun fights being a couple of shots - can't say as I've never been in one. I do know I'd rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it...

that is a really good comparison robocop, it really sums it up. Taurus i think is just cheaper copycats of better guns also.

I'd keep the .357. >380 is way too expensive for what it is and I have no confidence in it. Robo summed the comparison up nicely.

Spittinfire also mentioned bianchi speed strips, much easier to carry than speedloaders.

I'll throw my 2cents in and recommend that you hold off on any purchase or trade in that realm and save up some cash for a "permanent" gun. . .

Go for something that you'll have (or could have) forever and be damn proud to show off and feel warm and fuzzy when you put it on in the morning.
