The choice is up to you to make on your own. Get something you fill comfortable with. And something you have consistent accuracy with. I can say I don't care Taurus much. They are crap in my opinion. Bit that's just me. I have seen one brand new with a twisted barrel. But I'm sure not all of them are bad. Plus like I said that's just my opinion.
I do recommend you get something that is not to big. I dont know what anybody says. "I'm a big guy so I can carry my big hand cannon with no problem" I can tell you from experience. I bought in to this. I got a XD .45 sm for CC. I thought "hey I'm 6'2" 220 I can hide that very well. I was right I can hide it good but it is about as comfortable as sleeping on a dog house. And it with 2 extra mags fills like carrying a ruck sack in Nam.
