i give the info i have about taurus never once saying the op was trying to buy the gun for himself also i clearly stated that i am not saying all taurus guns are bad i get told i annoy the op, he must not have read all the posts clearly.no big deal my opinion is steal the same.
I have an older Taurus 92 and a Beretta about the same age.
The finish on the Taurus is wearing a little more. I inherited the Taurus fairly new and after a few hundred rounds the locking block broke. I replaced the part and years later it is flawless. The Taurus shoots better IMHO.
From what I've read the locking block is an issue on the Beretta as well.
