Among the few Semi-Autos I have is a millenium Pro 45 I have put about 1000 rounds through mine with no problems. There are some who have real lemons however mine has been worry free. One feature I like over the Glock is the Taurus has a second strike option. In most cases if you have a missfire a second strike with the firing pin will work and it is a lot faster to pull the trigger again than do the Tap Rack Drill.
I agree, the second strike feature on many Taurus pistols including the MilPro series, the 24/7 Pro DS & 24/7 Pro C DS series and the new G2 series is the thing I love to have. Many times I had light primer strikes on some ammo and the 2nd strike's always went "bang".
