Default taurus or ruger?

a friend offered me the ruger p97 dc (i think its dc) for 200 dollars. im pretty sure thats a great price, but is it a good gun? i have read many mixed reviews, and have yet to shoot it, but i am interested.

i have fired the taurus 24/7 pro .45, and i found it to be a pretty awesome gun, especially for the price. any thoughts on this gun?

which one would you choose?

I would take that Ruger in a heartbeat, especially over the Taurus.

Seems like an easy choice...The Ruger for the win, at that price you are ahead easily.

I have owned the Ruger P95 and P94DC and loved them both as they were flawless. Taurus for the most part IMHO are crappy. Thats just me. Have heard nothing but complaints mainly about the craftsmanship.

Ruger hands down.

What Taurus? If it was a PT1911 I'll take that over most any Ruger. Taurus does make some pretty good wheel guns but that 1911 is one of the best in it's price range.

I like Ruger. But I like to shoot my guns instead of waiting to have them returned from the factory for repairs. I have had 2 Taurus'. Both were bad.

If it was me, I'd grab the Ruger...
but since you're only asking me I'll say "go for the Ruger!!".

Easy choice at that price. My dad has a P95 with no issues... I mean I wouldn't carry it for defense but cool for range.

appreciate the input guys. And the taurus is the 24/7 pro .45 for whoever wanted to know.
