I have owned 5 taurus handguns; 3 of them were totally unreliable and required multiple trips back to the not so happy taurus hollow tree in miami. I won't own another. That aside, if the gun is legal by federal standards I can't see how your local lawdogs would be opposed to it. Unless of course you live in Jersey, Nazichussetts, or New York... or Illinois, or Hawaii. Then you might be boned.
