Bill, that is a very dangerous question. Be prepared to be bombarded with "Taurus sucks" postings from those who like to bash Taurus. I own two Taurus handguns, and find them to be well made and reliable. Taurus, as with any manufacturer, sometimes puts out a lemon. So does S&W, Glock, Springfield, etc.
