It's a shame that Taurus "traps" so many folks with their low price and impressive advertising. I'd love to see one of the gun magazines do a real test. Say buy 10 each of the most popular low-priced models and test them thoroughly. You couldn't contact Taurus for the test guns as they'd ensure only good ones were provided. I mean off the shelf guns from the local gun stores. Based on what I've seen, heard & experienced - I'd bet at least 10% of off the shelf guns would have problems.
It's a shame no gun magazine will ever do this and I understand why - look at any of them and they are full of impressive Taurus full-page ads...
Ruger does the same thing...I've owned three Ruger's, and they were all total junk.
Big advertising, big aftermarket...big problems.
This is why I've got Calico Pistols now, higher capacity (100 rounds) & less headaches.
I am prepared for any zombie attacks
We do own one Taurus 24/7C in 9mm (compact), thusfar it's given zero problems after getting one bad magazine replaced.
It's the wifey's CCW pistol. I carry a Glock 20 in 10mm
Used to own a Taurus model 66 revolver in .357...tough rascal, but I sold it when I needed cash back in the 90's.
Wouldn't mind having another one. I can't fault those wheelguns at all.
