Default Taurus or XD

I just got my CCL and am using that as a reason to purchase a new handgun. I have a couple of nice compact revolvers that I use as a carry weapon, but I want to move to a semi. I have decided on either the Taurus millenium pro .40, or the XD Sub Compact .40 I am really leaning toward the XD. I would appreciate any comments on either. Thanks.

XD, the Taurus isn't even on the same page. With a Taurus it's a crapshoot whether you get a good one or a bad one. Spend some time with Google and you'll see what I mean...

Or just look at your local gun shop's used counter. How many Tauruses do you see in that case compared to XD's?

I would have to concur, the XD is a better pistol and it has MANY, MANY fans that swear by it.

The Taurus seems to be hot and cold. When someone likes them, they really like them, but when they don't, they hate them.

Taurus guns themselves are hot & cold which is a shame. They make some neat stuff, I checked out their LCP clone and it had a great trigger and looked very well made. I'd never buy a Taurii again though as I've gotten a lemon and once is enough to teach me a lesson...
