I owned both without any problems. Taurus' are machined a bit better though. Either brand back in the 60's and 70's was worth the time of day ! I'd save up and get a Ruger or Smith. If you really have to have that movie gun S&W model 29 or 27, save you dollars.
If it don't matter and you want a strong revolver that you could shoot the holy hell out of, get a Ruger !
