I did what i felt was the right thing to do. Im done with taurus. I just picked up my Sig gun today 226 -45-- I have the 226x5 L1 9x19 on order.
WOW - what a gun ! I havent shot it yet. Im still reading and took it apart 2 times. I found my maker -the hard way !!!!
That's how it happens sometimes... You should be very content with the Sig.. Good quality all around. Only other Taurus I own is a tracker in .117. but you can bet I'll not be buying anymore from them.

I currently own four Taurus firearms ~ Model 85 SS 3" bbl purchased 1984, Model 66 SS 4" bbl purchased 1984, Model 94 SS 4" bbl purchased 2009, and Model PT1911 SS 5" bbl purchased 2010.

I practise every three weeks, swapping off fireams two at a time. I have had zero problems with any of the 4 weapons. I will continue to purchase Taurus firearms in the future.

I've seen guns blown up from every manufacturer out there. Glocks blow up on a regular basis why don't glocks suck?

Well, It all makes for good reading and education. Each shooting will have to decide for themselves.
As for my decision, after reading posting, I have made mine.
