simple fact is you are trying to make them out to be cheaply made pistols that will fall apart or blow up in your hand. they are not cheaply made pistols and are for the most part, pretty well made.
BTW, clink on the link that i provided earlier. Smith & Wesson at one time owned 54% of the Taurus company and many of Taurus's revolver designs were copied from S&W. they also bought the Brazilian division of Beretta and made a dang near copy of the Beretta 92F.
many South American police agencies have used Taurus pistols for years.
no they are not Smith & Wesson quality, but they are hardly junk either. you are more than welcome to your opinions, but i feel you are on the wrong path here. you comments equate to someone having owned one Ford vehicle in their life, having a problem and then stating all Fords are junk. it doesn't negate the fact that the Ford had a problem, but still doesn't reinforce the statement all Fords are junk either.
i have owned several Taurus pistols over the years, along with S&W, Colt, Astra, and some others.
