You said it. . . to each their own. I know many folks love Taurus and back them up with their experience. . .
This obligates me to also share my own experience as well as advice.
When I hold a Taurus, I'm just holding another functional, but imported gun with little character/uniqueness.
When I hold a Smith or Ruger, I can feel the rigidity, craftsmanship and quality, that only innovative engineers and talented working Americans can produce.
I know there is always room for human error, but statistics speak for themselves.
Regardless, I respect everyone's opinions and experience as well.
