I think, IMHO, your statement is far more STUPID
than limbkiller's because he qualified his comment as opposed to your flat statement of "plain stupid"

The members come here for information. It's my job to make sure that this knowledge transfer reflects the FTF established knowledge base.
IN MY OPINION,
Taurus is just short of junk. When they drop to junk level, they will go out of business. The only Taurus selling point I ever hear about is their price. I think this reinforces the old saying, "You get what you pay for!"
You Taurus supporters must be exhausted. I think a more efficient use of the energy used defending them would be better spent calling/writing/emailing Taurus to clean up their reputation.
I will never own/recommend a Taurus. There are far better firearm options available to our members. I refuse to participate in a purchase lottery that may result in a failure at the moment of zero defect tolerances. (read: A PD action)
