    Friend wants to buy a 40 cal Taurus. Not sure if these r a good handgun. If any body has any info please let me know. I recomended to him either the glock or the springfield xd. It's for home defense.

    I don't have any of those so no personal experience. But, just from what I've read by owners & shopping/handling pistols, while researching, I'd have to vote for the Springfield. That is mostly from what I have learned about their stellar customer service.

    I own a Taurus 617 and have never had a problem with it. I do know that they have a life time warranty on their products.

    I'd price them vs Ruger and S&W, and Colt, all other things being equal, I'd

    get the other brands.

    Of course, many LGS and pawn shops near me charge as insane prices for

    crap as they do for real guns, so YMMV...

    I really think that should be a .gif with the horse crapping itself at the end or maybe with each "whack".

    Taurus quality comes up frequently. It is most frequently argued by guys whose third cousin twice removed had a bad time with a used Taurus semi-auto, possibly due in part to some uberhot reloaded ammo from the local ninja loader.

    My nephew and BIL have taurus revolvers and like them and have had no trouble with them. A couple of my buddies have had Taurus PT92's that were really nice. Taurus quality takes a beating on the interwebs; that said, i prefer Ruger for my revolvers.

    Taurus is never my first choice when purchasing a firearm. But I am not against them. I have a .357 revolver and a pt111 millennium pro. Never had any issues with either one. The only "bad" ive ever heard of them is customer service. Like I said though, ive never had an issue with either weapon that required contacting CS.

    Unless it's a thread on a brand new gun...almost every gun thread anywhere is a rehash of something that's been posted ad nauseum.

    No that's not what I'm getting. I own a sprinfield. Did it maybe occur to u hossfly that its exactly what it says it is. That my friend wants the Taurus. I'm not a Taurus fan at all. My buddy is so I'm getting feed back from other gun fanatics so he can read this and hopefully change his mind. If it was gonna be for me I'd flat out say. I want to buy a Taurus. Why would I play games like that. Might be something u would do but I'm a little to old to play the my friend wants to buy this game. Seriously. People like u annoy me.
