    S & W is nice but overpriced. Taurus is nice and priced right. Both have had their issues but both are good guns. I prefer the Large frame Taurus to the mid size Trackers.

    Those who buy a taurus buy it because it is cheaper or at least that is why I bought one. I soon sold it. It didn't have that solid feel to it. Now, I wait until I have the money for a S&W or Ruger when it comes to revolvers.

    If money was not an issue I would go with a S&W.

    If you are just looking for something to use a few times a year I would go with a Taurus. I own the Taurus's, two are revolvers. So far no problems.

    Get the smith, take care of it, and leave it to your grandkids. Enough said...

    I have a Taurus 617CH in polished SS. I've never had any trouble with it.

    I'm sorry but that guy was just too calm. I've shot doe years and if that happened to me I'd do more than calmly show it to the camera guy.

    I'm not saying everyone needs to run out and get a Taurus revolver but that video looked staged to me.

    I'm in the process of falling in love with the Smith 686 + I just got. I've never owned a Taurus, but I hear nightmare stories about customer service. I'd get the Smith or the Ruger.
