I know I'll get flamed... But man... I'd skip Taurus. Do a search for Taurus on various gun sites - especially Taurus customer service over the past 12 months .
I've seen some horror stories that go one for months with regular updates from the poor victims of a Taurus purchase. I've seen multiple people tell very similar stories. I've read enough over the past year from enough people to know I would skip Taurus even if they sold the best gun on the planet. And, all the dozens of pro-Taurus guys who will jump out of the woodwork following this post will not change my mind.
When ya treat some people that crappy - I'll take my business elsewhere...
Now, I have shot the 45 XD recently. I had zero interest in XDs for years now. But, that gun impressed me. I want one now.
