If the gun handles well and shoots well for you, that's the most important measure of the gun. An indoor range I used to shoot at had a number of Taurus guns on the rental shelf that had thousands of rounds through them. Taurus has been in business a long time and has really stepped up their game. Though I don't own one I've shot them. I don't like the triggers on a lot of their guns as much as other manufacturers, but I haven't had any functional problems with those I've shot.
