    Pretty sure they go beyond that. There's plenty of makers with lifetime warranties, and even though not in writing some will cover non-original buyers.
    Colt, S&W, Springfield, have pretty darn good warranties.

    Besides, if we're going to play your game of justification, the only reason Taurus warranties for multiple users is that they know eventually their POS guns are going to get sold to someone else and that someone else will continue needing to get the gun fixed.


    As for makers that cover the life of the gun, there's always Hi-Point.

    You get what you pay for. Go buy a quality used gun and chances are it will be better than a new Taurus. I stick to S&W, Ruger, and Springfield. I bought my sister a new Taurus wheel gun in .22 mag. So far so good. I knew of their reputation so I planned to sell it if it didn't perform satisfactoily. But this is a target gun, not SD gun. I doubt I will ever buy another Taurus as there are plenty of used guns out there that are proven and out perform them. As for the lifetime warranty, I want a handgun that is always ready to shoot, not one that is being repaired. If you want to improve Taurus products then but other manufacturers stuff. They will either clean up their act or go away.

    thought thi thread wasnt about justification but FACTS.... guess you are right tho, taurus is a piece of shit company because they stand behind their guns FOREVER and in writing and all those other companies are good because they have warranties that they dont write down but everyone knows they are good cause they are good..... talk about justification?

    Ted, here's the thing, if a specific brand of product has a pretty well documented rate of return for repair, It's because that brand keeps breaking. They very well have the best warranty on earth...but I want a product / brand that does not have a history of having more broken guns and crappy service, if I did I'd keep buying Kimbers.

    So the gun is warrantied for life, great. How many times is acceptable for the gun to go back for repair? And if the gun itself keeps breaking, that's what I would consider a clue that maybe it's not of the greatest quality to begin with and I wouldn't give a hoot about the warranty, because I don't want to be worrying about when the next breakage is going to occur.

    Taurus has a history of shoddy guns, plain and simple and a GRRRRREAT! warranty IMHO does not make up for it.

    your underlining and larger font has swayed my way of thinking, had you used some other colors, perhaps red, i am sure i would have figured it out much sooner.

    in the spirit of selflessness i again offer to buy piece of crap taurus pistols for piece of crap prices... let me know what you have and what you want for your junk taurus guns.

    I thought about that, but I didn't want to seem overbearing. As for the prices of them, no comment.

    moved away from the philly area almost 4 years ago and relocate my immense cache of sarcasm to the pacific northwest..... luckily for you, the internet allows me to share with you, and often!

    You are a Philadelphia denizen! Very few Pennsylvanians know that Tony Luke's makes some of the best cheesesteaks in the city. (I know one of the owners of Campo's, personally. We have often eaten together and talked, 'guns' all the while.)

    Well, Here is one.

    I have a m44 44 mag, I was going to let a local gun smith do a custom trigger job on it. When he put it back together he messed up the timing on it.

    I called Taurus, They arranged to pick it up the next day, I had it back 6 days later with no cost at all to me.

    I have had great luck out of my 3 taurus firearms, I have a 24/7 pro DS in .40. a 740 slim and a m44 44 mag. To me for the price they can not be beat.

    I have owned two Taurus'. I do mean have as in no longer. I bought one awhile back when I first got into guns (can't remember the model) but it was a 9mm. It would shoot a few then jam shoot some then jam. I wasn't using it for home defense just for the fun of shooting. Well it was pretty bad for jamming not to mention the FTE, and some stove piping. I got rid of it then didn't buy any guns for awhile till I bought a Ruger. A few months ago I had a buddy of mine who needed money and asked if I knew anyone who wanted a Taurus .38 for cheap. For the price I picked it up. Carried it quiet a bit actually. I ended up getting ot shoot it quiet a bit. Most inaccurate gun ever. Within 3 maybe 4 ft it wasn't bad. Anything further and it was horrible. Even with great ammo. a couple of months later he asked me if he could buy it back. I was never so happy to get rid of something (so happy I give him the ammo and the holster just to get rid of it).

    But because of past experiences I will not buy a Kel-Tec, Bersa, Hi-Point, or Taurus. If I do it will be because I know someone who really needs money and has it for sell cheap. And even then I will clean it and put it up it will never see a round in it unless my wife wants to shoot it.
