    In my opinion, buying a Taurus is a toss of the coin. I know an approximately equal number of people who either love them or hate them. The price is right, they look good, and if you do get one that doesn't break, that's just great.

    I can only speak to my PT 1911 in .38 Super. It fires first time every time and never misses a beat. Any ammo, no problem. Quality wise it gives up nothing to my Kimber. Accuracy is more than adequate for a defence gun and my Kimber shoots only slightly better. I have no problem using it as my personal carry weapon and do so often.

    You can find love-hate relationships in any product... Automobiles, household appliances, lawn and garden equipment, etc. Some may disagree with what I'm about to say, but the only way you will ever know is to experience the product yourself. I have been on different forums over the last five years, and I have read hundreds/thousands of posts bashing a different products. I have not and will not not talk bad about any firearm you choose, it is your perogative to do as you wish. With that said, I wish you luck in your search. If you do decide on a Taurus, let us know your results. Eventually I will try a 605 and see for myself whether or not it is worth owning.

    Um, in real life, many of us are not as fortunate, or as wealthy, as you seem to be.
    We cannot just take a chance and buy a gun. The cost is too significant to permit indulging in a crap-shoot.
    (Obviously, the same is true about buying a car, only more so.)
    So when a gunmaker develops a bad reputation for his quality-control, it's a good idea to mention it. Some people just can't afford to take the chance of getting one of the duds.

    I submit that the experiences that Jean and I have had with rental cars—which we use for up to two weeks, at least twice a year—are also not fair indicators of what we should expect from an automobile that we will be keeping for longer than 10 years. (I've had mine for 25 years, as of this year.)
    Driving someone else's car for two weeks tells us something about comfort and convenience—although not everything about it. But the most important thing it does not tell us, is about durability and repairability.
    Thus the apparent need for Consumer Reports Magazine and its automotive evaluations. Thus, also, the need for owners' comments here, about their long-term experiences with Taurus guns.

    My short experience with Taurus wasn't positive. Had a revolver that didn't strike the primers hard enough and would sometimes fail to fire. I didn't keep that gun and havn't owned another Taurus. I have never liked the judge and think it is a poor design (just my opinion). My opinion by itsself wouldn't really mean anything, but it seems to be echoed by many who have had bad experiences with this gun maker. The biggest problem with Taurus seems to be quality control. So, if you happened to get a good Taurus then you probably have a good gun. If it works and you are happy then there isn't a problem. However, if you are thinking of buying a new gun, then there are better choices. Ruger is a budget gun with a great reputation.

    What is the best Taurus? What is the best Ford? What is the best Church?

    OK, you are going to get all kinds of opinions. I am not brand loyal. I have Smith and Wesson, Ruger and Taurus. They all work good and I like all of them. The Taurus PT709 is my latest acquisition. Great carry gun and shoots good. These days, I think you have a good chance to get a good working gun from Taurus. Get what you like and screw public opinion.

    Just my opinion.. not like it is the truth-

    Now, this is exactly the way to go. Thank you!
    How to make threads like this as useful as possible: Just add your own opinion, and your own experience, and let the reader make his/her own choice.

    Trying to tell someone else what's best for him, just because you happen to like it, is arrogant, fatuous, and foolish.

    What do you think of the Taurus PT-1911. Last Friday, I bought one as my first gun.

    How should I take care of it, so that it will last forever! What advice can you give me.

    My gun dealer said it was a good gun and that I will never have any problems with it.

    This Saturday will be the first time I've fired any gun.

    Good choice for a pistol. As you are a novice I would hope this Saturday shooting would be with a trained instructor so that your learned firearms habits are good from the start.

    Have fun shooting.

    Althouth Taurus is a brazilian company people here don't like to use. Normally we prefer Glock or Imbel. Particulary I have a Taurus Pistol model 639 .380. Very good gun for defense, but I not reccomend If you use for the sport. The quality is not so good.

    In my opinion The Taurus don't invest so much here because the government put a lot barrier for people buy and have a gun here.

    Love my little 85Ch revolver for a pocket gun. Also have a PT-945 which is very fun to shoot and 100% reliable.
