I have, do, and will always trust my life to my Taurus Pistols. Taurus makes some of the finest quality firearms on the market, and all the biased BS you hear on the internet or gun rags (which rarely mention Taurus) is just that... BS.
Has you firearms not functioned properly or given you some other reason to not trust it? Or has someone been telling you their weapon is better because of whatever reason?
Most firearms made today are of good quality and yes everyone once in awhile, someone does get a bad one, no matter what brand. And bad news always travels faster then good...
If your truely not happy with your weapon then by all means try something else.
