I have to admit the Taurus post's are guaranteed to liven up the Forums. I bought a number of Taurus guns prior to 1990 and have not had problem one with any of them yet. Revolver's and Semi-Autos. Skip the whole interim between then and 2019 when I bought a TX22. Yes, almost thirty years when Taurus produced some really bad guns and worse Customer Service. Now I have three Taurus gun's of recent manufacture that have had no problems whatsoever. So I have to say my purchases from Taurus have always been positive. I can truly say I have never had a problem with Taurus guns for fortyyears.
