Until recently, I had never even held a Taurus handgun. I learned to shoot, courtesy of my Dad, 51 years ago. During those early years, the gun was a German made single action .22 revolver. A little later we shot Smith & Wesson and Colt revolvers in .38 Special. Over time, I've owned a variety of S&W and Colt revolvers in many calibers.
Since I've always had a "soft spot" for the .44 Special, I began shopping for a revolver in that caliber a couple of months ago. My local gun shop didn't have any Smiths, so I looked at a Taurus .44 Magnum Tracker.
This revolver's action is tight, the single and double-action trigger pulls are outstanding, and the accuracy is excellent. Although I have quite a bit of .44 Magnum ammunition, it's doubtful this gun will ever fire those, as it is just too hard on my wrists and hands. But .44 Specials are a joy to shoot!
I don't anticipate buying any more Taurus handguns, but the one I do own is very, very nice.
