The bad reputation Taurus used to have still resonates with those that have had bad experiences with Taurus, and those that have read about the bad experiences. Taurus has come a long way. I bought a PT-1911 a couple of months ago and have over 700 rounds thru it with no issues. Wasn’t my first choice, but the LGS (Small store) keeps them in stock and the price was right, so I decided to give it a shot. I have not been disappointed.
Look for hickock45 on YouTube. He is very well respected for his views and has at least 3 videos on a Taurus revolver.
