Same as mine, sent back to Taurus, back again and had 3 FTE out of 100 rounds. Exactly as you described, dangerous to safe a loaded gun with fingers inside. When weather clears am taking out again with WWB and Rem. Have tried American, Blazer brass and steel and Monarch. You need to send that weapon back, my opinon, and if mine fails again in next 100 rounds it's going back again. I own 4 other Taurus weapons, this is disappointing.
