    My primary weapon is my brain, and that's what I trust my life to. I used a Taurus revolver as my family defense gun for years, and I ain't dead yet. My question is, since more people die in fires than from crime, how many of us have working fire extinguishers and a fire escape plan?

    Come on, you're telling me that Browning has never failed to fire? I've never had a rimfire that wouldn't fail to fire now and then. It ain't the gun, it's the rimfire ammo.

    I guess I’m missing your point or you missed mine. I didn’t say that my Browning .22 target pistol never failed to fire or have a FTF or FTE. Yes, in the thirty years that I have owned it, there were failures and yes, it turned out to be the ammo. My point was that all my handguns and long guns, for that matter, must function perfectly. If there’s a problem and I can’t fix it or get it fixed, I get rid of it.
    I have no “only for range use” guns. The OP asked if we all trust our Taurus handguns with our life and I answered yes. Where we
    live, walking down our drive without a gun could be dangerous, considering all the four legged predators about. So, while doing my ranch chores, my Taurus 415 is on my hip; being titanium, it’s fairly light considering it’s size and caliber, it’s the perfect tool. I thought being a Taurus forum and all, you might appreciate that.

    ...are fire extinguishers even still legal? I sorta' figured that by now......ownin' a fire extinguisher would be considered microaggression toward fires and prob'ly classified as a hate crime.

    I think it's a fair question, given the nature of some of the commentary on gun forums. Yes, I would (and have) trusted my life to Taurus firearms...and to far far lesser quality guns, as well (of which there are many.)

    Guns can be separated into two main categories: working and non-working. A non-working S&W isn't any better than a non-working Taurus.

    I really have an issue with posting a list, but in this case I will make an exception,
    Keep in mind I am a smith, and my guns are taken care of very well, and thoroughly checked before fired.

    3 PT22's
    1 PT25
    3 Rough Riders
    1 Md992
    1 Curve
    1 Spectrum
    1 PT111 G2
    1 PT92 AF
    1 PT1911
    1 PT24/7 G2 .45
    2 Md605's One is a Custom Shop/other went through the last Hurricane in Florida and was in bad shape, but aside from pitting runs great.
    1 Md66
    1 Md 689
    1 Rossi 721
    1 Public Defender
    1 Raging Bull .454
    1 Rossi Puma lever gun .357
    1 Tracker .44 mag/ soon too be 2.....................
    I might be missing 1 or 2 but if any of them didn't do their job, they would not be with me, have other guns also but
    I trust every last one of them, and they do get shot often. Only ones that are a "problem" are the PT22's, and after 5 or 7 mags through them they need a lite cleaning.
    You and only you can decide if you trust your firearm, I have fixed MANY different brands,and I don't bad mouth any manufacturer, if it runs it runs, period!
    Everyone has an opinion, and that is all it is.....................

    Mine have always been ultra reliable. My second gen PT 145 had a light strike on a couple of steel cased Russian made rounds, but other than that, has never had a failure with Brass Cased ammo, no matter how cheap.

    No failures at all with the others I have. Trust for a gun builds after shooting it a while with no problems.
