He did eventually allow the relative to bring his G2 (I guess the instructor needed the money ) but warned him he would not get a refund when (not if) it broke during the approx 400 round training session. Ammo wasn't an issue because the students could bring their own. Then when the G2 did not break or jam during the class, the instructor still refused to admit that he was wrong, claiming that particular G2 was merely an anomoly.
    Well, if I wanted to take a class, I'd just pass on these idiots. If he's that danged stupid, what could he teach ME, anyway? Heck, I'd probably need to teach HIM and I'm sure he's a hard headed know it all.

    “Violent crime is feasible only when it’s victims are cowards. A victim who fights back makes the whole business impractical. - Col Jeff Cooper

    With over 200 million firearms in private possession, in addition to a collective ammo round count of over a trillion rounds, it should be obvious that we in the firearm community and culture are NOT the problem!

    Governments don’t create human rights; they either recognize them or suppress them

    If someone buys a gun and likes the looks, feel, smell, color or whatever why should I care if they are happy with it? It's not mine, I don't have to use it! I'm not going to judge them on their purchase or repeatedly tell them what they bought is junk and they should have bought something that I liked. They bought it and they like it so God Bless them. After passage of time they might find something else they like much better.

    But what do I know? This form someone who spent the 70's driving around in at least 5 different AMC Gremlins a AMC Hornet and an AMC Matador. Wanted an AMX but couldn't find one I could afford.

    If you don't want or use them anymore why not sell them so someone else can enjoy them?
    I hold on to them to remind me to do my research before buying any more guns, and to remind me of just what Taurus has done to many of us that have now discontinued models like the model 85.

    I bought these because of their price, the reports that Taurus "was turning around" according to the then CEO, and the fact they had a "lifetime warranty". Fast forward to today, and they are now discontinued, and on a 5 year plan that afterward, Taurus will neither carry parts nor repair said firearms. Thanks, Taurus.

    You mention Gander Mountain having a rifle for a year and a gunsmith that had two pistols for 10 months. Would not happen to me. I would have been on both for status reports, just like I was on Taurus, and after a certain time I would have taken the firearm elsewhere. Sorry, I have NEVER put up with poor service. And that is what I received, IMHO, from Taurus. When another major gun manufacturer can send you mailing label AND PAY for postage, and have that firearm back to you within two weeks, repaired to better than new, then why can't Taurus? I have NEVER received a good answer to that question, other than a constant "lack of staff" or "lack of parts" answer.

    As for selling them, they are on the trade or sell list the next time I think I need another firearm. But at the present, I have what I need. I just might try to sell them, but I know I will not get a good price for them. Another Taurus quirk: resale value is poor, at best.

    Nope, I learned my lesson about Taurus, and will continue to look at other brands to satisfy my firearm needs.

    The theory that a "big bang" from a handgun, along with a perpetrator receiving a gunshot wound, is the best way to end violent personal or property crimes.

    I think part of the reason other major manufacturers have a quicker turnaround is because they charge a lot more than Taurus for a similar product. It's like with cars, customers expect better service when they buy a Lexus, BMW, etc. than when they buy a Chevrolet, Ford, Kia or other moderately priced vehicle. It works the same with resale.

    I trust my life to me.
    Doesn't matter what I am carrying.
    I make sure all my pistols are working properly and cared for.
    If I'm not ready and prepared it doesn't matter what I am carrying.
    As far as my Taurus is concerned it is around 20 years old.
    It has several thousand rounds through it and has not had a malfunction of any kind.
    So I trust it to function when I need it.
    Why would I carry a pistol I can't rely on?
    I know several makes of firearms I wouldn't touch if given to me.
    I bought one that was a total piece of garbage. Two attempts by the factory to fix it and no luck.
    But bashing guns I don't like is not productive.
    Suffice it to say they finally kept it.

    Yeah, sell 'em. The beauty of Taurus is, if I have to send one in, I can afford to replace it while I wait. Sometimes I buy them in pairs. You never know!

    Simple answer. If it has been proven dependable YES.

    Any explanation why gun manufacturers can't be consistent with quality? My sccy cpx2 has run 100 rounds without problem. I read others calling them junk with constant jams and misfeeds. I'm carrying a Beretta. Glock fan boy told me my trigger was better than a factory Glock trigger.
