    taurus doesnt get enough recognition

    I jumped head first into firearms about 10 months ago. After getting married I decided I needed to be able to protect my family from any and all threats. I've shot and owned guns before but its been years since that dreaded day my rent was stolen and I had to sell my collection! Anyway I'm a internet geek and a chronic researcher, which imo makes gun buying that much more fun. The problem was Taurus was never much of a topic in my searches and led me to purchase other guns, which in my opinion cost more and gave me less! First off I bought a kel tec pf9 for that "slim 9mm" to carry. Then I bought an lcp for my pocket. Well I hated the lcp, that trigger would have ended up giving me early arthritis in my finger and it was annoying to shoot on top of that! So through a series of trades I ended up with a Taurus m605 and it was love! Finally I've now handled a Taurus which led me to look at Taurus more often! I've since traded everything else and now I have a TCP .380 and the m605 and couldn't be happier with my guns. The TCP is FAR superior to the lcp and p3at and actually feels like a gun! My next purchase is a 709 slim.

    Pointless story I know but I wanted to share my story with anyone considering a Taurus who might be a little sceptical. Don't listen to the geek behind the counter, Taurus is a major competitor and in most cases offers MORE for LESS! Let's also not forget that if you do get that dreaded lemon, that EVERY gun manufacturer can produce, Taurus will repair it, for FREE! I'm a Taurus fanboy and I hope other people give them a shot too. I'm tired of reading peoples silly comments about how a friend had a fte so Taurus sucks and blah blah. Try it for yourself. Guns aren't dangerous purchases financially, I've always traded UP on all my purchases.

    I will agree with you, the Taurus is a very under rated unappreciated firearm. However, I for one always liked the Taurus line. Over the last year plus I started culling out my collection of firearms. Now please understand that to cull is to remove the unwanted or undesirable of a group. A few of the guns I culled out were all of my Glocks, Springfield Armory XDs, a number of Ruger P series, Colt .375 stainless King Cobra as well as others. I do still have a few off brand pistols (Walther, Sig, Colt defender, Beretta), but I do keep adding more Taurus to my collection. And why not, they are great guns at value prices.
    As for being a financial investment...better than money in the bank. If the dollar were to do a total collapse, I would rather have a safe full of guns than worthless paper money to protect my family and belongings..

    I've had a few FTE, but IMO ANY pistol will once in a while.
    I think it's 3 out of about 1000 rounds on my 24/7 Pro LS DS 9mm.
    And I really shouldn't count the first 2 as the gun was not yet broken in and would only work every time with 124gr.
    Now it works every time except for 1 time a couple days ago.
    Maybe my grip was wrong or something, but it tried to feed a round before the spent case was ejected and jammed.
    I dropped the mag and racked the slide and all was OK.

    My "Taurus Rescue" service has been open for years.

    I hear a lot of oftly repeated BS from Taurus nay sayers.

    But none of which will take up my offer to "Rescue" their pesky Taurus.

    They are well kept (or maybe not so) secret amongst "us girls"...

    I first got into firearms back in the early 90's and I really appreciated the fact that you could (and still can today) buy a Taurus gun for sometimes many hundreds of dollars less than a comparable gun from another maker (S&W). I didn't and still don't have a bunch of money to throw around, and having a company that makes a darned good product that you can trust your life with is a big deal to me.

    It's funny how for all their use in movies and television how rare it is that people recognize them. I know "Dirty Harry" is or at least should be a piece of Americana at this point, but everyone gets that Smith and Wesson .44 Magnum was the big gun, but nobody I question ever knows about the Taurus guns they see on the screen.
