If I had to sell all my Tauruses, and could only keep one?
That's easy. I'm keeping the Raging Judge Magnum, no doubt.
Easy...whichever model Numrich E-gun Parts had the most parts for! It would be the one least likely to become a paperweight!
Mark Twain once said “In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.”

Oddly enough after pondering the question for a while I would have to say my Judge PD. If I could only have one "taurus" made firearm I believe it would be the one. The PT1911 is great but I can get a 1911 from a dozen different manufacturers, I could get a Beretta 92fs instead of a Taurus 92, as far as compact polymer framed 9mm or 40sw ccw guns go there is a plethora of great choices out there. The Judge however is iconic it is an instant classic. Yes S&W coppied it but the governor is not the Judge and never will be. People know the Judge, not just gun people either but also people who know nothing about guns. I cant count how many times in casual conversations with people regarding guns that non gun people (not necessarily anti-gun but instead gun ignorant folks) have asked "have you ever heard of a Taurus Judge?". "It's a handgun that shoots shotgun shells". Like I said it is iconic. So as much as I love all Taurus products, if I could only keep one of my Taurus pistols in my collection it would be the judge.
Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man gainst his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American...[T]he unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people....Tench Coxe
In another thread, the question was, if you could only have one handgun, I answered, a good six inch .357 magnum revolver. Since my two favorite Tauri are my PT145, and PT1911, if I could only keep one Taurus, it would have to be this one.
All you need for happiness is a good gun, a good horse, and a good wife.
Texas friendly, spoken here.
For me, it's my PT1911SS

I only have 1 handgun and it is not a Taurus.
So if I am allowed to play, I would keep my Glock Gen2 G-21.
