Welcome to the Taurus forum. Glad to have you here.
As can be seen in my signature there are a lot of Taurus revolvers in the collection. 3 are the older 20+years variety and still going strong.
Word of mouth is strong evidence of a good product if it performs well. So is the case here.
As for the 24/7 there are compilations of 24/7 threads and ammo info if you so desire. Just PM me if you want them.
If you pick and gun model from any maker we rejoice with you in that pick. Just the way things go here.
Hope the 608 crowd speaks up as I am sure they will. Not a great amount of them here, but those there are have had sterling service from them.
