To begin with, I have Colts, Smiths and Rugers. Semi's and revolvers. About 6 months ago I bought a Taurus 856 and I absolutely love that gun. I even keep it out as my go-to-gun. I trust that 856 100%! I just recently bought a PT-22 to keep in the car. I keep it loaded with 9 rds. of Stinger HP's. Those Stingers will definitely get someone's attention if I ever had to use it for self-defense. Love my Taurus handguns! How about the rest of you all?

It's been a long time since I lurked or posted on here. First time back and I see this and I just have to comment.

I've owned one of just about every brand around anymore. I have no real brand loyalty. The only brand I've come back to 3 times or more is Taurus. They really do make a quality gun at an affordable price. I've never had an issue with any of mine and I trust them all with my life as I have carried them all at least once.

Also, welcome to the greatest forum full of the best enablers around :D

I have nothing but Taurus semi-auto's and revolvers right now, along with one crappy Ruger LCP.
I don't know about "love them" but I enjoy shooting them all. Should the occasion arise I feel confident that any one of them would perform as well as any other handgun in a self defense situation.

I have never had a problem with any Taurus firearm, actually I have a m66 from the mid 70s that I shot so much that Taurus put a new barrel on last year.

The only problems I've had with mine so far have been solved with a thorough cleaning. I'm working over a new PT22 now that has some problems, but we'll see if I can ever get back to the range. That being said, I really don't trust any thing or any one (earthly, that is) with a few exceptions such as wife, kids, and best friend.

By the way, that's an interesting moniker. I'm assuming you're either in to music or the same named son of a junior.

I have a PT145MilPro as one of my 3 carry guns. I also have a 24/7DS in 9mm, and 2 94's in .22. I've had no problems with any of them. I have north of 3000 rounds of various ammo through the PT, less through the 24/7. The 94's are club guns and probably have between 6 and 8 thousand rounds through both. Good guns.

My 605. 856, PT111 G2 and Spectrum have never had an issue of any kind and I have confidence in all of them. My TCP had a minor issue when new( 4 1/2 years ago) but I had confidence in it until the trigger stopped working a couple of weeks ago (it is now awaiting repair in Miami). The TCP has always been less confidence inspiring than my other handguns and I don't know why.

Not as much as I used to.

Both of my 85's have gotten out of time; one has taken the "vacation" in Miami, and I have lost some trust in it, not to mention the repair work was satisfactory, at best. The other 85 is now getting out of time, and will need to go back for repair soon. Someone told me it is from shooting a steady diet of +p ,38 special rounds in both of them, and not doing the "sparingly" thing with them. Each had about 10,000 rounds through them when they started to get loose,

Ever since I found the timing going out on them, my trust of Taurus building a quality revolver for the price has gone down. That may be why another brand name in revolvers is more popular in my gun safe.

At present I'm down to four Taurus庐 revolvers; 992B4 22LR/22Mag, 425SS4CP 41 Remington庐 Magnum, 605SS2 357 Mag, and 85SS2UL 38 Special. I trust all 100%.

I trust Tuarus revolvers enough to give them as gifts to loved ones. My daily carry- which is on my hip as I type this in the coffee shop- is a Rossi 720 that I've had for over 20 years.

I trust Taurus guns more than the HK I own.

My M-85UL I trust with my life. I had a PT145 that I trusted about as much as I do the Democratic party, it failed to go bang fairly regularly as it would shave off metal from the primers and they would sometimes lodge into the striker channel causing the malfunction.
