It amazes me that no matter where you go (gun forums ) that when you mention certain gun manufactures bashers come out of the wood work. On a different forum I am a member of one came out that I just had to call out. His posting made no sense to me.
Now if you notice the way he opens up. To me I found that so funny. So in response to that claim I posted this .Not to be negative, and I'm certainly not blindly loyal to any brand, but just a word of warning to you...I've purchased 7 Taurus guns, 5 of which have required trips back to the factory. The factory always took a month or two to return, and then usually the gun wasn't fixed. What I've written is just a fact of my experience. Obviously I had no bias against Taurus or I wouldn't have bought so many of them. That said, I no longer buy Taurus. I've only had experience with one Rossi, which belonged to a friend. It broke on us one day at the range. I've not seen or experienced any problems with a variety of S&W or Ruger revolvers. Go with the Rossi if that's what you want, but don't be surprised if when it's all said and done, you've got just as much invested in the Rossi, and you're still looking for a reliable CCW revolver. I'd spend the extra $50-$100 and go with a Smith/Ruger. When you go to a shop and look at guns, most are going to appear and feel like good guns, but it's not appearances that matter. What's going to work, and work over the long run is what matters.
And of course he countered withIt amazes me that if someone has as many problems they claim to have had why would they keep buying the same brand. With that said I would not trust any advise you offer on either buying or not buying any brand.
Love the way he ended the post . So I had to counter myself .Likewise, it amazes me when someone like yourself is arrogant enough to make a comment like the quote above to an honest statement like mine. A simple answer is that the Taurus guns were what I could afford at the time, and they had some interesting guns. They also generally received good reviews at that time (things seem to have changed in recent years).
With that said, I would think that anyone who could not reason how another person might have to make a certain decision, and then has the nerve to pass judgement on the other...well that person either has the intellect of a young minded boy, or is a dim witted twit. Take your pick...maybe you're both.
I know if I were to go to a gas station and after 2 times I got water in the gas no matter how cheap the water was I would not go back. I would not go back 5 out of 7 times. Would you ?Lets see 5 bad guns out of 7 hmm looks like you have bad judgment. Even if they were what you could afford at the time. I think after 2 bad guns that were sent off to be fixed and were not then I would have given up. So I don't I am the dimwitted twit nor the intellect of a young minded boy. A mirror should be placed next to your monitor for self viewing.
