Well I fired my gun 3 times and noticed it was not jaming, but would not fire again after the 3rd shot. I looked the gun over, and found the spring slightly sticking out of the front. I was told this was the 3rd gen gun, and would come with the upgraded spring. I am pissed. I have to go to St. Louis tomorrow, and dont have any gun to carry with me. I called the store I bought it from, but it has been over 30 days, so I have to go through Taurus. This gun was shipped from the factory when I ordered it, and there is no reason for it not to have the other spring in it. I would have recommended this gun to anyone, but now am seriously thinking of buying a S&W revolver to carry. I dont know that I could truct my life to a gun that broke after 300 rounds. Not only did the spring come out, but the guide it is on broke as well. I think this part should have been steel, alum. something stronger.
