I had intentions of sending the gun to Taurus and allowing them to fix it, and this was the basis for my original post. As I needed guidance as to what I should do. After discussing the issue with my dealer, he suggested I return the gun to him and he would send it to Taurus as a defective firearm. Due to the multiple issues I had with the gun I decided to wash my hands of it and try something new. This was the basis for my reply regarding me returning the firearm.
BTW, I would never sell or pawn off a defective firearm to someone. That is why I returned it to the dealer. He inspected it, and was amazed that the safety would not work. I witnessed him prepare the package slip to Taurus, so who ever ends up with the firearms will have, hopefully, a safe weapon.
I'm not sure how my posts were misunderstood.
Any way, this thread has gone on way too long.
