You know what's wrong with a Taurus? it's not a high dollar pistol, and some associate money with value. Day one, mine has always gone bang when the trigger was pulled and shot with the accuracy of a personal protection handgun. It is not a Les Bear, Kimber, S&W, or other top of the rung 1911s', but it always works, always, and reliability is paramount for a service gun. I aint trying to shoot sub MOA at 7 yards under pressure, just stopping the threat.
