I have a Taurus 111 Pro - 12. No problems so far. It will even eat the Tul Ammo I got while it was still going for $14.95 a box.

Friend recently had and I mean had a Taurus 45 auto. Nothing but problems, sent it back twice and it never got fixed. I showed him my SR9C and 40C then let him shoot it. He took the Taurus down to our local GS and traded it for the SR40C. No problems with the Ruger works every time and he thanks me every time I see him.

I just picked up a LNIB Taurus Tracker in .17HMR last weekend. I couldn't pass it up for the price, and I am glad I bought it. We were plinking golf balls at 25-30 yards with the open sights. Sweet shooting and nice looking revolver. The guy included the scope mount with the deal so I'm looking for a scope for it now. Included in the deal was an Aimpoint CompC3 that I'll either put on one of my ARs or sell to finance the scope. Wish I could stumble upon deals like this more often.

bought a Sig P238 and it's hands down the best of the .380 Pocket Pistols.
True that! I like their P230/P232 a lot too.

I really like my P238, excellent 380 pistol. It's just a mini 1911

They are not well recieved because of their past reputation. They were once known as "Saturday night specials" because of their shotty worksmanship back in their earlier days, since then they have been schooled by Beretta's management and also underwent restructuring from the ground up, everything from the machines to the workers and managers was overhauled and reformed into the quality small arms manufacturer they are today. The only thing they didn't change was their name, I believe if they had, they'd be better off than they are now. I was once a "Taurus hater" until I was enlightened by a former employee and told of the overhaul they did. Their higher quality is now appearent in all their newer firearms. I currently own 11 different Taurus's, I've not experienced a single issue with any of them and each and every one reflects their newer found manufacturing processes for quality, reliability and dependability. There are still a lot of folk's that believe Taurus is the same as they were before they were reformed into one of the top arms manufacturers they are today. Dollar for dollar they certainly make a hard to beat lineup of firearms.

Well maybe so but after seeing the shoddy manufacturing on my friends Taurus 45 auto I wouldn't care if they gave me one, wouldn't want it. Now on the other hand I know of another friend who has a Taurus 357 revolver and he likes it and has no problem.

When I started to research which handgun to buy, I certainly looked at all the Taurus pistol offerings, mainly because of price. Luckily, I bought Ruger instead. I only say that because out of all my personal acquaintances that are serious gun users, I haven't found any yet that like the Taurus automatics. Several of them have told me that Taurus makes an alright revolver but that is as far as they will go.
