I bought a Taurus Model 85 about two months ago, and it would only fire 99% of the time. In other words, it would not fire on one round out of every 100. It had a light primer strike problem.......Needless to say, it's gone. It was the only Taurus handgun that I've ever owned. It is the only Taurus handgun that I will have ever owned......Never again........Their QC sucks..........
Why do you think they have to throw in ammo with the Taurus? Ruger, all the way.
Have 5 Ruger handguns, the oldest one 30 years old and going strong... and the next two are already planned. Never a problem, never a disappointment. Every one built like a bank vault and gorgeous. What's not to love? Well worth the extra shekels.
I know I'm the exception, but the only guns I've ever had problems with we're rugers. An overly picky mk2 and an sr9 that couldn't shoot a full mag without at least one failure to feed and one to eject. Just gotta throw it out there.. Any company will have problems.
