I bought a 5" Raging Bull .454 for bear defense when fishing and hiking in Alaska, or the Rockies. I also just wanted something heavier to shoot than my .44mags. All my other revolvers are S&W. The Raging Bull is a beautiful revolver, but mine had 10% misfires. No exaggeration! Called Taurus customer service. They were very efficient sending me a shipping box. I pulled the bullets and powder and included the misfired cases with the returned gun. Got it back in about 2 weeks. Now it misfires about 4% of the time. This is a handgun I thought I might have to use to protect my LIFE, but I would NEVER trust it. It is a beautiful looking gun, fun to shoot when it goes off, but I'd never buy a Taurus product again after this experience.
