Durable, awesome fit in hand, priced well-,
December 14, 2013
I bought this in the 9mm right after it came out and have been well please with its durability, its fit and finish and the price I picked it up for. I have read review after review over the last number of months about others who have pick this gun up and 98% of the reviews i have read would give it a 5 star/buyanotherinfuture/recommend to a friend, etc. Again I am please with the gun. the recoil is just right/easy to manage ( bigger caliber will obviously be a different story). I love its fit and finish. enjoyable feel in my hand and fires confidently with a crisp trigger pull. I have put a couple hundred rounds through it of different types of ammo(cheaper and higher grade) and it has eaten through them all with no issues. Also you cant go wrong with the Taurus lifetime warranty on the gun. the gun could be sold time after time and it doesn't lose it warranty. The few negative reviews out there have pointed out they are not pleased with a few minuscule things they personally don't like. for instance there was mention of the sights quality, the thumb safety location and the racking ledge looking like it was wearing. None of these things mentioned have been issues i have encountered. ultimately if a problem occurs, Taurus will fix it or replace it. This is a quality gun that is worth more than its selling price. yes, Id buy another. yes id recommend it. In the end each individual has their own opinions. If your interested go to a locate store, see if they have it in stock and hold it in your hand for you self. 5 star from me-

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly,
September 26, 2013
Have put about 200 rounds through it and had one failure to fire. With the re-strike capability, the round went off with another trigger pull. The FTF was not the fault of the weapon (cheap ammunition) as I was simultaneously shooting 200 rounds through my infallible Glock 26 and it had 2 FTF. The Glock does not have the re-strike capability so I had to wait for a hang fire and then eject the round. This is not a problem for the Taurus.
Two other advantages of the Taurus is the very slim width of the handle and is excellent for concealed carry, and the 12+1 capacity. It feels good to carry.
Disadvantage of the Taurus, it seems to have some plastic componets in the butt plate of the striker mechanism that chip. I called Taurus and they said they were aware of this but would not affect function nor performance. Still don't like that. The enamel painted sights were "over painted" on the dots and this indicates sloppy workmanship to me. The indentation catch in the receiver which allows it to remain in the open position is very shallow (~1mm) and is already shiny from wear after 200 rounds--not sure if with use and age this will soon lose its edge-grip to remain retracted when empty.
Bottom line: I like how it feels in the hand and conceals for IWB carry and has a restrike capacity. I don't like some of the flaws/workmanship, but for the price, it is a good deal.
