I own a large number of handguns both autos and revolvers. They are Colts, Ruger,Sigs and S&W. This is relevant because I never considered the Taurus as a contender. That being said, I shot a 992 and was very impressed. Now I own one. It is a high quality handgun . You get a lot of bang for your buck. The double action pull is a little heavy. The finish is better than a S&W and you will pay about 200.00 more for a 22LR. Very nice handgun and no regrets. Buy one you wont be disappointed.
