Also have checked into them but just not for me. Handled a few of them at a local gun show. Felt OK and there were a variety of colors.
I agreed with you once upon a time. However, I traded a Hi-Point for an old Taurus revolver to see if the gun snobs were as wrong about Taurus as they were about Hi-Point. After the Taurus proved itself to me, I took a chance and bought a new TCP. It was good so I bought a PT111 C2 and it has proven to be both reliable and accurate. I then bought a used Taurus 605 (357 magnum snub nose) and it is great. Based on that, I bought a Taurus 856 (6 shot 38 Special snub nose). Then Rural King had a sale for the Spectrum for $119.99 and I bought it. I also have a pre-Taurus Heritage Rough rider (since 2013) and a Rossi RS 22 semi auto rifle.I RUN FROM anything taurus makes or controls.
You would be surprised at how much Taurus has improved in the last few years. The Taurus PT111 G2 I bought in 2017 has been great and that inspired me to buy a 856 revolver and a Spectrum this year. They came to me unblemished with no cosmetic issues and have been totally reliable.Sccy upped their game Taurus no so much !!!!
I have a G2 Millennium that runs and runs. I like it so much I got the updated G2C.I RUN FROM anything taurus makes or controls.
