That's not an argument starting post in the least.Funny how if it's a S&W, it's the "friends" fault; but if it's a Taurus, it's immediately the gun's fault...

The incidence rate with Taurus is WAY higher than with more reputable manufacturers. Of the 20 some handguns I've owned, plus those which I've gotten to shoot that belonged to others - budget guns like Kel Tec and Taurus were far more prone to failures and breakages than guns like Glock, Smith & Wesson, Beretta, Ruger or Sig.So what about the other manufacturers that have had similar issues? All listed above have had issues, yet you still recommend those.
And all the shrapnel from shooting steel plates.A stark reminder of why we wear ANSI approved safety glasses while shooting.
Squibs can be deceiving if one is wearing heavy or double ear protection.He shot three rounds and then kaboom. Barrel looks okay, slide broke into pieces. Squib? Out of battery firing? Sure would like to see the brass. I would bet this is an ammo and not gun problem but all speculation for now.
Friends don’t let friends buy Taurus.
Most certainly never use a Taurus as a serious SD weapon.
