Gunz are icky.
Glocks blow up from lead bullet reloads because stupid lazy azz retard Glockheads don’t clean the barrels properly.
Glock polygonal rifling Leads up quickly. It has to be scrubbed out each time.
Dumbsheet glockheads don’t do this. After the barrel has a nice build up of lead the bore diameter actually becomes restricted. Then they stick a full power jacketed round in the pipe and kaBOOM.

Agree.

This is a benefit of powder-coated bullets. I shoot my G17 and G21 with cast bullets that have been powder-coated with Eastwood FORD Blue. I make sure to size them down to .356/.452 each time, load as usual, and never had any problems.

I work for a Forensic Architect. We study structures that fail all the time. The interesting thing to me is the plastic frame remained intact while the stronger metal failed. This could either be a metal issue caused during production or someone using inappropriate ammo.
I was near a guy years ago at our public range. He was shooting a Glock 19. He was shooting some potent lead bullet 9mm shells he had reloaded. The range officer reminded him that Glock does not warranty gun shot with lead ammo. He smiled and said he had done it before with no problems. Well, a few minutes later the Glock exploded sending the shooter to the hospital.
A handgun is a serious item. You must treat them with great respect. I have been a pistol shooter for over fifty years. I reload for everything I shoot. I still have all of fingers.

As the ignoramous that I am, I shot Lasercast Silver Alloy bullets in my G19 for quite awhile before the barrel "leaded" up. Didn't know any better, but hey Glocks don't need to be cleaned and just keep on truckin right? Anyway, the Oregon Trail Bullet Company marketed Lasercast as a non-fouling bullet. Not so, I've shot them in a stainless revolver and it was almost impossible to get the "lead" out. Needed vinegar soak to disolve it.

Now I reload Xtreme plated for my Glocks and inspect the barrels more regularly. G34 competition pistol gets cleaned after every match tho.

Some Glockheads change out the barrel to an aftermarket one without the polygonal rifling so they can shoot lead cast lead bullets without the problems of the factory barrels.

Wasn't worth it to me... the price of plated isn't much more than lead boolitts. Less'n one is casting his own.

Hope we get the rest of the story.

My only Taurus is a G2C that has been great through thousands of rounds by many shooters. It rides in my car under the dash.

She's almost 80 now... thinking about getting her a .22lr Ruger

Bought one of those for my ex wife. Horrible trigger. When it worked that is. After sending it back to Ruger twice, I ended up requesting they replace it with a 38 LCR.

That one has a much better trigger. Consider one, and maybe use it with light loads. Or even one in 327 Magnum, but put lighter 32 loads in it.

Taurus is one of those guns that performs best in a sock drawer.
It will work fine for a little while. Until it doesn’t.
So a person on a budget who wants a gun to keep beside the bed and that will never really be fired much if at all will be well served by a Taurus. No sense in spending many hundreds of dollars on a high end firearm if its just gonna live in the nightstand.
If you’re seriously going to run your firearm you will experience massive fail With a Taurus.
Your money. Spend it how you wish.

The glockheads i’ve been around are typically a cheap shite MF.
Buy a new barrel just to shoot lead? They look at you like you’re from Pluto.
Now remember, these are the same dolts who buy Bubba’s InFamous Unknown Gun Show Comes in a Stapled Sandwich Bag reloads.
You know. The ammo with no powder. Then they bitch when the gun won’t cycle.
Hey, buy some factory ammo? They scream “them shells cost money!”
“I hate cleaning them F’ing guns!” is a commom refrain.
