Do not let the price fool you. I have three Taurus firearm one is 66 357 mag very good pistol are reliable as my Ruger Sp101. The other two are pt92 (IMHO better than beretta). One is brand new Rail under the frame fired so far 400 standard loads and 300+p loads. Loads are 124gr +p from Black Hills, Winchester, and Federal. Black Hills are the hottest, sounds like a 40 cal. I did modify the pistol with a sprinco recoil system and Hogue grips, recoil is not and issue and thriple tabs and double taps are easy to hit the target out to 15 yards. The last is my father Taurus pt92 made in early 90's fired thousands of rounds. I remember some misfies, but do to the cheap bulk ammo used. This pistol never stovepiped or jammed. I have other makes but rely on my 92 as my home gun. I also heard of some problems with Taurus, but also heard problems with Sigs (another good brand), Glocks, Berettas and Rugers.
