This is my first handgun purchase and the experience in dealing with the folks at Buds is nothing short of a delight. The price was excellent, it delivered quickly and was exactly as described. I will be making all of my future gun purchases through them.
As for the Taurus, this is an amazing firearm. I had rented it a while back at my local range and had an "Ah-Ha!" moment. It just fit perfectly in my hand. It shot tight groups at 20yds and had very low recoil. I was very impressed.
After that, I sought reassurance from the internet. I did not really get it. There are almost an equal number of Taurus "Haters" as there are Taurus "Fans" In my homework of Taurus, it seemed they had a little bit of quality control issues back in the 70's and 80's but since Bob Morrison took the helm they have dramatically turned things around. They are just well made guns at lower prices, period.
I am not trying to sway you from your favorite gun. People have there favorites, just like in the car world. - "I think Chevy's Suck!" or "Ford is a piece of junk!" and "Chevy is the greatest truck on the planet" or "I'll only by Ford Pickup's!" The reality is they are all true statements to whomever is making them. Both company's make excellent products that work well and serve their owners purposes reliably, it really comes down to personal choice.
The same applies to firearms. Taurus, in my opinion, makes excellent guns at really good prices. If you are in the market for a solidly built pistol that is reliable, shoots well and is comfortable in the hand than this is the gun for you. I personally would stake my life on this pistol. The price isn't a half bad motivator as well.
