||First let me say that ordering through Buds was super easy and will continue to purchase from them.
Now the pistol...
Smooth firing and looks great
Barrel has play causing it to rest low and to the right, this causes shots to be off by 8" low and right (we used a laser bore site and sandbagged it at 50'). I had heard that being a new gun, Tarus would offer to pay shipping and quick turnaround. Well not so, I had to pay $103 to overnight it from Oregon and after 3.5 weeks still have no estimated time to get it back.
When I called to complain about freight cost and no offer to pay, Taurus was nice enough to offer to pay return shipping ( how generous on a 2 month old firearm with little use). After shooting my friends Berreta, I am kicking myself for not getting that instead!
5 stars to buds
3 stars to how cool the gun looks
0 stars to Taurus and their service (lifetime warranty doesn't help when it has to go back in less than 2 months with no estimated turnaround)
Will not ever purchase a Taurus Firearm again (again, can't blame Buds for my bad choice in products)
I give it a total of 2 stars for being cool looking and Smooth firing (even though it cant hit the side of a barn)
