"That very same store, with those examples you mentioned would give you approximately nothing for a Taurus."

Were I of a mind to trade in any of the sub $300-$500 firearms I own I would expect to get very little/next to nothing in trade-in value. Not unlike thinking folks on Pawn Stars will get a GREAT deal from Rick when they sell him their stuff. - lol

I have a Taurus 24/7 Pro, TCP .380, and a 709 Slim. They all shoot flawlessly every time I take them to the range. I have a Smith and Wesson that jams more often. I would not hesitate at all buying another Taurus. I would love to buy a .357 Raging Bull.

Nice, for a bunch of $300 guns, I would say you got the 50% that run.
Be happy with them. FWIW, I don't buy the part about the Smith, unless you are running ammo its not supposed to digest. Even 1911's will choke on certain ammo. Its up to the owner to figure it out.

its pretty asinine to tell a person that if his smith and Wesson, that costs twice what his Taurus hand guns cost, jams its because HE is feeding it bad ammo and not a defect of the gun.

Its ASSinine to pull a stunt like that.

I play the odds. The amount of defective Taurus guns is 100 times or more than that of Smith and Wesson. The odds are that this gentleman threw that in for theatrical effect. I am also entitled to my opinion. Any ass can deny concrete evidence of failure rates.
