    My Taurus G2C runs great … I think of it as a 26X

  2. WizardofAhhhs 75 on October 31, 2021 at 5:41 pm

    I think their sales numbers speaks volumes.

    I have my 1911s, colts, s&ws, and many other high end guns, along with several taurus. I carry my G2C, now while I have done a few upgrades right out of the box, polished the feed ramp, replaced the springs, and bypassed the trigger lock. I carry my G2C for a few reasons: 1. I have personally put several hundred rounds through it with different gun range ammo as well as several hundred federal with no problems. 2. Is a big one to me that people seem to easily forget, if God forbid you have to use a gun, or really any weapon, to protect yourself or your loved ones, it will be taken for evidence. Now while all departments aren’t the same, I’ve had friends tell me that they never received their firearm back from evidence even after a trial is completed. I don’t know about you but that’s another reason why I carry a couple hundred dollar gun instead of one of my few thousand dollar guns.

    I have to admit that I fall under the "can’t hate on Taurus" category. I have a Taurus G3 and a Heritage Rough Rider .22 (as you well know, Heritage Mfg. is owned by Taurus), and I only have a small criticism about each. The Taurus G3 has sights that are dull and it takes a little more time to get a good sight picture (can still hit with it), and the Rough Rider .22 DOES NOT like CCI Mini Mags (I mean every time I run a "cowboy load" the cylinder literally jams, and that has also happened to my brother in law whom had the same model revolver as mine). However, I consider these minute complaints because an online order at Lakeline LLC fixes the G3 and using a different brand of ammo cured the Rough Rider issue. With that said, both guns run smoothly as I’ve put several rounds through each and I haven’t yet had to replace any parts.

    I have one Taurus revolver, & it’s a rare one. A Taurus "Tracker" 4" in .45 colt, stainless steel with a ported barrell from the factory. It only holds 5 of the fat .45’s but it is a true K-frame size, fits all my Smith K- frame revolvers holsters. I liked the 4" so much I went to buy the 2 & 1/2" model for concealed carry. But they only made it In .45 Colt for 1 or maybe 2 years. Never to be made again,….yet. adjustable sights, orange front sight & shoots like a dream. If I ever see one with a 2 & 1/2" barrel, I would buy it on the spot. Of all my collection my Son loves that Taurus .45 Colt the best, & i have a large collection. I won’t own a Tupperware plastic gun, hate them like i hate Biden, they’re ugly all look the same, have no resale value etc. They’re like buying a Mobile home, just go down in value, did I mention they’re ugly, I’m 68 & carry unless I’m in bed. I’ll carry the extra few ounces of weight of an all steel / aluminum gun. He’ll, I’ll put my 3rd generation Smith & Wesson model # 3913 9mm up against any Glock 19 as a carry gun. The actual beginning of the "Wonder 9’s". Or my Smith # 915 ..18 round 4" barrel duty gun which is only a tad bigger than the Glock 19 & holds 2 more rounds to boot thanks to Megar mags. & I bet it will out shoot a Glock or Taurus semi-automatic handgun.

    A gun is a gun

  7. LT Hutchins on October 31, 2021 at 5:44 pm

    2021 update. Had to send my .44 in for timing issues. Took them 2 days to fix it. FedEx took longer to send it back to me. I had to pay shipping to GA but they covered shipping back to me. My G2 has been flawless for years.

  8. Bradley Hollon on October 31, 2021 at 5:45 pm

    I was looking about a year ago at my local shop they were sold out of almost everything including most ammo i went for a Taurus they had on sale yhey sold the last one to the guy in front of me he said he had bought one the day before as well the shop only had maby 10 handguns left i wound up getting a glock 43 compact for like 480 my first glock the Taurus was going for like 200. The sales rep said he likes Taurus but the glock was the better choice im still considering a Taurus eventually

  9. Phil Easler on October 31, 2021 at 5:45 pm

    I’m afraid they still do. I’ve had to return 2 out of the 4 Taurus revolvers I have purchased.
    1) tracker 4 inch titanium, cyclinder wouldnt turn properly, I sold it after I got it back but wished I still had it
    2) 2inch blue 357 mag, again cyclinder wouldnt turn, sold it
    3) raging bull, it was fine, wish I had kept it
    4) stainless steel two inch 9 mm revolver, works fine

    So it’s a 50/50. I like them, just wish their quality control was better

  10. David André Alonso on October 31, 2021 at 5:46 pm

    Here in Brazil there are only Imbel and Taurus manufacturing handguns. Imbel is too slow and expensive, so Taurus become the only option.

  11. cLark Butts on October 31, 2021 at 5:47 pm

    My g2 pt111 safety blade broke into.i can still pull trigger,but the broke off tip digs into your finger.will get it replaced later.

  12. Cityhuman San Francisco Why do I live on October 31, 2021 at 5:47 pm

    No they don’t so no bish

  13. walleye364 on October 31, 2021 at 5:49 pm

    It’s a good pea shooter. It’s not going to last more than 500 rounds and it’s wore out. Good for home defense on a budget. Just unload and you should hit something.

  14. Jacob Caudle on October 31, 2021 at 5:49 pm

    I hate the way they look. Look cheap.

  15. Keith Hayes on October 31, 2021 at 5:50 pm

    Have owed 2 Taurus revolvers and a PT738(? 380). Both revolvers ran beautifully, round #5 lost the firing pin from the 380. Did a dealer return and had it back in 2 weeks. Zero issues after that. No cost to me.

  16. ItsME Israel on October 31, 2021 at 5:51 pm

    Pin fell out after shooting it once out the box
    And customer service is ass cheeks

  17. AA American Locksmith Inc Steve Stegle on October 31, 2021 at 5:54 pm

    They are a decent firearm for the money invested. They’ve had their share of problems in the past, but I think that they have improved their quality control & products.
    I’ve had to send one G2C back in for repair, the slide stop broke.
    Two of the revolvers wouldn’t lock up the cylinder, but I am a gunsmith and was able to address that issue.
    It’s a simple fix if you know what to do. It has happened on S&W revolvers as well and the repair is the same, as the guns are very similar in design. Overall, they’ve made some substantial strides in their product line. But, it is not like you’re buying a Colt, Smith and Wesson, Glock or Sig Sauer…

    Taurus is Junk

  20. Kirk Rea on October 31, 2021 at 6:01 pm

    I started with my g2c for my first everyday carry and always did good. Since I have bought the G3, th9, pt1911 and the judge. Love them all and haven’t had any issues. So far, so good.

  21. ironicchannelname on October 31, 2021 at 6:02 pm

    I have a G3c and it’s an amazing gun fires everytime I pull the trigger never misfeeds

  22. Jerry Hagan on October 31, 2021 at 6:02 pm

    I have owned 3 Taurus handguns and had to send everyone of them back for customer repair and multiple times on each handgun I had to fight with customer service to even get my Taurus 1911 bi-tone sent back to me after they had it for 3 months and it didn’t work when I got it back Customer service is the worst I have ever dealt with I will never purchase a Taurus in my life time if you have a good firearm hope you never have to send it in for repair Academy Sports sales person talked with me about Taurus and they see them as a sub standard handgun and told me they try to steer customers away from Taurus firearms spend a little bit more and get a quality firearm like Ruger, S&W, Glock, Beretta and so many more I got rid of the Taurus firearms or paper weights and bought quality firearms

  23. 666Lachrimae666 on October 31, 2021 at 6:03 pm

    I bought a Taurus G3C 9mm for my dad and I was chambering & ejecting rounds (like I do through my Shield) just to see how it cycles and as SOON as I did a hollow point round the slide Locked completely… and now it’s impossible to get the round back out… so I don’t even know if you can shoot hollow points in the G3C lol… so Idk if their semi Autos are any good… but can somebody please tell me if their revolvers are good? Good in quality & reliability… because I want to get the Taurus 856 snub nose for myself because it’s price is good for me but I want to make sure it’s a good gun first. I’ve seen lots of good reviews on it on youtube that approve of it but I worry from seeing all of the hate Taurus gets and that the G3C I bought pretty much turned out to be a big disappointment too….
    Any responses would be well appreciated 🙂

  24. Jacobus Prinsloo on October 31, 2021 at 6:03 pm

    Its quite easy if you buy a bargain gun then you have to be willing to take the little niks. I bought my g3 and i have no problems with it ive chased almost 500rounds through it with different ammo and it eats them like a monster.

  25. Stefano Pavone on October 31, 2021 at 6:04 pm

    I fall somewhere in the middle of the spectrum – I look for PPQ: Price, Performance and Quality.

  26. Adam Allison on October 31, 2021 at 6:04 pm

    Never had issues from the ones I have owned.

  27. Richard on October 31, 2021 at 6:04 pm

    Have personal experience with both Taurus revolvers and semi-autos. They have operated flawlessly. Would trust their performance under any condition.

  28. Youngboy Harless on October 31, 2021 at 6:05 pm

    My first handgun back in 2011 was a Taurus 709 slim. It wasn’t the best.. compared to the shields and Glock 43s of today. But it wasn’t terrible, my good friend has owned the Taurus 1911 45. For over 5 years and its been very good to him. Hopefully the tracker series in 44. Are solid. I hear they are, it’s my bear gun and I want to rely upon it. Great video as usual Dan

  29. Jonathan Lee on October 31, 2021 at 6:08 pm

    Don’t want that garbage Taurus give it to me.

  30. sdjb111 on October 31, 2021 at 6:09 pm

    Opinions are ass holes. Everyone has one. Ya know I am into all kings of shit. Firearms, RC air planes and Heli’s. And I see the same shit with all of them. If ya do not have the best of the best than it is some how sub par. And I call Bull shit with that. And I have shown they all that cheap is not junk all the time. So most FAN BOYS are haters and I guess that’s okay. I am just saying. And that’s all I have to about that. Every one be safe and live right.

  31. James Fish on October 31, 2021 at 6:10 pm

    ok the 1st Taurus i got was a used 9mm semi auto i hated it and yes i talked shit about Taurus, witch i feel bad about but thing is i now own a Taurus 357 revolver and a Taurus judge and i love them both never had much issue with them, some cheaper ammo dose act up in them but thats the ammo not the gun. On my 357 the front sight fell out one day shooting but i have had that happen with some high dollar guns. so im all for Taurus now

  32. E Nieves on October 31, 2021 at 6:11 pm

    After buying a G3C and having it for a few months decided to go for the T.O.R.O model and after 300 rnds a clicking sound developed when I shook the gun side to side. I traced it to a part that sits next to the sear. I called customer service and was told (after waiting on hold for 57 minutes) that if the gun was able to fire, they will not look at it, not even if I pay shipment both ways. It was my 1st experience with a Taurus product coming from S&W, Ruggers and Glocks. Not only poor quality product but awful customer service …not long time ago but currently.

  33. Mo on October 31, 2021 at 6:15 pm

    You buy 2 identical cars [not lemmons] one car gets maintained according to factory maint, the car is going to probably last a long time on the other hand the other car gets neglected and has some problems so this car is junk. Maintain any thing mechanical.

  34. David on October 31, 2021 at 6:15 pm

    Several of my friends have bought new Taurus revolvers and autos and every single one of them broke on the range and ceased to function

  35. Logan on October 31, 2021 at 6:15 pm

    I love mine

  36. happy single on October 31, 2021 at 6:17 pm

    I bought taurus 94 22 new from Bud’s, it was junk out of the box. I had to send it back 4 times for repairs, total time at taurus being ” so called repaired” was ONE YEAR !! I would rather have a Hi Point, at least they go bang.

  37. Curt Richardson on October 31, 2021 at 6:17 pm

    Yes,taurus semi autos deserve the hate..I’d have a Ruger or a Glock or a sig.

  38. Kelli on October 31, 2021 at 6:18 pm

    Purchased a Taurus revolver 454 in mid 2020 – I think June – and it broke in November after only going to the range with it twice. Parts broke and fell off of the gun when fired. This gun cost approximately $1000!

    After hours on hold – I’m not kidding here – I was finally able to arrange to have this gun returned for repair under warranty but I had to pay $50 to have it shipped! I have tried and tried to find out the status of the repair but I can never get through. I started emailing anyone I could find & posting on their social media and finally – after weeks of trying – a customer advocate called me saying the parts were in Brazil & taking a long time because of Covid. Ok, sure they are.

    She also was going to find out if the gun could just be replaced which would be ideal considering how quickly the failure happened. She promised me she would email me so I would have her contact info & never did! I have called & called and emailed & can’t get any answers! Just awful!

  39. Scott Wilkins on October 31, 2021 at 6:19 pm

    I have a taurus 357 tracker with 6 inch barrel. Most accurate handgun I’ve ever owned.

  40. 610 Moto on October 31, 2021 at 6:25 pm

    Yes. They’re junk. I’ll never consider one or handle one. can’t believe they’ve outlived Remington…

  41. Joel Scott on October 31, 2021 at 6:25 pm

    The T627 in 6.5 inch was one of my first guns. No problems!

  42. Bob Marley on October 31, 2021 at 6:30 pm

    I hear the G2C is a super pistol…………..Taurus revolvers……hmmmm……not so much……….".."

  43. Mach1 MustangGuy on October 31, 2021 at 6:32 pm

    Man my dad has a old Taurus revolver…. it’s older then I am. Gave it to me as a present for my first home. It’s great. He swears by it. I’ve nvr had problems with it. But their newer polymer guns tho Idunno.

  44. American 🇺🇸 on October 31, 2021 at 6:32 pm

    I’ve had no issues. I own the Taurus G2C, G3c and the .380 TCP and they all run flawless no issues at all. Never had to send the gun in for repair and anytime I did call for a question it was usually picked up in 10 minutes.

  45. Rick Shiell on October 31, 2021 at 6:33 pm

    I had a Taurus pt92 beretta copy.. it was a great gun

  46. fred martan on October 31, 2021 at 6:34 pm

    Taurus guns are great until you need a part or any kind of customer service.I was a fan until
    I purchased a new TX.22 with a bad barrel. I’ve been trying to resolve this issue since March, never again would i consider a Taurus.

  47. Curt Richardson on October 31, 2021 at 6:35 pm

    Yes,taurus semi autos deserve the hate..I’d have a Ruger or a Glock or a sig.

  48. Chase D on October 31, 2021 at 6:37 pm

    My opnion on Taurus has changed and I no longer think they’re bad choices. My new question is are more expensive firearms still worth it?

  49. Private_Ryan1 on October 31, 2021 at 6:37 pm

    I have never seen a Taurus but I see it as .40 S&W
    I don’t get why there’s hate
    it has it’s own uses
    personally I dont care if it’s cheap I just want something that works
    I dont want something bad but I dont want to go broke spending stuff

  50. Masked With Terror on October 31, 2021 at 6:37 pm

    Taurus revolvers are better than their automatics, in my opinion
