I have a Taurus in the 357 Mag with the Titanium model. It's the biggest piece of crap I own. It shot ok with mild 38 special loads. I did a lot of shooting with them. When I went to the 357 mag loads, something went wrong. Accuracy was horrible on the first few shots. On about the 4th or 5th round, I had a piece of bullet material come back and strike me in the ear lobe, and some smaller fragments on my face (I always shoot with glasses and had ear plugs in that day). I bled like a stuck pig for a long time. It had shredded some bullet material and the pressure pushed it from the cylinder gap back at me. I sent it back to Taurus explaining my issue, along with my brothers PT45. My brothers 45 ACP had trigger issues, and would go limp after shooting 1 round. They ended up replacing the forcing cone on the revolver, and my brothers pistol still had issues. After having issues with both of them, I will never own anything again that says Taurus on it. If I am going to use something for personal protection, I need something more reliable than a cheap pistol.
