I was a firearms instructor for over 20 years for the PGC. I instructed and qualified WCO's and Deputy WCOs in handgun and police shotgun shooting. I tried to lead the deputies to either S&W, Colt or Ruger revolvers in 4 inch barrel.357 Mag which was the caliber and style required by the agency and deputies had to provide their own duty firearms. I can safely say that it was a rarity to hold a training session or qualification where some deputies had Taurus revolvers that at least one didn't seize up and not index and the deputy could not finish the training or qualification course until the gun cooled down and we had to do the qualification in increments. Most of those deputy promptly traded their Taurus revolvers for a different brand. Due to my experience with Taurus revolvers, I would never but or carry one.
