Just wanted to pop in the section and see everyone's opinions on a Taurus for my first 1911 purchase. I have fired probably 6 different brands/models, but never owned one. I am looking at the 500-650 range which new puts me at Taurus, Rock Island, Remington R1 standard, Ruger(possibly a left over para). And some used SA from what I can tell. I have never owned a Taurus, but like the looks; however have seen a lot of reviews and reports that concerns me.
So so wanted to see if anyone would go with the Taurus at a value price or an alternate brand at a similar price?
