From Nevada Carry:
While at Front Sight last weekend taking the Handgun Skill Builder my Taurus was jamming every time we would do a Type 1 malfunction drill. I would have the loaded mag, empty chamber, and action set. Then I point in, press the trigger, CLICK, then tap the mag and rack the slide to the rear. As the slide came forward, the firing pin (?) was still poking out and would rest on the top back of the round it was trying to chamber causing it to jam.
A few people took a look and didn't know what was wrong. Someone suggested to take it apart down to the springs to see if it was gummed up but when I got home I realized I didn't know how to do this and it wasn't the time to figure it out. Since Taurus has the lifetime warranty I decided to just send it back and use my Beretta 90-two the last day.
So I'm thinking either the gun broke or something is gummed up from my shooting it so much. I ALWAYS clean my weapon after I come home from shooting it but not down to the springs. I'd say I put anywhere from 2500-3000 rounds through it since I purchased it brand new. For a gun that I plan on carrying every day and shoot a lot to make sure I'm proficient with it, this kind of sucks. So for all my friends that told me not to get it and to get a Glock, go ahead and say "I told you so!"!
I don't want to badmouth Taurus here as I'm sure they will solve the problem for me but I just don't think I'll want to keep the gun after I get it back. I'm leaning toward getting a Glock 23 or 27.
