Get over it. If it isn't your gun you don't know what the heck the shooter was doing. Some people could break an anvil with a rubber mallet. Ruger and Taurus both seem to stand behind their products with less argument than I would if it were me, to be honest. I think if stupidity had a higher pricetag we might see less of it. Might. Anything would be worth a try.
Oh so since you had one that was not up to spec, all of them are that way? Ignorance is a sad thing to see, I carried a 650 CIA 357 snub as a backup for years and it fired nothing but Federal 125 357 loads, just as tight when I sold it off as when I bought it. But I'll not tell any more stories as some folks couldn't be persuaded of anything...
