Well, after shooting many different guns, I found one that fits me like a glove.....The Taurus Millenium Pro PT145. I had decided to get a Glock but i just don't like the feel of them. I spoke with the guys at Don's and they said the PT145 was a very reliable and they have had vero problems out of them. The second generation PTs had a problem with the clip falling out but the newer ones have that fixed.

Anyway, Don's had them for $399 but Academy had them for $299!!!! I would have paid twice as much. These guns have the best grip i have found for a double stack mag. It is not a bulky grip...They are 10+1, lifetime warranty:eek:, great safety features(thumb safety and key lock), small and easy to conceal, and can be broken down in seconds.

I know some don't like Taurus but this gun is a winner. the only downside is the cost of .45 ammo:smack:. I put 150 rounds through it yesterday at $17/50 box. Then tack on the $13 range fee. Thats $64 for one day of shooting:eek:

If i still like this gun as much as i think i am going to, I am getting a taurus 24/7 9mm or the PT111 9mm. That will save me a little dough at the range. I am not a cheapo but can't spend $64 everytime I go to the range. here is a link.

I have an older PT100 and love it! It's a little bigger than I would like but I haven't had a problem out of it at all! That is a fine looking gun backstraps!

I abso;utely Love Mine!! It is the same model...Millenium Pro PT145....it shoots like a dream, is very accurate(close range) for a 3.3 inch barrel, and I have had absolutely Zero problems with it!!!!!!:up:

As you said, the only draw back is the cost of 45 auto ammo.....but tell me something that is not exspensive nw days!!:biggrin:

It is a sweet shooter! Have you felt a more comfortable grip on a double stack mag. Taurus hit a homer on design IMO.

Dang, the more I shoot this thing the more I love it! I have been using cheap Monarchs and have yet to have a hiccup with 500 rounds through it already. I am so impressed, I am now looking at the Taurus line for a larger 9mm. maybe the 24/7 Pro or 24/7 Pro OSS.

But then again I really want a good looking PT1911, .357 Ultra Lite, judge, Beretta P345(I think), Sig P220....You get the point.
