    Two of my converted buddies both bought one. I've shot 'em. They seriously made me want to trade in my Hk for one. I just posted about buying a new handgun and I actually had one of these sitting on the counter next to the Beretta 92G. It ALMOST came down to "eeny-meeny-miney-mo."

    Like drivering nails at 45 feet. I was blown away. IMO, it's a VERY decent 1911 for the price. But I don't know much beyond those for a 1911, so...

    I've been looking to get into the 1911 game and from what I've read the Taurus 1911s sound like a great buy. About the same price as a Springfiield GI with a lot of the extras already added. Unfortunately I've yet to see one in person.

    I have been happier with my PT1911 than with most of my other guns. A pure joy to shoot and the value/price ratio is GREAT!!!!

    I've always been very skeptical of Taurus stuff and have never owned one, but I will say this I handled that new Taurus and man it felt good, smooth, and it didn't look half bad. I was HIGHLY Impressed. The PRICE for the product is very very tempting and I'm not a 1911 guy.
