    I've had good luck with my 24/7 Pro, 45 Cal. I was sceptical about Taurus QC but the gun didn't cost much and felt good to me and I just liked it. Still do.

    PT 745-Millenium Pro in 45ACP. Mine has been flawless and is my regular carry piece over many more expensive guns I own. I'd recommend any of the most recent Millenium Pro models. The trigger system is vastly improved as well as removable/replaceable Heinie sights. Great guns for the money, hard to beat.

    The only Taurus auto I would ever say is a decent choice is the Millenium, even though they are not the bargain one would think if they just looked at the original price tag.

    I would suggest against the Millenium in 40. It packs quite a punch in recoil , my safety would not disengage sometimes and mine Kb'ed on me. Not saying they all do that but, it was enough to convince me to choose a different carry piece.

    You can try the 24/7

    The PT940

    or the PT100

    I have a PT140 millenium that I have had for about 6 years. Shoots well when I shoot it. Just not a big fan of Poly frames and SAO guns.

    I have a Mil-Pro 40. I have shot close to one thousand rounds through it with never a problem. It is a very accurate shooter but it does have a bit of a kick, maybe more than your wife to be wants to handle. Other than that a good affordable pistol.

    Heck, my PT111 9MM has more kick then I would normally like, I imagine a 40 would be more.

    I like my wifes lil' PT111 though, it sure conceals well and will do the damage at close range...

    For Taurus poly's your choices are going to be limited to the PT and the 24/7's
    The 940 is a small metal frame (and I believe no longer made).

    I also luv the comments by people who say the .40 may have to much kick for her.......why assume that?

    If her requirement was .40, couldn't (and maybe shouldn't) it be assumed that she's shot .40 before and is comfortable with the recoil?

    Taurus Millennium Pros

    I own two Millennium Pros. One in 9mm and one in 40cal. They are both great guns. Sometimes I carry them both. They work well iwb with carry clips. While they are not target pistols they are very good down and dirty guns. The reset is rapid and short. Neither has failed to fire or had any stoppages no matter what the ammo. The straight 8 sights do take some getting used to.
