    My new Taurus PT145 first range trip

    Took my brand new PT145 to the range today. Took 150rds of Blazer Brass 230gr, 24rds of Hydra Shock 230gr, and 100rds of Remington 230gr JHP +P. First off the gun shot everything all day. Had one FTF on something like the 120th round because I didn't push it all the way to the back of the clip. It seemed to have a lot less recoil than my XD45 did. The trigger also felt better, smoother maybe. Either way, the only problem I had all day was that the clips are very tight with 10rds in them, so the gun wouldn't chamber the round unless it was firmly set against the back of the clip. I guess I'll have to pay close attention when I'm loading. Here are a few pics of my targets. Good ole white paper and sharpie. The Rem. JHP's shot the best. The Blazer was much wilder. I did have to adjust the sights a little, I started off the day shooting a little left.... looks like I may need to adjust back just a little.

    Congrats, leave the mags fully loaded, the springs will probably loosen up some.
