    I bought the Taurus

    I got a Taurus Millennium PT145,not the Pro series.It has a thumb safety and 3 dot sights,no light rail and it's all black. $315 tx included.

    What is the difference between the regular Millennium and the Millennium Pro?

    Millennium = 1st Generation
    millennium Pro = 2nd generation
    Millennium on one side and Pro on the other = 3rd Generation

    3rd generation has Straight 8 dovetail sights.

    1st & 2nd Generations have 3-dot sights.

    Sounds like you have a 1st Generation model.

    Check out the search function on this site for taurus issues, thefiringline.com also has a nice search feature and you'd find info.

    I have the Milenium 140 pro and love it. I've been waiting for it to do something stupid and dum, but the only thing it's done was eject the clip when firing, but sent it to taurus and it was resolved.......took a while though, like 6 weeks. But other than that, i love it. It's in between my hands now as i type.
