    I just hope I'm not going to be sorry...

    I am trading my Rossi 462 (2" SS .38/.357 Mag) in for a Taurus Millennium pro 140 (Blue Steel .40 3.25").
    I just hope I'm not going to be sorry. I have a Taurus PT 24/7 .40 and love it, so I wanted to drop down to one type of ammo and found a good deal on a trade in.

    The Taurus is a better gun, not to down the Rossi. I think you'll be very happy with it. Nice piece!

    I was one of the fortunate few who had an original millenium in .40 who was happy with it. I know this fact. The more ammo you put through it, the better it shot.
    From what I have read, you should be very happy with the improved and upgraded millenium pro. A very hardy pistol with a sweet trigger.

    New ones have a DA/SA trigger so not so bad anymore like the 24/7.

    I have a PT140 and they are good guns.

    That doesn't seem to be limited to economical guns. I love H&K USPs, but "...the trigger pull is BRUTAL!" on it too.

    I think you'll be pleased with your trade!

    Don't really know much about the newer PT-140's. I have a first generation PT-140, the trigger is quite heavy on it, and due to size and weight of the gun it can be brutal to shoot a lot, even more so than a .357 snubby. The up side is you are getting double the round count with the PT-140 versus the Rossi snubby.

    The Rossi was a great little CC gun. But wanted to consolidate to one caliber. I found this little taurus Millennium Pro I could trade it for.
    The trigger pull of the Rossi was real hard in the DA, my Taurus PT 24/7 Pro is a dream and I fell in love with it! So I was hoping the smaller version would be a good replacement. I does look nice.

    I have a 3rd Gen PT-111 and the trigger is the same as the 24/7 now.

    I think you made a good trade

    You traded up to a better gun IMHO

    NightWolf, I am assuming the glock in your avatar is the one you sold to the "Muslim guy 4 doors down from me"?
