    Taurus PT140 range report

    Welp, just got back from shooting my PT140 for the first time and have a range report for you. I shot 10 rds of Federal Hydrashock JHP and 100 rounds of whatever they were using for range ammo (it was in a gray box, that's all). The gun shot straight. No FTE's or FTF's to report. In fact, everything went flawlessly. I was mildly surprised at the lack of issues. The range we went to was Mill Creek Sports in Dexter, MI. Small place. it was nice, we had the range all to ourselves. Overall, I was pleased.

    Glad to hear that your PT140 performed well for you. I think Taurus may finally be getting their act together with the quality control on their semi automatic pistols. On a more personal note, I have not had a single problem with any of the Taurus firearms that I have owned in the past.
    God bless our troops!

    I owned a PT140 and really like the gun. The only reason I sold it was the "straight 8" sights. This was before there was a bigger market in differant sights for the pistol. I've owned 3 Taurus handguns and never had a problem.
    God Bless America!!

    Good deal, I looked at the Taurus before I got my XD and think they are really nice. I have a PT-99 that I have had for years and I have never had a problem with it and it is one of the pistols I will likely never part with. I am happy to hear you are happy with yours.

    i was a little hesitant because of the bad reputation that Taurus has bred in the past. I must say though that this experience has totally blasted that out of my head. It handled just as well as the SW MP9 that I had before!

    Another +1 on the PT140. I have the 2nd gen DAO SS MilPro model and mine came with the three dot sights. Over 1,000 rnds thru it and not one single failure. I feel sorry for the rest that don't have the same experience with their PT140.
