    I love mine. Dont listen to those that done own one. Thousands upon thousands of rounds and never a single issue. Often times over 500 rounds at a time, flawless.

    I have a PT140 and have had no problems. Comfortable, accurate SD gun. Many do not like Taurus but I have had no issues with mine. Good luck

    Its a great pistol. Be sure to get a late gen model Mil Pro. and even better, rent one. The only cone for me are the Hiene straight eight sights. I cant stand them.

    I own one, however I feel the texture on the grip is a bit rough, and the fit isn't as nice as I would like. It does have a rattle or two. My example has about 1000 rounds through it and as far as I'm aware its never missed a beat.

    Love mine also and it will be my EDC when my permit arrives.
    Mine is only a couple months old, 3rd generation and have sent 700 rounds through it without any problems at all.

    I have one of the early models (before the Pro version). While there were some problems at first (failure to feed, probably magazine related), Taurus fixed it and I have enjoyed shooting it. It does show some ammo preferences, but it is reliable and accurate, and it does see some CCW duty.

    The PT 111 Mil Pro was the first pistol that I bought. I could shoot OK with it. Then I bought an XD 9 SC - and I seem to shoot much better with the XD. So the Taurus is now my BUG in the Gun Vault.

    I would buy Taurus again; love my pt111. Goes bang on command and has never failed to do so for me. The sights are a bit different than other guns in point of aim=point of impact but it is the way the sights are designed. Look at the Taurus site for a better explaination.
