    Taurus millenium pro PT145?

    I was looking at one of these today its used and in really nice shape at me LGS they are asking $270 OTD for it. I like the small size,sights and weight and the fact it hols 10+1 of .45acp,it also fits my hand well. For those here who have one of these gun in .45acp ot any other caliber what has you experience been with it?

    It's been my EDC for a while now and I really like it! It's easily concealed and mine has been completely reliable. Many rounds thru it without a hiccup....buy it!

    I've been carrying one for almost nine months. Probably fired 800 rounds so far and absolutely no issues. Has been a great gun for me. I alternate carry with a G26. About the same size, but 11 rounds of .45acp vs 11 rounds of 9mm. Glock is a little more flexible as you can get all kinds of extensions or use G17 or 19 magazines. I carry the Taurus in a Don Hume 715 IWB during the summer Recently transitioned to a Bladetech OWB for winter. Easier to get to. Really wish the G30 was the same size but it's a real chunk compared to either the PT 145 or the G26. Price seems fair for a used one.

    PT145 is my current CCW. Got it recently. Shoots fine, no problems.

    The latest version allows the gun to be carried cocked and locked or decocked for double action first shot.

    Are you sure about that? I don't believe the PT145, which is part of the Millenium Series, has a decocker. It is my understanding that it is the 24/7 models which have the decocker/safety feature.

    Am I wrong on this?

    If so, i might consider getting one myself.

    I have the 745... lots of thump in a very small package...

    I shot my PT 145 in a IDPA match, well lets say that me and a friend of mine shot it. We used the cheep Wolf brand ammo, just for fun one day. We were able to make it thru almost the whole match before it started to jam up. So that little gun got quite a workout. IMO its a great little gun with a punch, and with a Armalaser, you cant beat it.

    I have one that I carry most days - I think it's a great gun! Mine has never failed or jammed, and I'd guess I have appx 600 rounds of assorted through it.

    I like my 2nd generation DAO model...'bout as small as my G26:



    Nice .45 ACP punch and carries well:



    Even does a pretty good job as home defense:



    Accurate enough fom my two magazine self-defense needs:
