I have been doing quite a bit of research on the pt145. From what I have found the 3rd gens are quite a nice pistol. I'm currentl EDC'ing a S&W 908 (Which I love) but looking at the pt145 it seems like a nice little package. 2 more round then my 908, a bit lighter and it's a .45 :)
One thing that I have heard quite a bit in the reviews that I have been reading (Much to my suprise) is that the recoil is "mild" for a compact .45. One of the things that has kept my from carrying a .45 is a concern over the recoil not allowing for fast accurate follow up shots. So pt145 owners, what do you think? Is the pt145's recoil milder then other compact .45's that you've shot?
