    Mt father-in-law just bought one about a month ago. I've put about 50 or so rounds through his and it is a very nice weapon.

    I have a Taurus PT709 Slim single stack 9mm and it is great. I've put 600 rounds through it flawlessly. It is VERY accurate. I carry it both IWB or pocket carry easily. The 111 is too big to pocket carry, but can easily be carried IWB.

    You will be pleased with either weapon. Just depends on if you like the slim profile for easier pocket carry. My FIL found the slightly larger 111 more comfortable in hand and to shoot. I like them both.

    I have an older Taurus PT-111 Millenium. Not the Pro model though. Mine has been great.

    I have a PT-111 Millennium Pro. I love it. I have put roughly 500 rounds through it with no problems.

    I just took my PT145 pro to the range today for the first time and love it. From what I have heard the Mil Pro series in general are great guns. My PT145 is my new EDC.

    I have the PT145 Mil Pro and it is a machine. It eats any ammo I feed it and is pretty darn accurate. The ergonomics on the Mil Pro series are my favorite of any pistol in its class. It just fits. I don't know how many rounds I have anymore but I kept track until 2k. I would guess 2500-2750. I can't remember a failure of any kind related to the gun.

    I was so impressed with my Mil Pro that I bought a PT738 and I am now considering a 24/7 or possibly PT709 Slim.

    Don't quote me on this but I think I remember hearing that the pro models have larger controls (slide stopand saftey). Other then that I'm not sure.

    The Mil was the first generation; MilPro is second and third generation. Second Gen was DAO, third gen is SA/DA - Single action with a DA second strike in case there's a misfire.

    There are other minor differences but the trigger is the biggest.

    My wife owns a Mil Pro 111 and shoots it very very well.

    She does not carry it because it is too wide and and heavy for her to conceal.

    We have about 1000 rounds through it with no problems.

    Look into the Taurus PT709 for a carry gun. It's very light and thin. I love mine.

    I'm not sure what the clasification is of the first gen (sa/da), but it is striker fired and has double strike capability. Here is a review of the first gen, but mine is the non Titanium model.

    Taurus Titanium 9mm Millennium

    I really like the fact that the Kel Tec P-11 belt clip fits this thing too. I usually stuff this thing down my shorts when I hit the trails on my mountain bike in the summer time. I don't lose any sleep sweating all over and neglecting the gun a bit.
