    Taurus PT-111 Vs. Kel-Tec

    hmm, Academy is having Taurus PT-111 9mm on sale tomorrow for $229, what you guys think vs Kel-Tec or Bersa Thunder or RUGER LCP™ .380 for $299??

    To me pt-111 sounds like a deal.

    Also can some one plz. tell me if pt-111 has an adjusteble rear sight?

    That's a good price, especially if it is stainless. If you haven't owned or shot a compact pistol before, I would shy away from the Kel-Tec P380 and Ruger LCP. Both of them are VERY light, and VERY small - two things that make them VERY hard to shoot well. The Taurus is larger (but still compact), and though it fires a more powerful cartridge, will be easier to shoot well because of the larger size and increased weight.

    I used to have a PT111 and I found it superior to the Kel Tec. I traded it for a PT145, 45ACP. The rear sights have a set screw and can be adjusted.

    Saw the same add; had the same thought. Quick question. The advert. said it was DA/SA. Is that correct?

    PT-111 is a DAO pistol, just like the PT-140 and PT-145. The 900 series guns are DA/SA.

    my understanding is that the 3rd generation of the PT 111 is SA/DA. The first shot and each shot thereafter is SA. If the round in the chamber doesn't fire, then the gun reverts to DA and you have second strike capability.

    The 1st and 2nd generations of the gun were DA only.

    ahh, I have a very stupid question what is straight eight DAO.

    Also SA- means single actio DA- double action, what is the difference b/n SA/DA and DA/SA??
