I got a new Taurus PT111 Millennium Pro last weekend. My husband took me to the range today for my first time ever shooting a handgun. To be honest I was very nervous and when we got there it was busy. I watched people shooting through the windows as he waited in line to get our lane. A Woman I was watching turned from the shooting lane with blood running down her hand and I was about to change my mind. I did talk to her later and she said she had got her hand to high on the grips and the slide bit her. She was ok but didn’t shoot any more today. Husband calmly took me aside and told me I would be ok, just to remember the things he had showed me and to use the proper grip. So we get our earmuffs and safety glasses on and enter the range. Wow it was loud even with the ear protection. The first magazine didn’t go so well, several misses and then mostly low right hits. After adjusting my stance and my bifocals it started getting better. Also discovered the gun won’t jump out of my hand, smack me in the forehead, or burn me with the flying casings. That helped calm me down a lot, I thought it would be a lot worse than it really is. Recoil also was a lot less than I expected. After my first 100 rounds I am hitting closer to the center, still get a few flying left or right but not as many, and looking forward to more practice. The gun functioned perfectly. He never told me it was this much fun! Here are a couple pics.
