Taurus PT145 Millennium Pro 45acp Stainless [1145039P]
by Randal L
Date Added: Monday 21 January, 2013
This is a GOOD firearm at a GOOD price. It's a fair deal. Good quality firearm for carry purposes. The short barrel makes for tough shots out past 10 yards. But if you want a compact .45 Auto to carry, this little boy can do it for you. Make sure you spend a good amount of time getting to know this gun. Make sure you fire it a lot before you put your life in it's hands. It takes a little getting used to.
You get ten rounds of .45 ammo at the ready with this. But I only carry it loaded up with 6-8 rounds. My reasoning is this...save the springs in the magazine and make it a bit lighter to have on the hip. I love the ten round capacity tho...since I reload and shoot a bunch....having ten rounds at the range is good for me. Then when I load it up for carry...I leave it at six to eight rounds. Up to you.
Make sure you give it a good breaking in. I shot up two hunderd rounds over two range sessions with it to break it in. I discovered that the magazine was dropping out every two shots on my first session. I struggled with it for a bit and managed to get 100 rounds downrange. I then called Taurus and told them about my issues. They promptly sent me a replacement magazine release and matching spring. I installed it and since then, very good weapon.
Not as polished and sexy as my other firearms. But it serves it intended purpose very well: A carry weapon.
One final thing: This weapon is for an experienced person when used as a carry weapon. The reason I say this is because it is single action ONLY. There is no decocker. When you chamber a round...it stays cocked. The only time you get double action from this weapon is if you have to pull the trigger again to attempt to fire a dud multiple times. There is a safety...and the weapon can be carried with a round chambered...but it will be cocked and ready to go bang if you hit the trigger. This not an issue for a competitent carrier...but a novice will most likely have a mishap.
The lack of a decocker and inability to choose double action when being carried is the reason I take away one star. Other than that...this gun is very well priced for what it is.
