All,

I just picked up a Taurus Millennium for my wife. Got it brand new with 2 mags for $275.00. It has all the aesthetic appeal of a broken brick, but it holds 12 rounds and fits my wifes hands very well. Put a couple hundred rounds through it and not surprisingly not a single hitch. I've always thought Taurus handguns were the most underrated handguns and some of the best buys. I'm not much for plastic guns and DAO's or the sort, but I just cant find anything to complain about here for under 300 bones.

Anyone else have any experience with this gun, good or bad?

Ok, I found a complaint. There is NO adjustment available on the sights what-so-ever! The sights on mine are off to the right by about 2" at 25 yards and there's really nothing I can do about it. Considering this is a home defense gun for my wife, it's rather insignificant, but I view the absence of ANY sight adjustment as a rather serious oversight.

Ok, other than that, I really can't complain about much when you consider the price.

GunGeek, sorry to be late to the party but my PT111 is a good solid POS. Why? The trigger is so bad one can not shoot the pistol well. I am hard pressed to keep a magazine full of 9mms in the body mass on target. After realizing how bad the trigger is you call Taurus's customer service to find out you will get no help. Ask me if I would buy or recommend another Taurus product? NO,NO, and NO! Regards, Richard

Richard,

The PT 111 does have an atrocious trigger, but being that I only gave $275.00, I'd be hard pressed to find a better gun for the price. Although the trigger is stiff, mine isn't gritty and it's a heavy consistent pull all the way through. After applying some Kentucky Windage, I was able to ring in some hits on an IPSC target at 100 yards.

It would never be my first choice for a defensive pistol, but it works every time and the price cant be beat.

Been really happy with the PT-145 Millenium Pro in 45 ACP.

I thought about this some more and I ponder why such a great pistol sells for so little? Yes, this is tongue in cheek! Regards, Richard
