Default Thoughts on Taurus PT111 & PT145???

What are your thoughts and experience with the Taurus Millennium PT111 (9mm) and PT145 (.45)? Both have a 10 round capacity. I have several other full size pistols and I purchased these with Concealed Carry in mind. I find them both very comfortable and not too difficult to shoot even though they are compact models. I just wanted to hear your thoughts and experience with these 2 pistols. Thanks...

I would check the date of manufacture and serial numbers to ensure they are not included in this:http://www.al.com/news/birmingham/in...ntary_rec.html

I had a PT140 DAO, it worked fine....reliable, accurate enough for a smaller gun.
My son also liked it and ended up with it.

I kind of missed it so when I saw a PT145 DAO for sale here on CG I bought it.
Again, reliable and accurate.

The downside to this family of pistols is that they all use the same F&R sights, from the .380 version to the .45
While they seemed to be right on with the .40, the .45 shot about two inches low at 7 yards.
That's one ragged hole at 7 yards, but low.
I made a spacer to raise the rear sight up about .040" and now it shoots to point of aim.

Otherwise, zero problems.

I'm not terribly worried about the recall.
Have not been able to make the 45 do anything wrong when testing it after hearing of the recall.
When Taurus is ready I'll send both in for a check-up.

Taurus is hit and miss. I got PT111 and PT745. 111 is flawless all times but I had couple problems with 745 and had to send it twice to them to fix the problems

I've had a PT745 for a few years now, it's my main CCW gun. I'm mainly a S&W fan, but this little Taurus has been flawless and very accurate. I've shot well over 2000 rounds through it and it's never had a single problem, EVER. I can't say that about my other guns, just this one.
