    Took a chance a few years ago and bought one at a gun/pawn shop for $300. Since then I have put over 1000 rnds through it and its my EDC with Taurus 180 grain loads. It shoots them all with no problems at all.

    Lots of PT-145 fans here including your's truly.

    Mine surpassed the 2,000 round mark a long time ago with zero burps.

    So it's a reliable, accurate, compact, hard hitting, soft shooting keeper.

    I've had mine for 2-1/2 years now.
    Initially carried it deep concealed in a pager pal holster.
    Since Oklahoma became an open carry state, I now carry it openly.
    I have a Millinium Pro PT 145 3rd Generation.
    As small a hundgun as it is, the recoil is very light for the caliber.
    Initially I had some problems with it stove pipeing. (I bought it used in a pawn shop.)
    But after a thorough cleaning I haven't had a problem since.
    I found it to be a viable defensive handgun.
    The larger the caliber, the greater the wound it creates.
    One round from a 45 may not stop him but it will surely slow him down.
    2 center mass hits will usually do the job.
    I was always told 2 to the chest and one to the head.
    And then again they did mention something about keep shooting until he quits wiggleing.
    You'll find it an easy handgun to carry either concealed or openly.

    I have two PT145 and I am very happy with their performance. I have a railmaster laser on both of them. Yes, they are my primary conceled weapon.

    I carry my P-145 with me whenever I leave the house. It has become my every single day carry. Matter of fact, it was the first of my Taurus collection.

    Good selection, sir; you have picked a winner!

    I hate to be the bad apple here, but mine went back to Taurus, about one week after I bought it new, because it would drop the mag when I fired it, and I have been shooting for many years so I was not pushing on the release when I fired. But, I do look forward to having my 145 for EDC. The few days that I carried it, it was very comfortable and I would actually prefer CC with the 145 over my M415 41 mag. The 41 mag has the power to end a confrontation but I would prefer to have 11 rounds of 45 plus a backup mag. Statistics have shown that even the police only get a few hits out of all that they shoot in a fight. I must say that I was quite surprised with how accurate this pistol is, for such a short barrel. Overall I say that the PT145PRO is an excellent choice.

    You can use the 12 round 24/7 .45 magazine (PN 5-24745-12) for your PT145 if it's a 2nd or 3rd gen. You can also call Taurus CS to order the 24/7 C spacer (PN 26119366) to make it look nicer in the PT145.

    I've had mine for about a year. I love it. I got caught up in the Glock craze and bought a Glock 23 which I really like, but my PT-145 goes out the door with me in a holster most times. I actually shoot it better than the Glock too, which just may be me though....LoL. I would definitely recommend buying one.

    I have no complaints with my PT145 , it is a great CC pistol !
