    Question with regard to the Class Action Suit settlement and the PT145 Millenium Pro

    I've read the final settlement documents for the Class Action suit that concerned the class of pistols than included the PT145 Millennium Pro. For anyone who might have legal training or have had the attached section from the settlement explained to them, what does the following mean?

    "2 Enhanced Warranty. As part of the relief available to the Settlement Class, the Taurus Companies have agreed to modify their existing warranty for all Class Pistols to allow any owner to submit a warranty claim (at any time) to have the Class Pistol inspected by the Taurus Companies at no cost to address the alleged safety defects. The Taurus Companies will pay all costs associated with this enhanced warranty, including but not limited to the cost of shipping to and from the Taurus Companies. This Enhanced Warranty is not subject to a time limitation and shall be for the life time of the Class Pistol."

    I know the deadline for asking for $200 or less for the pistol has long passed (February 1. 201, however if I should decide to send my PT145 Millennium Pro now, would Taurus have to pay for the shipment of my pistol to and from Taurus? When they inspected it, would they then declare it a safe pistol, or would they attempt to fix it, or would they kept it forever, and send some sort of replacement?

    Thanks for any opinions.

    Although I'm keeping my PT145, I did inquire as to what it would take to send it in, should I choose to do that. I was told (this was about 2 months ago) that if I had the original bill of sale for my PT145, they would pay for shipping. I do keep all of my gun receipts and records, so I have that and should I have decided to do it, I wouldn't have been out any shipping expense.

    That too bad for me. I got mine second hand years ago. So it would cost me shipping to and from Taurus.

    I loved the feel of the PT145 Pro when shooting. Used it as my carry weapon until the lawsuit. Since then, It's been in the safe. Currently, I just carry a subnosed SS 856 bought new before they were dropped from production and subsequently re-introduced. The 38 Special revolver works better now with my hands that are beginning to be afflicted with arthritis.

    Keep the gun unless you want a $180 gun back.
    If it's worth putting a hole in then it's worth putting a BIG hole in.

    Mine was second hand...paid $325.00 for it...and they paid for return shipping and sent me a PT 111 G2 SS in exchange. For arthritic hands, the recoil is kinder than the PT 145 SS. IMO they should pay for the returm frieght if you decide to send it in. There is no fix...they will not return it to you unless to agree to accept a gun that they consider unsafe.

    I sent in a 24/7 Pro and a PT-111 Pro, both in 9 mm. The only option was for me to back to G 2 C's with a one year warranty. I wish I had just kept the original guns. Traded the 2 G 2 c's for a S&W Shield.

    I shipped a 24/7 back to Taurus through a dealer. They said it would cost $12, which was fine. Shipping it
    yourself UPS is crazy expensive.

    As it was before the class action suit I got it back. When I went to pick it up the guy said Taurus paid
    shipping both ways. I was the second owner of the pistol too.

    All the Best,

    If your not going to use it get rid of it, might make more money selling it to someone who wants a 45 and knows what it is without the wait of sending it in and having no choice on the replacement.

    I had my LGS sent a PT111mp in January and got replacement G2c a few weeks ago. I like the take down system better, not sure about the trigger safety yet.
