    Glad he liked it. He was quite obviously pleasantly surprised at how well the gun ran.

    Funny -- he starts with an apology that he only brought one magazine of ammo for the range review, then finishes with, "Your responsibility to be ready for the fight never ends."

    I guess, 'the fight' isn't the same as, 'the gun video'. Was he in a deadline crunch, or could he have just gone and gotten more ammo before recording. I mean, even with just one magazine, he could reload it.

    It's a trick some of us have used when we only have one magazine for a gun.

    Maybe he shot his thumb off with a Glock or something.

    I'm sorry but James looked giddy as a schoolgirl after shooting the PT1911. He was genuinely surprised at how well it shot. They say you never have a second chance to make a good first impression and I think the PT1911 blew him away. It's great to see Taurus getting some much needed respect.

    Likely he carries in a shoulder holster then?

    My PT1911 FS is one of my best semi autos, but it doesn't seem to like non-Taurus mags as well as it's one original Taurus mag. No jams or mag drops at all, but racking the first round from the Taurus mag is easier than the aftermarket mags for some reason.

    Interesting??
    I have some 13-14 1911 of different brand/model and likely 50 or more 1911 mags, some are 10 MM and 38 Super but MOST are 45 acp, I actually got 2 bags of them stored away cause I go so many.
    just for the record a 45 acp 1911 magazine WILL NOT work with 38 Super ammo, trust me I know!
    all my 1911 run on all my 1911 mags equally well it seems.
    Now all 4 of my PT1911 run 100% but that is due to Taurus and ME working on two of them, really more me!
    my most accurate 1911 is the Springfield Armory Range Officer, the second most accurate would be one of my 38 Supers I think, although the Dan Wesson is big old tack driver as well.
    The DW doesn't take standard 1911 mags as its a stacked version with 14 +1 capacity.

    anyway they so far have been exceptional weapons , especially for the price.
    one is the 10 MM Ultra, the loaded 500 dollar 1911. with G-10 grips, beavertail, mag well, adjustable rear sight, front fiber optic , vent rigger, ring hammer and a few other goodies!
    certainly a best buy in a 1911 and they have super good customer service I understand.
    I have the same one, second one actually. The first was sent back to Vegas after 1 week of ownership, the safety bar broke. They had it at repair for almost 3 months before I emailed the VP of sales, 2 days later a new one was sent to me overnight. I love it, its a shooter, stupid accurate and after about 800 rounds, seems to be quite reliable.

    I still don't like James Yeager and I wouldn't take one of his classes.

    Didn’t he call Taurus products some ugly names a few years ago?

    Heard him say “all guns should be 9mm, and all 9mm should be Glock’s, and all Glocks should be model 19s”.

    And then didn’t he run into some “difficulties “?

    I have seen him do 2 or 3 Taurus reviews were he has this same type laugh and effusive praise.

    Strange - or perhaps not.

    "If this thing will shoot a whole magazine, it'll be off to a better start than a whole lot of 1911s, huh?"

    How to destroy your credibility in one sentence. Didn't even watch the rest of the video. Why listen to someone who says something that stupid?

    But getting to the OP's point, I think it's true that Taurus is getting more respect and appreciation in general these days. And the good thing it, they are earning it. From what we're hearing around here, I'd say Taurus is on an upswing.
