Hello Everyone,

Just picked up my first Taurus last weekend at a gun show.

I normally carry a Sig P239 in .40 or a Ruger LCP (.380) and I was looking to pick up a 9mm to round out the collection. My father and brother recently picked up Glock 19s and I was fairly impressed with those, so I had a Glock in mind when I went looking.

I walked by a table that had a PT111 G2 and found out it had literally just come out a few weeks ago. I really liked the way it felt in my hand and the build quality seemed solid on it. After finding out they have a lifetime warranty, and seeing the $200+ lower price tag than the glock I was looking at, I decided to give it a chance.

To be totally honest, I had heard a few bad things about Taurus guns, but with this being the latest model I was banking on any previous issues being worked out.

Took it out to the range today for the first time and I am happy to report that this one is a keeper! Gave it a good cleaning/lube last night and after 200 rounds of mixed brands of ammo I can report zero issues of any kind.

The trigger is a tad bit longer than a glock, but easy enough to adjust to. By the time I reached the 3rd box, I was putting some pretty quick shots where I wanted them to go. Groupings were very close to dad's G19.

All in all I am happy with the purchase and I look forward to being a part of what looks like a very active community here on the forums!

PS: anyone know a good place to pick up a 3rd mag?

Now for the pics! (Hope this works, first time posting pictures with Tapatalk)

Glad it comes with two mags:

Welcome from Ohio, I just picked up a new PT111 G2 on Wednesday and can't wait for the weather to warm up so I can go shoot it. I hope mine shoots as good as yours did.

Welcome! from central Texas. I picked mine up last week. Wasn't planing on another gun purchase. Happen to be at Academy the day the millenium Pt111 G2 arrived. Asked to look at it and wound up buying it. I too was that impressed. Taurus hit a home run with this one.

Greetings from Nebraska! I bought my new PT111 G2 a couple weeks ago, and love it so far! I THINK that mags from the previous Millenium Pro might fit, because mine are marked "PT111PROCAL.9mm". I'm still trying to figure out if the gun itself will fit into the older Millenium Pro holsters. Have fun with the new gun and welcome to the "family"!
