Happy to find this forum. Recently purchased A PT145 pro after a few years of depending on a Louisville slugger for defense. I did a lot of research on this weapon and did not buy it because it was less expensive. I bought this handgun because I fell in love with the idea of having a compact .45 that could hold 10+1 and still conceal easily. This is a third generation model so hopefully all the bugs are worked out. What sealed the deal was actually holding it. The fit and finish are incredible, and on par with any of the S&W's or springfield XD's I looked at. I look forward to catching up on a few of these threads and maybe jumping in once in a while.
