OK, I became a member in Nov. 2011 and done a little lurking since then, but never 'active'. I started my "T" ownership with the PT709 a few years ago, followed by the 738 (later traded as I got out of the .380 caliber), then bought a PT-92, which I really (I mean really!) like. Within the past 2 weeks, I picked up a PT1911 (when I got rid of 738 and two AMT .380s). This was my first intro to 1911 ownership. It just felt good in the hand. While looking for more mags and ammo for the PT1911, I found a PT145. Got to a range last Friday and let the new kids sing. I still like my 9mms, but the .45 has added a whole new dimension and the PT145 is now my EDC.
