I have never had this occur with mine. I do some stupid things with my carry gun to make sure it doesnt ever do what I dont want it to do. I have tried that before with nothing happening

Welcome to TaurusArmed.net!

The MilPro PT145 will not fire with the safety on; at least we don't have any documented accounts on this forum of this happening, that I'm aware of.

Yep, I saw some stupid guy's video on YouTube, he depressed the trigger while applying the manual safety and said the safety did not work. That proved no matter what the gun manufacturers did to make the guns safe, the guns would never be safe in the hands of the idiots.

Welcome to the forum! The PT145 is a sweet gun for concealed carry. I hope you will get it soon.

Edit: I suggest you check out the PT45 on Bud's and Davidson's.

Welcome aboard from Florida the "GunShine" state.

I've never heard of this problem.

I've put over a 1,000 rounds through mine without a single burp.

I've had mine for over three years and about 3,000 rounds. No problems with it ever that I can remember. Its my primary carry. Since I do have more than one gun in my carry rotation, and my PT145 is the only one with a safety, I started carrying it with the safety off about 2 years ago. Quality gun belt, quality holster, and good booger hook control make the safety a non-issue.

I saw the same video.
Tried it. The trigger does move with the safety on but I didn't want to force it. It didn't snap with the safety on.

When you are inspecting your prospective buy (and you should inspect every pistol before you buy) and you have it on safe and pull the trigger, if it snaps gently hand it back to the salesman and ask to look at another. No pistol should fire when on safe and it is an aberration (an issue with that particular pistol) or that design would never have made it into production, if for no other reason than product liability.

but over all a safe gun to carry?

Yep, it is safe to carry with a round in the chamber. Many PT145 owners even never use the manual safety. As long as we keep the trigger finger off the trigger until we intend to shoot, it should not fire.

I carry mine all the time, and I still have all my fingers and toes. Gotta agree with Taurus10 - it takes an idiot to override the safety by pulling the trigger back before you engage it. Your booger hook shouldn't be on the trigger when the safety is engaged unless you're getting ready to shoot, and certainly shouldn't be on it with the safety off and a round chambered to begin with. There are those who will tell you it's safe to carry with the safety disengaged as long as you don't touch the trigger, but I disagree. The manual says the weapon can discharge if dropped with the safety disengaged, and there's at least one person who has posted on this forum with a bullet hole in her abdomen to prove it. Use a good holster that covers the trigger, carry it with the safety on, and don't drop it - which are good ideas for nearly any weapon. And remember, your number one safety is the 5 1/2" between your ears.

It's safe. I carry mine with the safety engaged. As intended.

You can make anything fool proof. You can't make anything stupid proof.
