Hi,

I have decided that my new carry gun is going to be a Taurus Millennium Pro 3rd Gen. However I can't decide which to buy, either the PT140SSP or the PT145SSP. You thoughts and input on this subject will greatly help with my decision.

thanks for any and all replyies.

I really like my PT145SS Mil Pro, first .45 I ever owned too. I have no experience with .40 so I can't give any input there, but I can say that the recoil is soooooo much less that I expected in a .45 this small.

I have both. Love them both. I tend to lean toward the .45 I just like that big ol bullet coming out of that little gun. 10+1 is hard to beat. My PT145 is DAO 2nd generation. I love that feture. DA/SA on the 40.

Do you own any other guns in either caliber? I feel its easier to limit my normal usage calibers to just a few. That way I'm more likely to have ammo around if I want to go shooting on the spur of the moment or something serious happens.

This would not include guns/calibers kept around for fun.

Welcome!

I have the PT140 MilPro SS and the PT111 MilPro SS both 2nd gen DAO and I just picked up my new 3rd gen SA/DA PT145Pro SS yesterday. I can only tell you how happy I am with the PT111 and the PT140's performance. I love everything about these pistols that's why I got the PT145. I have not had the chance to shoot it yet but I can tell that the PT145 may soon become my primary CCW weapon! ;D

Which ever pistol you decide to buy...it's a win win situation! Can't go wrong with either gun IMO!

Just picked up the 3G PT145SS and let me tell you "I LIKE IT". Rides great in my Don Hume IWB holster and there's something very comforting a 10+1 rounds of 230gr. on your hip.

You should handle both before making a choice. The grips on the .45 are larger than the grips on the .40.
One may fit your hand better than the other.

As far as caliber goes, that's a personal choice. I for one think either is a good caliber.
