Hello, Manesolo, and welcome from Missouri to a great forum. Good people and info here!

Since you are new to this handgun, self defense arena, consider taking some good self defense classes. I also recommend you check out the many free YouTube videos made by Massad Ayoob, a world-class instructor in handgun use and self defense, who has recorded training sessions in Judicious Use of Force, Shoot to Live, Home Invasion, Preparation for Home Defense, and What to Do After a Shooting. Just Google his name and these topics and the YouTubes should show up. Very good instructional information from an expert, and free.

Here is a very good technical review of self defense ammo, when you want to consider this:
Best Choices for Self Defense Ammo

This is an informative review by a doctor of different gunshot wounds effects; we all need to be aware of this real-life information:
Doctor Talks About Gunshot Wounds

Take care, and best wishes to you and yours!

Welcome from southern Colorado! :wave: I recently picked up a PT1911 as well and thoroughly LOVE it! I think you will be pleased with it.

Now that you have it go find some ammo and hit the range. :thumb:

Hey guys. I just picked up my first handgun today. The Taurus pt1911 ar. I've field stripped it a few times already to get used to it. I'm going to the range Saturday to break her in. I am thrilled to finally have such a wonderful gun to call my own.
Welcome to TaurusArmed.net and congratulations on selecting the venerable and dependable Taurus PT1911AR pistol as your very first handgun!

You are, literally, starting out with one of the premier handguns in the entire Taurus pistol lineup. The PT1911 pistols are remarkably reliable, amazingly accurate, and an absolute pleasure to shoot.

Countless people on our forum own one or more of them, and trust the PT1911 to stand duty as their home defense "system"; and a great number of our folks actually carry these excellent pistols as their self-defense, concealed carry firearm.

Here's a pic of my recently-acquired PT1911AR chambered in .38 Super.

Welcome from Indiana! Love my PT1911SS. Since you have field stripped it, I am assuming you did clean it too. If not, you need to give it a good cleaning before taking it to the range. Let us know how she shoots!
