I wanted to thank alot of the memebers for the info that has been posted to this site. It help me make my mind up about buying a taurus, I have had it at the range already and fell in love, like most of you have stated here in the past the trigger takes some practice but after a heine sights adjustment and the 4th clip, I was driving nails at 10 yards. I was hoping that maybe someone might know this, the first 3 letters on my Pt145pro are NAR, I have read here that for a 3rd gen, it needs to have a Z in the letters, for more info. I have a Tan and Black PT145 pro one the right side and Mill only on the left, it has rails and the henie sights, 10+1 mag. I asked the salesman at Cabelas if this was a 3 gen, he said 3gen specail edition. Has anyone heard of this before.

Sorry, I cant spell or type all that well, also wanted to say that I have read on this site that the recoil of this weapon takes some pratice, i think this 145 has less recoil than my glock 32(357), any and so dose my wife, she wants the 145 now, thats the only problem I have with the weapon.

Got a question has any one tried the LaserLyte sub-Mimi on the 145, I looked at one and it likes like it will fit but the reviews on the laser, well must say they suck!
If anyone has info want like to hear from you.

Can't tell you if it's a 3rd, 3rd Special Edition or 4th gen gun. Might be called Special Edition because of the Tan color, only see then on 24/7. Still haven't figured out 4th gen is. 3rd gen has the heinie sights with dovetails, 2nd gen are screwed onto slide. Mine has Millennium on the left, pt145pro on the right.

As far as felt recoil I find the gun better then some 9mm's and almost all .45's. Was quite surprised given a 'plastic' pistol and only 21 grams weight unloaded. Most people will tell you that felt recoil is less with more weight and longer barrels but my gun flies in the face of that logic. Really easy to bring sights back on target and can shoot a few hundred rounds with very little fatique. Can't say the same for any other compact gun I've tried. Tried a few compact 9mm's that I had to put down after less then 100 rounds.

This past friday put 100 threw the 145 and 100 threw the glock32, i have shot the glock more and did better as far as groupings but after shooting that a the 145 on the same day and after say the 4th mags i was driving nails at 10yards. the recoil for some reason felt less to me and I had already fired 100 threw the glock.

thanks for your input on the gen question, the heinie sight are dove tail and have the figure 8 sights, JG

So it's 3rd or better. I agree with recoil, love the gun and carry it everyday. Nice little gun takes some time to get use to. Wish the trigger released sooner but that's part of the SA/DA that takes time to use well. Over 1200 rounds no ftf or any hiccups of any sort. No problem with ammo, use 230gr Remington umc mostly, no hang ups with any of the 230gr jhp, just don't shoot as much. Enjoy! :D
