My shooting experience is limited to some plinking with various pistols and rifles after high school but before I joined the Air Force, trips to the range while on active duty and qualifying with an M-16 and a S&W .38 revolver, and about a thousand rounds through my 24/7 G2 (also 9mm).

Today I took my new PT111 Millennium G2 to the range for the first time. I can only say, "Wow, what a great little shooter!"
I put 230 rounds downrange with her.

At 10 yards it was easy to put every round inside a 6" circle - nice tight groups, mostly within a 3" circle. I won't go putting down the Glocks on either side of me, neither of whose shooters had groups like these; As Hickock45 says, all of our guns are much more accurate and consistent than we are. That said, I was still very impressed with this firearm.

There were no issues with FTLs, FTFs or FTEs, and every round was in the same rough size of group even when I shot Blazer Brass, Federal Champ PPU, and some Wolf 9mm with steel cartidges. The trigger pull on this little girl is quite a bit lighter than my 24/7 (which itself has improved after a thousand rounds and a little lapping the sear with an Arkansas stone), and she's smooth as butter.

The sights were putting rounds just a smidgen to the left, but I corrected them with the Taurus Tool included with the gun.

Just on a whim I put the target all the way down to the far end of the range at 25 yards. At that distance, the front sight covers the entire target (I was using a sheet that has nine targets on it). It was far away enough I couldn't tell where my rounds hit. I fired two magazines loaded with 10 rounds apiece at two different targets. Four shots in each group were within 2" of the center of the target. The rest were outside the 6" circle but no more than 6" away from the center. For some folks that might be lousy, but for a fairly inexperience guy wearing bifocals underneath safety glasses, I was pretty pleased.

I was also very pleasantly surprised at the recoil - this being a 9mm the recoil would be manageable in any case but I found that in spite of this gun's lower mass the recoil seemed mild relative to my 24/7 G2 9mm. It's obviously not due to the mass of the gun - I'm guessing it's due to the excellent ergonomics of the Millennium G2. It's quite a bit smaller than the 24/7, which fits very nicely, but the Millennium G2 fits my hands with even greater comfort.

In every respect - accuracy, reliability, recoil, ergonomics, I'm really impressed with the Millennium G2. I really like my 24/7 G2, but the Millennium G2 PT111 just may edge out the 24/7 and become my favorite.

When the TN HCP comes through, the Millennium G2 will become my EDC. She's a keeper!

Sounds like some good shooting! You two must have been made for each other. Grats on a good purchase.

I always enjoy reading a happy Taurus guy's range report on his new handgun.

I'm definitely pleased with my Millennium G2 pistol. :D
