Hey everyone. The names Jeremy, Im from New Hampshire, Im new to the site, and i just recently (4/26/08) bought my first gun ever. A brand new 24/7 Pro .45. ive been doin lots of research for quite some time now on new guns trying to figure out which one would suit me best and narrowed it down between the Beretta PX4 Storm, Ruger P345, and Taurus, all in .45 caliber. I wanted the beretta but the price is too much so I decided on the new Ruger P345, but the second I picked it up i knew it wasnt right for me. I just didnt like the way it felt in my hand, and ive actually loved the way the Taurus looks so i asked to see one and fell in love with it as soon as i held it. It just fits so perfect in my hand, and the price couldnt be beat. Ive only put 100 rounds through it and despite cleaning it first it still shot flawless. I cant wait to go tomorrow to put another 100 through it Well I just wanted to tell my story and explain a little about why i chose the Taurus, and even though ive heard some negative about it i think it will be a great gun and i wont be dissapointed with my purchase. Im already an avid Taurus fan.
Welcome to the forums. There's a lot of good info here. Since it may be assumed that you've seen most of the 24/7 data or stuff on .45 ACP ammo the links for that won't be brought out unless it's requested.
The number of ammo links can take a long time to go through. It's worth it, but having beverages and snacks handy is almost a given.
