Yes! Convinced me even more that I made the right choice.

I liked the review also.

Looking forward to the .40 and .45 versions.

BTW I am one of those "nuts" that trained with a manual safety and have learned to prefer it.

On ALL of my carry weapons, AFTER VERIFYING THAT THEY ARE INDEED EMPTY, I practice drawing them hundreds of times while clicking off the safety until it is a natural movement.

Thanks for sharing the link to this great review of the new Taurus Millennium G2 PT111.

Oh no.

Might be time for me to upgrade the PT111 to the new Gen 2. :guns:

I actually found mine at a local gun shop near my house for 329.99. So I figured I would bite.
I love how it feels in the hand. Now I need to run some ammo through it.

Nice report; it's always good to hear a gun snob publicly admit they were wrong about Taurus products and become "born again" gun lovers. :r_c:

But I've got to rock the boat a tiny bit.:icon_ poke: Both my 3rd generation PT-111's are 100% reliable. Personally, I prefer their looks and feel over the PT-111 G-2.

According to Taurus's home website the PT-111 weighs about 17 oz while the G-2 version at about 21 oz. is 4 oz's heavier; why?

The only advantage I see (for me) in the G-2 is the disassembly apparatus they (and lots of other gun makers) have borrowed from GLOCK. With no rotatable removable pin to deal with, it is faster to field strip & reassemble. :thumb:

Same thing happened to me. It was the first week of February and I had yet to see the announcement of it. I saw it in a gun shop I've never been to while doing some work in that town. I had already been looking at the Mil Pro and thought I'd take a blind chance on this one. These days If you can find what you want at a reasonable price, you'd better jump on it! I paid $344 for mine, and If I could learn to shoot it more accurately, I'd be 110% satisfied with it. 300+ rounds and flawless so far.
