Welcome aboard, Bull! I live in Las Vegas. Glad to have you here.

You can't go wrong with the G2, I have two of them. I bought one in 2016, liked it so much I bought another in 2017.
It feels good, looks good, a nice compact size, and has a 12 round magazine (two to four more rounds than most other compacts). It also has a great external manual safety (firm & crisp, but not too hard). I like having a manual safety, and insist on having one for my carry weapon.

The PT-111 G2 breaks down just like a Glock (no tool required), and has the same trigger-blade safety, and an internal safety to prevent discharge if dropped, just like the Glock. It has a chamber indicator that sticks up slightly when there's a round in the chamber, and can be felt in the dark. I like that! There's also a rail below the muzzle if you want to mount a light/laser.

The PT-111 G2 does have a long trigger pull that some find annoying; not heavy, but long. This is due to gun's “Second Strike” capability. It normally cocks in single action mode (just like a 1911), but if you pull the trigger and the round doesn't fire, you can pull the trigger again on the same round. The trigger will engage earlier than usual, pull the striker back, and release from its usual release point. Using reloads at the range this happens to me occasionally, and I find that the round will fire the second time about 75 percent of the time.

I have a SCCY 9mm, which was my original carry weapon. I got the PT-111 G2 as a backup for the SCCY. It didn't take long before the Taurus became my Primary carry weapon, and the SCCY is now the backup. If the PT-111 G2 only had a de-cocker, it would be perfect!
