Hi everyone. Well, I finally got a chance to take my PT111 out to the range today after her recent vacation to Florida. They replaced the extractor. I was of course nervous after my terrible first outing. I loaded up the first mag of Remington 115 ammo. It went bang and on round number 6........Failure to Load!! AGAIN!! I cleared it and finished off the mag. 3 more mags run thru it and the same thing. Around round 6 or 7 in the mag, I got a failure to load into battery. I had with me 3 other types of ammo. I switched to Winchester White Box 115gr. I loaded up the first mag and it ran thru flawlessly! Finally. I ran 6 more mags of the WWB ammo and it was perfect. I feel much better about this gun now. I'll stick with WWB ammo for now until I can throw a couple 100 more rounds down range. I've got UMC, Mag Tech and Blazer Brass. I am REALLY looking forward to making this my EDC weapon after a couple more outings. I'm still shooting left but I am sure it's operator error. I was gonna switch out the Heini sights but I really don't think that is the problem. Afterall, we all should be focusing on the front sight anyhow. Time will tell.
Best part was at the end of the session, the range master took a look at my gun and said," Wow!! This would make a great CC weapon!!"......I had to chuckle.

Sounds familiar to me. It's my carry too.

I usually think of Remington centerfire ammo as being good, but I probably won't use it in my recent CZ 40 pistol, either. I had misgivings before I even shot it because the nose was so much flatter than the other .40 ammo I had. Not an issue with 9mm, but you have to feed a semi-auto pistol what it likes.

I only use WWB, unless I am running HP, never had a problem. That is until 5k rounds are through. Went today and came back to clean it and found no head on my disassemble latch. Called Taurus and they say the part is restricted and would take six weeks to fix but only if I ship it to them. I am so not cool about sending my gun to them for six weeks. Going to see what I can find online.
