Being left handed makes it somewhat of a challenge when buying things, namely guns. I knew it didn't have an ambidextrous safely but didn't think it would be so annoying. Now I remember why I was looking at the PT 24/7!

any other lefties on here have any tips?

Over time it becomes second nature to manipulate the controls. Time and practice to adjust to the right handed world of firearms.

Indeed. Doing "weak hand" drills for me has always solved the problem. For you, that is "strong hand", so it should be easier to overcome.

I'm a lefty and I hear ya. As other mentioned, practice drills (unloaded of course). Learn to flick the safety with the thumb while drawing out of the holster.

I reversed the magazine release on my PT145Pro, don't know what to say about the safety.

How are you using the safety with your thumb?
I think the reason I'm having the issue to begin with is because this is the first pistol I've owned with a safety. I'm a Sig person but couldn't afford one at the moment but wanted a .40.

You don't have to use the safety just because it's there.



I've owned more Ruger's and Glock's than Tauri in my many years of shooting but I'm not a Ruger/Glock guy. I love the Tauri because they're good bang for my buck.

I actually wouldn't use it if there was a decock on this model. I'm just not sure how sensitive these models are and I really don't want to carry a load/cocked gun around on my hip.

They are a great bang for the buck and that is why I didn't hesitate to purchase it. I worked at Academy for 6 years and sold many of them and people always liked them.

Thanks for the video! It took me longer than the 2:54 it took him but I'll see if I like how it works.

Yep, we will do it much faster after we do it the 1st time and know how/where things go.

I agree with you, I carry my PT145 with 1 in the chamber & safety ON. Lucky me, I'm right-handed.
