I don't have both - I have a 745 and my son has a 111. They really do make a nice pair. I'm really surprised at how well both of these shoot. His has been flawless, even with lead rn reloads. Mine has given me a bit of trouble, but I like it too well to give up on it. I shoot mostly indoors any more and most of it is at 10 yards or less. My old eyes don't work very well at a distance unless I am in full sunlight. At 10 yards though, both will eat one big hole out of the center of the target, and I don't find the recoil to be objectionable in either gun.sar said:I have the PT745. Because I have small hands this was the best fit for me. It is very concealable.
Does anyone own both the 745 and the 111? I'm considering getting the 9mm primarily for the range as the rounds are less expensive and the weapons are similar. As I am new to the Taurus brand input would be appreciated.
I agree with you - I also would have preferred DAO.knarfster said:I want the DAO gun because I carry with one in the pipe, and I don't want a gun with an internal hammer that I can't decock, even if it does have a manual safety! What the hell was Taurus thinking moving to DA/SA? They make the big 24/7 available with a de-cocker.
