Question: Has anyone used their Millennium Pro PT145 (or any Taurus Auto for that matter) in a shooting course? I ask, cuz on the High Road, I've had a couple of instructors tell me that their students who have had Taurus Automatics in their course usually switch weapons mid-way due to various failures of the weapon. When I asked specifics, e.g., what particular weapon, weapon generation, etc., I was not given satisfactory answers. Pisses me off. When I assured these instructors of my own weapon reliability, they retorted with, "Well, yes the Taurus autos are just fine for range use, however, hard usage in tactical course work have reflected numerous stoppages and function failures in their experience". So...I want to know: Has anybody taken their autos to these "hard usage" shooting courses...competition course...whatever trial by fire course there is out there? Can you tell me your results/reflections? Me...I've just shot them at the range. My weapon goes bang every time I fire it. Oh, I admit, that it does not like hard primered rounds and I have had occassional light stirkes. That was easy to resolve...I just found ammo it likes. I have never had a FTE or FTF. Why would their be any difference between casual range firing and course work...aside from operator pressure/error? I'm tired of people huffing and puffing on various forums on how their particular auto can go 600 rounds before cleaning. Whats up with that? I mean, even in the military, we never expected any weapon, let alone a pistol, would go 24 hours without a cleaning. I personally don't fire more than 50 rounds at a time on the range...I clean, lubricate and grease the gun with each outing. Why wouldn't someone do that with their weapon? Do these instructors actually believe that I will encounter a bad guy or guys and expend 600 rounds in my self defense? Feedback ....anybody?
