If you're used to a DAO trigger, this one takes a little bit getting used to. My other carry guns are all DAO, but after spending a little time with the PT145, I really like the SA/DA set-up. Give it some time. The PT145 older models were DAO, I guess Taurus felt this was a better system for the latest generation. Put a few hundred rounds through it and see how you like it. Lots of 145 owners here. Any questions, I'm sure someone can help. Welcome to the forum.
