my wife and i are new to conceal carry but not new to shooting. we've been shooting together for over 30 years, not competive but fun shooting. love our taurus firearms. bought my first taurus last year (pt111 older model 10 round,stainless over blue). this year we have already purchased 2 millennium pro models. i bought her a blue over blue 12 round used from our favorite pawn shop. i liked hers so much i bought myself a (stainless over blue) millennium pro off of Gunbrokers. God has blessed my family beyond measure. that said,i know the world we live in is getting worse. for the law-abiding out there: God watch over you...for the others: God foul the action of any weapon you use.
