I have 4 Taurus pistols; PT145MilPro in .45APC, 24/7DS in 9mm and two 94's in .22lr. I often carry my 145. I have north of 3000 rounds down range with no unexplained failures - no failures attributed to the gun. I don't carry the 24/7 since it's a full size. But I have about the same number of rounds shot with it as with my 145. Same results. Now, for the 94's. They are club guns. Both have at least 10K rounds, and both still work flawlessly. One thing I've found out as a lifelong gun enthusiast, shooter and instructor - both military and civilian - is that regular maintenance is paramount. My guns are cleaned after every range trip 0 rounds or 100 they are cleaned. I've had people tell me that my club guns look almost brand new. No kidding!! I treat my guns before I treat myself.
