    Talking Got me a gun!!!

    Yee Haw!
    Went to the Dayton gun show Saturday and finally got me a new gun.
    After looking at a 1000 guns I settled for a new Taurus Millenium pro .45 Caliber.
    It came with the case, 2 10 round clips, cleaning brush and 2 keys to lock it up. Got it for 350 bucks.
    I shot about 40 rounds thru it and it was getting dark so I stopped for the evening, but it has a lot of balls to it.
    It seemed to shoot low, but its probably just my bad shooting.
    Hopefully I'll get better.
    Anyways, Im amped up. Cya all. Rod

    Good for you now all it takes is practice. If your gun range has a class or a NRA instrucktor you'd be wise to take it. They can show you a lot in a short time. It helps you to become a better shooter. Good luck.

    To help you avoid future flaming, might I suggest use of the term "magazines" and not "clips". This has been a public service announcement.

    I shot one of those for the first time a few weekends ago. I thought it was a really neat little pistol, but I did have to adjust my normal grip a bit. At the first shot, I inadvertently hit the mag release button and dropped the mag. It's the only auto that I've ever used where that happened.

    Congrats on the new pistol. As long as your grip and the mag release don't interfere with one another, it should make a fine shooting companion.

    good

    hemmigremmie: Sir; good deal; now gets some bullets and feed that sucker.
    Practice until you are comfortable then start practicing some more

    Do a range report when you can.

    Thanks

    Congrats!

    By the way, magazines are for semi-autos and clips are for the hair.

    My Garand is a hairless semiauto and it uses clips.

    got the same gun and i love it. got close to 500 rounds and it works flawlessly. i adjusted to the kick and the grips cause i also take my glock 19 to the range at the same time as the pt145.
