I just got a 3rd gen PT145 Millennium Pro (10+1) as I love my PT745 Millennium Pro (6+1). Each has 450+ rounds through them and are 100%. Both shoot 1 inch groups at 30 feet.
Had a Kimber, Star-PD, Colt Officers and a Colt Defender, but they just didn't match the weight, accuracy, reliability, concealability, etc., of the PT145PRO.
My wife can shoot either with her tiny hands and is good to a 6 inch group at 30 feet.
My large (thick) hands fit well on the smaller grips of each.
Oddly, it is difficult for me to tell them apart when shooting. [??]
It is not a competition type sidearm, but in my 40 year search for the 'Perfect' CCW, I have found it in the Millennium PT145 PRO.
Too bad they weren't around during my 24 years in LE. It would have been the perfect off-duty carry at 10+1 and 22.5 ozs. and so thin.
I am partial to the .45acp, though.
Some don't like the Heinie sights, but I've been "Front Sight" trained for half my life, so no problem for me.
There are regular 3 dot sites available for those who prefer them [one of the Sig models?].
I also love the 'no load' trigger, which onlt offers resistance when its ready to 'squeeze', PERFECT !
Like all quality semis, they need 200+ rounds through them to be 'broke-in'... you'll see the wear marks that give that perfect fit.
Don't tell Taurus, but I'd pay $1200.00 for the thing before I'd go back to any of the others.
First time I've ever owned 2 of the same sidearms. [that wouldn't make sense, to some]
