Get the Glock.
I am looking at buying a compact handgun to carry
My 1911 is to heavy to carry around for a period of time so I need something lighter
I'm looking at the glock 30 and taurus millennium pro series PT145
I know the glock is a reliable gun and need to know if the taurus can match it even through it is built in brazil
The Glock is built in Austria so how does where its made make a differance?
He found out it is not as reliable as a US made 1911.....jaming after every 5th round, he used different mags and ammo and nothing changed
Most products from Austria and europe are known for reliably, including guns
Just woundering if the gun from Brazil is like the 1911 from the Phillippines or the Glock from Austria
Glock, hands down, but don't expect it to be that much lighter than a 1911 with a fully loaded magazine.
XDs are made in Croatia (The other Europe). They are good guns. The Rock Island guns are, for the most part, pretty good. Your friend had a bad one, or there are other issues to be addressed.
Taurus seems to have more than their fair share of quality issues. This doesn't mean that all Brazilian made products are poo. Springfield sources many of their 1911 frames from there.
I don't buy into the whole "Euro Superiority" thing. Just because there are some very good European products out there, doesn't mean that all European products are in fact superior. Much of the added cost can be attributed to the Euro Zone labor costs, not inherant superiority.
Of the two, get the Glock. But ake a look at the S&W M&P.
I own a taurus and a glock. In terms of reliability, glock beats taurus by a country mile. Taurus's are good for sporting and target uses, but don't trust your life to one.
No contest IMO. Go with the Glock.
Money could come into play?The Taurus
Millinium Pro series of pistols are pretty good.
No real concerns.I have a Pro PT-111 9mm,
and love it.No jams ever.The price I suspect would
be a couple hundred dollars cheaper than the Glock?
Glocks in my opinion are ugly,but very reliable.
I would pick the Glock,simply because it is
As for the Taurus PT 140 I bought it because it was small and powerful. I started having serious doubts about its reliability. So I keep on firing it every weekend waiting for it to fail just to confirm the proverbial taurus bashing in the internet. It did not. It keep on firing without any hitch. The longer I punished it with all kinds of ammunitions the better it gets. I quess about 1000 rounds passed already in this diminutive monster. I have no doubt it will fire when I to draw it in the most unlikely event.
Watermelon vs a Glock...
Ice cube versus a glock...
apple sauce versus a glock...
THESE are all more realistic comparisons than Taurus vs Glock
Kimber Vs Glock........
Yup more realistic!
I own a PT145 and use it as my CCW. Ive put well over 400 through it and never had a single jam or any other malfunction. ive had problems with a glock jamming. Put honestly its what you are comfortable with carrying
Some people buy a Taurus and never have a problem, too many others buy one and it never works right. Firearms and gambling don't mix. Buy the Glock.
I have a PT140 and it goes bang everytime. Glock's are for the in crowd.
Glock. If you're still not sure, then get the Glock.
