    Taurus pt100/101

    Ok so I said I would never buy another Taurus after having all the problems with my 990, but low and behold somehow the last time out to taurus the little 990 came back and is working great 400 rounds and I was wore out loading and unloading! It really restored some faith in me. So with that being said I have upon me a chance to own a pt100 or 101 for a really low price $349 for the 100 and $359 for the 101 I have my friends old pt92 this weekend to shoot to see if I even like this style of gun. So far I really like the feel of his, but keep in mind his is an early version. I want to put a 40 in my safe and would like some input from 100/101 owners. Thanks Tom

    Ran strong for you then? I was considering the PT100 for a new purchase.

    i still own, shoot and carry both.... never had a failure of any kind that wasnt attributed to me occasionally limp wristing. both are fed thru the old ramline extended mags, pre-ban and still work perfectly..... the 92 has uncle mikes grips and the 100 has hogues.

    i would buy them again in a heartbeat

    Good to hear that Ted, I just got in from my shop and spent some time with my friends 92. To me it feels very much like a 1911. I like that, I broke it down cleaned and oiled it up, I never had my hands on one till now and in seconds I had her apart. Seems very well built and user friendly. Are the new ones built just as good? I think he said this 92 is 18 or 20 years old. Can't wait to shoot it. Oh big question is the 100 going to be a major difference over the 92? Thanks Tom

    my pt92 is from 1989, the pt100 is from 1991 or 92.... i cant tell you if the new ones are of the same quality, i dont own one..... altho i do own a 2000 pt22 aqnd it works just as well..... i like the taurus warranty and have used it for a cosmetic issue even tho it was specifically excluded, taurus sent me a NEW pistol.

    i am a happy owner.... i added aftermarket adjustable sights to both guns so the 101 would be my choice at the prices you stated....

    the only difference in my two is that the pt100 has a decocker/safety and the 92 has a traditional safety..... other than that, same gun

    That 92 is a real nice shooting gun. I'm used to my cz's shooting a bit to the right for me and the 92 is dead on! I had to relearn. after 10 rounds I was right on center from 12 yards. I am looking forward to getting one. That place thats selling them at that price is cdnnsportsinc if you know anyone who is also looking for one.

    Thanks. I trust word of mouth recommendations over anything else.

    So i'm all set to order the pt101 and I go to the local range to buy some .45 brass and low and behold they got a mint pt92. They want 399.00 for it but will only budge to $375.00 plus tax. The pt101 new with shipping and transfer works out to the same. The 92 has no box or paperwork but thats no big deal. Just might be a smart thing to go with the 92 as I have 3 other 9mm and 1000 plus cases to reload, I did want a .40 though any advantage having the .40?

    I have a tanfoglio 75 (cz75 clone) it came with both 9mm and .40 barrels and so far if I shoot 9mm+P ammo I see NO difference between the 2 different calibers.YMMV

    seriously, i have the 92 AND the 100, there isnt any difference i can see except that i have less rounds in the 40 and it cost more to shoot.... there are all sorts of recoil and muzzle velocity and wound cavity crap out there and none of it means a thing if you shoot the bad guy in the forehead.

    Thanks Ted i'm gonna look at that 92 again. At this point the 92 is lookin like the gun i'm gonna get at this time. I can always get a 100 or 101 down the road. As far as the bad guys my Dan has something sweet for them LOL.

    True. A well placed .22 LR bullet will do more to help you out against the criminal than a poorly placed .45 ACP.

    So I went back to look at the 92 and took it down. Boy the thing is like new has 3 mags 2 don't look like anythings been run through them, and best yet it's the decocker version AF-D. I asked if they could do a little better on price but he had to get $375 for it. So we did the paperwork and the state police in VA always put me on hold! Stupid I have a ccw permit. They told me the state police cut back on the people to review the ones that the computer kicks as delay. The owner told me he has with me 6 delays one since last Friday! I thought they had 24 hours time frame? So I told him I was gonna pick through the empty cases for some more .45acp he gave me a bucket and said fill it up on the house since I could'nt do better on the gun! Spent an hour pickin 10 pounds of .45. So that was a great deal! now I hope I don't have to wait all week for the new (to me) gun. Thanks for all the help Tom
