    taurus

    I just bought a Taurus 145 pro. It shots just a little low but functions very well has anyone had any problems after long use? I have only put about a 100 rounds through it.

  3. I don't have what you have but, I have a revolver a model 617 to be exact and I love it. I think Taurus makes a good product for the money.

    So do I.

    Got a PT92 from Taurus myself and have nothing but nice things to say. Couple thousand rounds through mine, only failures I've had were attributed to me (limp-wrist) or during the first 150 or so (break-in). Any failures (usually FTE) were remedied with "Tap, Rack, BANG." Been a LONG time since I had any failures of any kind. (Total failures < 5).

    Seriously considering their 1911 clone to get started on those in an inexpensive way.

    Your probably using the old sighting picture. With the Heinie sights you have to place the front dot over the bull, then bring the rear dot up to make a figure eight picture. I had the same problem until I was shown how to use Heinie sights. Now I can consistantly place my shots in the Bullseye at 15 yards. Try it.

    I had a 145 a couple a years ago. It had issues of light strikes and failure to eject with different brands of ammo. After a trip back (came back in worse shape), I got rid of it( full disclosure).

    I have the PT 745 Pro and love it. No problems with it and it hides easy in the crossbreed holster.

    PT140 Pro

    I've got a PT140 Pro that I've had for a handful of years. It was my EDC/FTC for 3 years. I've kept it clean and have never had a single problem with it. In fact, it's been dropped 3x now and still fires like it's right out of the box. This was my 2nd PT140. I bought a 1st generation PT140 and had a few FTE's and stovepipes during the 250-300 round break-in. No probs after that. Times got tough and I sold it. I later missed it and bought a new one, but a 2nd generation "Pro" model. The newer generation, the PT140 "Pro", was better than the 1st. There was no break-in period...it functioned beautifully from day one on the first shot. It's fired around 3,000 rounds now and still hasn't had a single problem, even after having been dropped.

    This year I finally bought a Springfield XD40, 4-inch. It's my EDC/FTC now, which I mainly carry openly. When I want to conceal, I still grab my PT140 Pro. 3,000 rounds without a single malfunction - I have no doubt as to its reliability in my mind. I hope you like yours.

    Actually - my ONLY complaint with it is the trigger system. The pull isn't quite as smooth as I'd like, and I don't like how long the trigger reset it. Minor detail and a matter of taste.

    BTW, my wife just got a Taurus 709 "slim" and we both love it so far. One of the two magazines kept ejecting upon firing. Sent it in to Taurus, and they sent me a new one about 2-3 weeks later. Haven't tried it yet but I'm confident it'll work fine. It's got an excellent trigger system! Wish my 140Pro had that trigger!
    Don't do anything you wouldn't want to explain to the paramedics...
