    Like anything man makes it can malfunction once in a while.

    You indicated that you've fired 2500-3000 rounds through it without any problems that to me indicates plenty of reliability.
    They replaced the firing pin and said not to shoot reloaded ammo through it and to clean it after every time I shot it.

    I didn't use reloaded ammo and cleaned it every time I got it back. I guess it needed a better cleaning but I don't want a gun I get to break all the way down to clean it every time. I try to shoot at least once a week.

    FWIW, Taurus include that note about reloads/cleaning on every "repair" receipt I've ever seen or heard of. Seems to just be a standard disclaimer whether or not it really applies.

    My friend has a PT145 and loves it as well. Maybe I got a bad egg!

    The only complaint I have had about my pt140pro is the long trigger pull. I can't shoot it as well as some of my others. It was my carry gun for a long time. I never have had an issue with it. No ftf, fte, anything. Please don't tell Taurus, but I have shot many reloads through it. :)

    I have heard the same thing. Always blame reloads and cleaning on every issue, never admit to just having a bad egg in the basket.

    --- Some of the friendliest people I have ever talked to are gun owners and shooters and according to the gun activists we are the mass murders and felons of the nation???

  8. I had a taurus 357 snubby that would heat up after about 20 rounds and lock up. 38's fired fine even when hot. I took a feeler gauge to the cylender and found alot of differance in clearance around frame. Light stoning to release some metar and all was fine. The problem is One of quality control. Gun was a monday made gun.
