    Got a PT145 today

    I got this earlier today, along with a Galco holster. It's not broken in yet and I probably won't have time to do so until January as I'm leaving on Monday for a week. However, I'll be bringing it along so that I can get used to carrying it. I've really been thinking for a long time about switching to .45 as my primary defensive caliber, and this is a big move in that direction.



    As a side note, while in the store I got the old "don't carry in the gun store" routine, and the guy at the counter gave a completely illogical explanation. Does anyone know where that thread is?

    Congrats. I have one as well and alternate carry with my Springfield EMP 9mm. This is a great little gun for which I have had not problems. One note, make sure not to limp wrist it, as it may stove pipe on you. I thought I may be having problems with it, as anyone else in my family that shot it, jammed it. Then I realized that they were not holding firmly. I have never had a problem. Once they fixed their grip, no more problems. I have put about 2000+ rounds through mine and it still performs like new.

    I read the same thread a while back, but can't remember where it it was. Sorry. Enjoy your new toy.

    Thanks for the tip. I look forward to taking it to the range as soon as I get the chance. I feel as though I get a good grip on it and it's very compact but still big enough to accommodate my entire hand.

    Congrats on the new gun and holster. It is always fun to get a new firearm. Once you have had time to get to the range let us know how it did.

    my pt111 doesn't see the light of day much, but it was a fun and reliable gun. Good choice.

    I thought rule # 1 was carry a gun.

    Excuse the double post. My computer is doing crazy stuff. Or at least I can blame the computer.

    Too many double taps at the range got you into a routine?

    Oh, yeah, Toreskha- nice addition. The Taurus PT145s don't stay on the shelf long here. And in Florida those signs mean less than the Push or Pull signs.
