    I own a 709 slim 9mm and a PT145. Both are perfect for carry, extremely accurate. Everyone goes out of their way to put the Taurus down, but I honestly chose my two carry pieces over my S&W for reliability.

    I went to the range today w/PT111 pro and never had so much fun!
    At 25 ft. I put 1 1/2 boxes throught it,115 gr.fmj and accuracy was
    about 3" low to start then the tight groups came.Practice will b better.
    What a nice gun! comfortable,affordable to shoot,accurate and conceals
    very well.I am pleased.Just need a handall grip sleeve for better feel.

    Semi-auto

    duke of Essex:

    Thanks for your post. What length barrel do the semis come in? I want something with knockdown power but also something fairly small and concealable. I am a PI and plan on going into Bounty Hunting. Since I got a carry concealed permit in 1971 (I think), I have always carried revolvers. The two I like best is my nickel S&W 2.5" barrel, Airweight, and my 3" Taurus 5 shot. I am old school and never trusted semis but I know times have changed and for my work I should have more shots.

    I want to thank the group in advance for your help and advice.

    Pt111

    Bikerboy:

    As I told you guys and gals, I don't know much about autos. May I ask what ammo does the PT111 take? 9 Mil?

    Are they expensive? I have noticed that quite a few of you mentioned that model.

    Thanks.

    Dog the bounty hunter uses pepper spray, paint ball guns, and his wife Beth's huge breasts. What you need a gun for?

    Hi peye, I only know about the guns I have owned. The length of barrel for semi-auto's is all over the board depending on maker. if you are referring to the Taurus line of pistols, the best bet is to visit their website. Taurus International Manufacturing Inc
    I personally have a problem with small semi-auto pistols because my hands are very large. They go along with the rest of me, as I am 275lbs and 6' so I can hide numerous guns on my person without detection, the smallest being a Stoeger Cougar. Also the Taurus 608 comes in a 4" with 8 rounds of 357 magnum if you want more capacity in a revolver.
    Just remember that what you carry isn't as important as how you use it. Most encounters will be within 15-20 ft.or less. And if things really get hairy, I have a 9mm derringer for up close and personal. To the iceman I find your dry humor refreshing, you must be British. I notice your comic lines on most posts around here, and it is good to have someone like you to call us all out. Minnesota must be a breeding ground for talent such as yours! Keep up the great posts.

Not all shoot that well. I have guns that you'd have trouble hitting the broad side of a barn with, no matter how well you shoot. So, guy, keep laughing, and get out there and practice, practice, practice. Or better yet, find a good instructor that can help you reign in your groups, like I did and have a friend load you some high quality reloads. You might find you can shoot that well too. I have S&W Performance Center revolvers that will shoot that well too (just for your info). My Dan Wesson .414 Super Mag, well, I can plink soda cans all day long at 300 yards. So, laugh on...........I'd bet my life and my Taurus against your Beretta any day of the week. BTW, if you notice, there are a number of posters that have stated their Taurus will outshoot most of their other guns.
    I am sure you and your Taurus are everything you claim to be. Have a nice day.

    I know I really love my Taurus handguns.

    Dudeorific; can you please post up some video of your shooting? I'm sure we all would like to see it. Most of us come to forums like this for tips & insights that may improve or ability; you may be able to help.

    Some of us occasionally enjoy the entertainment value as well......

I was just trying to show that it didn't come easily or quickly. Lots of practice and training. Good instructors, etc. I am by no means a Jerry Miculek, but I'm proud of what I have achieved over the years. If I offended you, I'm sorry, no offense was intended.

Shooting without sandbags, 25 yards was a ragged hole. 50 yards opened up to 1 inch groups. At 200 yards, I was holding an 8 inch pattern. I would stake my life and reputation on a Taurus any day of the week. They have never been very particular about ammo put through them either.

    If you say so. I believe you. You should write Taurus. I want to see you in their ad's.
