I have put at least 1,000 rounds through this gun with no issues.
Guess I got lucky with this one.
It fits my hands great, and hits where I aim it.
The mag release button is sensitive, and will drop the mag with a light touch. I suggest holding one to see if you're one of those folks with a thumb that hits it while shooting.
The sites are all right for the intended purpose, but would be nice to have some that helped with better accuracy farther out than 15 yards.
All in all, glad I have it, looking forward to putting many trouble free rounds through it.

I love the size and I got this gun to carry as my Concealed Handgun after taking my CHL. When I took this PT145 pro Taurus millennium out to shoot it jammed the first time.
And every time I shoot it keep jamming I tried every bullet it recommended to use also tried some home refill bullets and that did not work.My husband clean it though that may help. I can't find anything that will make this gun stop jamming.Is anyone having this same problem the clip is 10+1 .
Any advice will help.

I am a retired infantryman of 24+ years, shoot 800+ rounds a month through pistols, compete and have a great knowledge of firearms. This gun is a replacement for my other that was stolen, original gun shot OK worked just fine with no issues. This gun is terrible can’t disassemble, pulling trigger feels like it was buried in sand, and accuracy is the worst I have ever had/shot. I have sent this pistol in for repairs and if there is no improvement I will dump it and get another from another manufacturer because I can’t rely on it for self defense.

Just got a chance to shoot the old girl today. Too much caffeine and 60-year old eyes complicated things but I am very pleased. It didn't like Winchester 230gr JHPs, hung up twice in a clipfull, but loved Rem-UMC hardball. I got a 2.5" 5-shot group at 15 yards, and offhand 25 foot,10-shot groups that I could cover with my hand. This is my fourth 45ACP (one revolver) and fourth autoloader (one 38ACP Colt 1903). This PT145 shoots as well as all but my rebuilt M911A1 Rem-Rand. Still won't beat my Ruger Redhawk 44Mag, 7.5", but not designed to. I am a happy camper...

Had gun roughly a week and put over 200 rds today! Target shooting at different distances and not once did it let me down! Comfortable grip, nice frame and not as much kick as i thought! Only problem is with me having big hands, i had to readjust my positioning due to the placement of mag release button! A couple times i accidently tapped mag release and caused misfeed! But upon find comfortable position, i put two full boxes of ammo (100 rnds) with no problem! Perfect for c/c purposes, handleable for size of gun with large caliber, fun to shoot, and quite reliable (considering when a misfeed occured, it was my fault for pressing mag release)from the amount of ammo put thru with absolutely no problem!! Perfect "bang for the buck" if you ask me!

after owning a cz75 all steel pistol i wanted something light yet with a real pucnh, i decided i wanted a 45. This gun did have a feed issue and i sent it to taurus-i got it back within a week fixed. it shoots very soft for a 45 and feels right in the hand. my only gripe is the sights. i don't care for the sight pic and wish tarus would come out with a replacement set that would be better--the other thing there is not much after market upgrades for these. overall it is very easy to shoot and has a great feel for a gun at this price. i am happy with the purchase.

I just purchesed this firearm and I got to say at first (before firing it) I was worried. However, after firing off only 1 box and having not 1 issue I have complete confidence in this weapon. All 50 rounds went into and out of the barrel without giving a second thought. I am also a huge fan of how the grip fits pefectly in my hand leaving no excess. The only complain a can say I have is I haven't fired it enough to get used to the trigger yet, I like the idea of it just haven't gotten the practice with it. A definate must have for anyone looking to carry a small, light firearm with serious punch.

I bought the gun to replace a Colt Officer's for the sake of weight. I find it to be extremely accurate!,1 hole groups at 15 yards. HOWEVER ... when loaded with 10 rds it always has FTE and FTF. Stove pipes and all sorts of problems. If I load only 8 rds, I do NOT have any problems.
I have several factory mags and it is the same with all of them. Sent it back to the factory but problem was never fixed. So ... I do not carry it on a regular basis. Find it unreliable.
Thanks for reading.

This is the most satisfying handgun purchase I've ever made (at least based on its performance to date...after firing several 50-round boxes through it without a single failure to load or fire). It's also the most comfortable to shoot - despite its small size and light weight for a .45 ACP - and most accurate .45 that I've ever fired; far better in both respects than the old USMC-issued Colt 1911 that I started out with over four decades ago, and noticeably better than several recent, larger, and much more expensive .45s that I've shot. The trigger is about as smooth, comfortable, and predictable to squeeze off as one can expect from a DAO pistol, I think! The grip is just long enough for me to get all fingers wrapped around it, for a very controllable grip. Oh! I love the sights, too! Nice sight picture! (I believe all those factors combined...i.e., secure grip that seems to be a perfect ergonomic fit for my hand, smooth-breaking trigger,flawless shell feeding, etc. ...really contribute to the exceptional accuracy I've enjoyed with this firearm. It's hard to find a CCW with .45 ACP (or equivalent) firepower, but this seems to be IT! So far, I haven't found a single disappointing thing about this pistol...including its bargain price for its quality in every category.

WAS SKEPTICAL AFTER VIEWING MANY MANY REVIEWS OF THIS PISTOL. ALSO WAS SKEPTICAL OF BUYING A LOW-COST GUN. CDNN SPORTS HAD A SALE ON TAURUS GUNS AND I JUST HAD TO GET IT. I HAD BEEN LOOKING FOR A 45 CCW FOR A LONG TIME BUT JUST DID'T HAVE A CLUE AND DID NOT WANT TO SPEND A 1000 AGAIN. HAD A COUPLE OF KIMBERS BUT SOLD THEM AS NEEDED THE MONEY----LOVED THEM BUT I WAS NERVOUS ABOUT CARRYING BECAUSE OF TOO MANY CONTROLS TO MESS WITH. WANTED IT TO BE SIMPLE AND EASIER TO OPERATE. KIMBER IS A GREAT RANGE GUN BUT HAD TO MAKE THAT DECISION. ONLY MY OPINION. THE MILENNUIM PRO HAS NOT GIVEN BE ONE PROBLEM AFTER AROUND 400 ROUNDS. ONE THING I DID DO WAS TO CLEAN IT EXTENSIVELY WHEN I GOT IT AND IT TOOK ME A WHILE BECAUSE OF ALL THE COSMOLINE GREASE IT WAS PACKED IN. ALSO TOOK SOME 600 GRIT SANDPAPER THAT I USE ON MY POOL CUES AND WORKED THE INSIDE RAILS AND ALL SHARP EDGES OF THE INSIDE OF THE GUN JUST A LITTLE. THE FEED RAMP WAS PERFECTLY POLISHED SO I LET THAT ALONE. I AM NOT A GREAT SHOT BUT WAS ABLE TO BE MORE ACCURATE WITH THIS PISTOL THAN I WAS WITH MY KIMBERS. I ALSO HAVE AN FN 45 ACP W/15 ROUND MAGS AND IT IS A GREAT GUN ALSO BUT I AM STILL AS ACCURATE WITH THE TAURUS AT ABOUT 25 TO 50 FEET. SO FAR I COULD NOT BE HAPPIER WITH THIS GUN AND IT FEELS AS GOOD IN MY HAND AS MY KIMBERS USED TO FEEL. HOPE THIS HELPS WITH YOU DECISIONS.UQ1WM

I have been shooting handguns since 15, over 50 years ago. I have a Remington 1911 circa WWII purchased 35 years ago; I did not know how to clean and lube it for a long time, which it requires. Though a fine gun, it is older than I am, and should not be expected to perform like a brand new Wilson Combat. After consideration, I purchased a first generation PT145 at a really good gun dealer, trading for it a PPK which I had had for many years; a .380, it had little punch, terrible trigger, etc., but I like the James Bond image, I guess. It jammed horribly with HP ammo, and smiths could do naught with it; I wanted a reliable weapon. If it will not always go "bang" then accuracy, firepower, size, looks, etc. mean nothing. I considered a 9mm, but the ergonomics of the 45 Taurus were perfect for me from the start; in addition it carries 11 rounds, has a manual safety, and a fine price. Over time, I have thought of trading or replacing it, but have no real reason to do so; when I take my time, its 3.25" barrel is quite accurate for its intended distance, and carrying one is much easier than a 1911 with a 5" barrel. Also, being DAO, with a manual safety, it gives me more confidence than a Glock which has a fingernail size "safety." The 145 is easy to clean, but go to youtube for a video because reassembly can be very tricky. I did have one major problem for the last couple of years that almost made me give this one up: failures to feed increased to every other shot. I thought it a magazine problem, or my inability to clean and lube properly. Then I found a chip of the grip had almost fallen from the weapon, a quality-complaint from early buyers; I sent the weapon to Taurus for that repair, mentioning the FTF almost as an after thought, suggesting another magazine from another series. I was told by Taurus that my barrel had numerous burrs in the barrel, which evidently accumulated dirt and debris that resisted cleaning, and made feeding more and more problematic. The gun was returned in 10 or so days with a new grip and new barrel. I have had not one glitch in feeding since then and I shoot quite a bit; I have complete confidence in its reliability, but practice with the trigger pull is necessary, as with any weapon. The trigger pull is long and requires aforementioned practice, but with practice and maintenance, this weapon is an excellent CCW. I would not try anything in +p or +p+ or juiced ammo; if you hit with a 45 230 grain HP and that does not work, shoot over your shoulder and run for a 12 gauge.

The only problem I have had with the gun was the clip wouldn't stay in the gun after the first shot. Sent it back, which only took a week before I got it back, and the factory explained there were two different clips made for the PT145 and I had received the wrong one. I haven't had a problem since getting it back. One thing that is causing me a problem is the trigger irritates the tip of my shooting finger from the recoil. it has a sharp edge at the bottom of the trigger and after a box of shells being shot through it I have a small blister on my finger. I do really like the carry capabilities of the PT145 Millinium Pro and recommend it to anyone looking for a .45 cal pistol.

I fired it for first time two weeks ago. the clip kept popping out and a round jammed in port frequently. I pushed the mag release, and the mag release mechanism fell out in my hand. I sent it back for repair, and got it back a few days ago. They replaced the mag release and adjusted the barrel ramp. I fired it again two days later, and had a new failure. the mags would not release, and I had to really push it hard, and when it did release, the mag release fell out in my hand again. The accuracy leaves a lot to be desired. I have owned and shot many pistols and all calibers, and am a very good shot. This one just doesn't measure up to an average standard either in accuracy or dependability. I will be returning it to taurus this week for the second time. I will say they have been extremely accomodating in their repair efforts, but this is the first pistol I have ever had to return to the manufacturer for repair. I am having second thoughts about depending on this weapon to perform with any consistancy. If I had to do it again, I would go with another manufactuerer.
