I got one it's not bad but I have small hands and doesn't fit quite right. Of course the trigger pull is a little long but nothing that a little practice wouldn't fix. I'm not the greatest shot with a handgun(not that great with a long arm)but (there's that word again) the accuracy ain't too bad. For concealed not a bad idea.

Had one, one of the few guns I am glad I got rid of.

The thing has a tremendous trigger pull making it hard to be accurate and darn near immpossilbe for female shooters to hope to shoot accurately.

When I dis-assembled it the first time I got it almost hopelessly jammed.

We tried to save a few buck and got this instead of a Glock26. We bought the Glock26 the next tday. I eventually sold it a co-worker, he bought despite all the bad talk about it. I told him that I warned him when I took his money. Last I heard, he sold it to and also determined it to be a POS.

This was just my experience; however.

Stay Away! I had a PT140 and it was a total POS. I put one magazine through it and decided right then and there that I didn't want it any more. I had 3 light primer strikes out of 10 rounds. The trigger is long, heavy and rough. Lots of people at The Firing Line are reporting frame breakage.

Not a good idea. I've also read reports of frame cracks on other forums, and the trigger felt like a train wreck on the one that I tried.

On the other hand, I'm still pissed at myself for getting rid of the Kel-Tec P11 that I used to have. Smaller, lighter, and better balanced than the Taurus, and about $50-100 cheaper, usually. The trigger was on the heavy side, but butter smooooooth on the one that I had. There's also plenty of accessories out there for it, such as a pin-on belt clip, and it can use S&W 59 and 69 series hi-caps.

I miss mine! [>(]

On your advice I've switched over to a Sig 239.

Y'all saved me on this one.

Now for my punishment...

I second the vote for the KelTec P11.
Much better than the Taurus Milleneum both for shootability and carry ergonomics.
Try pulling the trigger on the Taurus and you'll see what I meen..
