    I saw that Academy has a Taurus PT-111 9mm on sale tommorow for $229. Looks like a good deal... can anyone tell me anything about this gun. I'm not familiar with them, but dont want to pass on this if it is a really great deal...
    :confused:

    I used to own one. I only encounter a few jams during brake in after the brake in (200+ rounds) the gun performed flawlessly. I also like the fact that it comes with a built in lock. The gun is very light and it feels good in the hand... Is grate gun for concealment and for the price you cant beet it. Remember in the Pistol industry you get what you pay for.

    I used to own a Taurus...like a million years ago.
    Never hear anything bad about them. Just dont know anyone with THIS gun...
    $229 is really cheap for a new 9mm of any quality.

    DFW area.....Wylie.
    I have one that I was planning to sell.....I guess I better hang on to it. Who would give me $200 if they can get a new one for another $20?

    I have enjoyed it. The disassembly pin on mine broke, I called Taurus and they just sent me a new one. Mine is a first generation unit (Titanium slide and night sights), I think they are on generation 3 now. I polished the friction surfaces (very easy to do with titanium, since it doesn't need any coatings for protection) and tweaked the trigger. It shoots great.

    If you are in the market for a compact 9mm, I say go for it.
