It shoots bullets. I shot the .45 and it was terrible... it jammed like 3 times in 20 rounds, it was completely terrifying honestly. One round didn't even fire, but the pin hit the primer all half assed. I took the round out and put it in my 1911 and pulled the trigger and bang.... Overall I really didn't like that gun, it couldn't even tell where the hell my rounds were landing from 40 feet away. It is probably the only handgun that I just completely couldn't justify its purchase. My friend who owned the gun threw it on the ground to leave it but I made him go pick it up.

I haven't shot a millenium series but a few other taurus semi autos and have found that I cannot stand them or hit the target with them even at 7 yards. I have shot Sigs, Glocks, CZ's and Berettas and I love them. Very reliable, very accurate and very well built. I am afraid I can't say that about Taurus semi autos... I would like to try one of their revolvers though as they are cheap alternatives.



Looking for sponsorships for 2010 on the car above... PM for details and schedule.

I'm a mod motor GOD! LOL!

I had the PT-145. I could shoot a hole the size of a pack of smokes at 7 yards. It's a decent carry-sized .45. A lot of people still carry them.

I had one in a 40, and it was a great gun. Never had a single issue.

It's easy enough on you that it's fun to shoot as a range gun, yet it's compact enough to be a daily carry. The Millennium Pro series is suffering from its bad rap from the early versions. Make sure you get a current gen one and you're golden.

buddy of mine has a .40 24/7 Pro and it seems to be a great gun. I would have to agree with the statement that it is pretty accurate! I have been thinking of finding a 24/7 pro in a .45 as well.

I have a millenium pro PT-145 and have never had a single jam out of thousands of rounds. It's not the absolute most accurate gun, but it's not terrible either. Changing the sites will work wonders. Definitely worth the 300.

It's one of my favorite guns to shoot just because it's so simple.

I've shot several Taurus'. They would shoot anything you threw at them. My bro has the millinium pro in .40 and no problems with it either.

I think we need to get all of you together and you can shoot the millennium pro .45 my friend has. We'll see who the men are.

I bought the Mill Pro 9mm for my wife and have not had any issues with it. For the price I found it to be a decent price....

Well in that case, let me know when you are going to the range to shoot a new gun.
