This PT-145 seems like a really nice piece. All components fit together quite nicely and the trigger feels really smooth. I just got it a couple days ago, so I haven't fired it yet. I can't wait to get to the range...maybe this coming weekend. It's a really nice size...compact, but large enough to fill my hand. It was on sale at budsgunshop.com for $299. That plus shipping and the $25 FFL transfer cost me a grand total of $339. Not too bad.
