    On the Taurus Millenium Pro, 9mm. :wiggle:

    Friend of mine got one awhile back, and I loved the feel of it, and the way it shot.. not to mention a 12+1 with a 3-1/4" length :bowdown:

    Did the CCW test that they use here (12 rounds at 3, 7, and 12 yards, plus a distance greater than 3 yards of your choosing).. shot 50 rounds total, gun performed great. I wanted to do the CCW test way, just to see how well I would do on it. The guy that works at the store I bought it at & who teaches the class confirmed I'd pass with shooting like that, so I'm going to class on the 18th of this month :run:

    I hate breaking in new magazines though.. stiff-ass springs ftl.

    $329 cash price. It's about average, from what I've seen.

    Gun came with a case, extra mag, cleaning brush, manual, and two small keys on little keychains.. they fit into a small mechanism on the back part of the slide, and will lock it into place, preventing the gun from being fired. I think it can also lock the mag in place.. I'm not sure.

    For the size, carrying capacity, and the safety, I found it to be a great deal. It shoots very nicely too.. the grip is a little larger than, say, a Glock 26, and it fit my hand very nicely.

    Only downside I'm seeing so far is lack of aftermarket.. I haven't seen any IWB holsters or other goodies yet. I figure it'll just be a little while longer til they start popping up.

    EDIT: It's also worth mentioning that I'm left-handed, and shoot left-handed.. the mag release is reversible to accomodate lefties, But you're SOL on the slide release & safety. Even with that, it's still not that hard for me to operate everything. I've been practicing safety off/on, and slide/mag release all night (unloaded). It's starting to feel comfortable.

    I have one of those also and I hate it..

    It is a bitch for me to get the barrel, slide, and pin all aligned..

    So if anyone wants to buy it. . .

    ;)
