My New Purchase
    #380178 - 03/08/10 06:15 PM (6 years, 8 months ago)

It's a Taurus Pt145 Pro, 3rd Generation. 10+1 capacity .45 rounds.  Kick isn't too bad for a compact handgun. It's compact, but it's not too small. I like it.  Shot it at the range today, all shots were in a 4-5 inch grouping at about 10-15 yards. First time I ever shot a .45, not too bad.  I've got 10 free range visits, I'll definitely be going back soon. :yesnod:



Sorry the pic sucks so bad, cell phone, what can I say?

Very nice!

I've been playing around with a glock .45 but it's not very official or nothing.

Guns are awesome.

I really want a glock myself, I think their quality is 2nd to none, however, I do think they are just a bit overpriced. Taurus has had some problems in the past, but they produce quality handguns now that they purchased the Beretta factory or something like that. The past 10 years or so they've been producing quality firearms. I mean some cops carry them dude, if they're good enough for cops, I'll take it. Plus I got a lifetime warranty no questions asked. Bought some hollow points too :evil:

Yeah I got it for only 9 dollars over the MSRP too. The place was having a sale so it all worked out perfect.

Yea glocks are expensive.  The one I have dealt with came about in less than legal ways I do believe. :smirk:

But yea once I get some money together I want to get a handgun and get a concealed carry lisence.

:rofl:

Yeah I was tryin to avoid all that. I wanted something new so I didn't have to worry about where it came from and how many bodies it had on it. I shot a Glock 19 before and those are really good guns, but so far so good with this. I'll keep it clean and only put good ammo through it and see how it holds up. It's my first handgun, but I've shot them before as well as shotguns and rifles. No rocket launchers yet, the place didn't have one :sad:

dude i am sooooooo jealous.

A mossberg shotty is next in line for me...then a hand gun.

Shooting is so therapeutic. Other than the gym, it's prob one of the only things that alleviates stress for me.

nothing like un-loadin a few rounds...  :minigun:

That's a nice gun man.  It looks almost identical to the one my bro has (Taurus too).

His looks just a little bit longer than that one, like the regular 9mm size.  Yours looks just a little smaller, but I bet it is a nice gun.

My brother is weird, he thinks chaos is going to break loose soon so he has guns and a massive stock of ammo in case any shit goes down...

He has all kinds of illegal rounds, I wish I could go shooting w/ him sometime.  I might just get a little .22 handgun juuuuuust in case.

That's like saying beds cause babies.

Yeah there's some decent prices on some Mossbergs around here too. I almost bought one today, but no need for something that big. I've already got a shotgun. Just an old 410 but it does what I need it too. Probably be getting one some time in the next year or so though. Good prices on benelli's too.

And you're 100% right about it relieving stress.

You think that makes him weird?  I fully believe some shit will blow up in our life time and I sure as hell hope I am strapped and all my homies are too.

But you living in the middle of nowhere I think you should be fine.
