In another thread the question was asked:


Does anyone know of any good dealers [who can spend some time with me] and show me the difference between G19 / G26 / Tarus PT 145?

I can't help with the dealers part of the question.

Here is help with the different Glock models.

And on the Taurus Millenium Pro which carry the 145BP designation:

Which maybe differnt than the PT145:
http://hunting.about.com/library/weekly/aasttauruspt145.htm

The Taurus has an active external safety.
The Glocks are all internal "safe-action" safeties.

Glock 26 is subcompact model.
Glock 19 is compact model.

Taurus Millenium PT 145 is similar in size to the Glock 26. Both are about 6" long with 3.25" barrels.
The Glock 26 and 19 are 9mm.
The PT145 is .45 Auto.
Both hold 10 cartridges.

The trigger on Glock is better than on the Millenium Pro in my opinion.
Both are disassembled easily.

Dear Steven,

I am in learning process; my knowledge about Handguns is limited.

After going through the post I really liked Taurus Millennium PT 145. Itís easily available and quite cheap as compared to Glock.

I saw a video on youtube regarding Taurus Millennium PRO PT145 safety flaw

Please advise.

@ Shano Shah,

If you are contemplating buying a PT 145 Pro, I suggest you try it out first at the range, both models, the DAO one as well as the DA/SA one, and then decide which one you want to go for. Both are available within the range of 53k to 60k in LHR. (+5k in KHI)

Dear StevenCline

I have indeed spotted the thread! Most informative.

You have given me much to read!

If the PT145 is .45 then I am unable to purchase it on my 9mm licenceÖ

I thought last line above was your signature! :lol:

Anyhow, no problems at all, you can have a .45 on your 9mm license, no issues here, they're same category! :)

That's great! Was not aware.

The only remaining decision is either Golck 26 or PT145!

Half of me wishes that PT145 was not in the same category ))))). How do I justify spending twice four times as much on glock in comparison to PT 145....... ))))

Are both are reliable?

Between Glock and Taurus, there's no comparison as such, else than they both fire well! Choice is about bucks only! :)

Wow!

That is a serious issue. Here are my thoughts:

1- This should be fixed immediately. It is a huge liability for Taurus.

2- There is a safety rule that says you never substitute a mechanical safety for other safety rules (like not pointing the gun at anything you aren't prepared to destroy, and always keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot).

This safety flaw will only create disaster for the person who ignores the two safety rules that would cause injury or death without the safety flaw.

IF you don't point the gun in an unsafe direction and you keep your finger off the trigger you can't have the shot which causes injury or death.

Regardless of that...

3- I would never own this gun with that safety flaw.

You never use a malfunctioning gun. You unload it. You leave it unloaded until it is fixed by a knowlegable and trustworthy gun-smith.

Absolutely agreed.
