i'd recommend a goole search. check out gunbroker.com. I have one but mine is the millenium pro. I believe I paid $329 for it NIB about 4 years ago. what are they asking for it? how many mags? how many rounds through it? which finish is it? does it come w/ a holster?

Just do your homework. There's always another handgun coming down the pike, so don't feel rushed into anything. Questions to ask yourself would be:

Have you shot that Taurus before?
Do you like how it feels?
What's the purpose of this handgun gonna be?
Do you like double action only shooting?

THe pt111's, i'd not pay more than about $300 including ammo.

I see the various pt models at a local gunshop used for around the 250-280 neighborhood depending on the model.

Locally here in Birmingham, AL, Taurus Millennium models in all calibers run $250-285 or so used in all available calibers. I used to own a 9mm Millennium Pro and it functioned flawlessly, but I never liked the Heinie Straight 8 sights.

Had a Millenium Pro 45. It was a good reliable pistol, 10+1, compact. Accurate. Did what I wanted but traded for another Glock 45...

Sort of the same here; I used the 9mm Millennium Pro for concealed/carry, but I wound up bartering it for some legal services and estate planning. When I got the coin, I picked up a Glock 30 and didn't look back. Don't get me wrong because I'm not a Taurus auto-pistol snob because I've had good service with the two I've owned, but the Glock was just what I wanted more.

Good call. I think I paid about the same price. My "daily" carry.

the pro 111 is a low cost gun. 350.00 on the high side new, extra mags @ 12 round style, and the hard case. Used, knock off 100.00 for good condition .
With this gun, Most importantly, know what your buying. they are inherantly NOT accurate. 25 yards is pushin it, and thats a 6 inch group. I carry one every day, my CC gun. It works, but it is an up close and personal gun. Second reason i carry it, it goes 'bang' even when filthy dirty, covered in house paint, and loaded with sand and lint.

I've owned a PT-111 Pro for several years. I paid $329.00 for it new. Mine is accurate enough as I can bounce coke cans on the ground out to and beyond 25 yards or so. Maybe the loads your using aren't in agreement with the pistol you own.

This pistol also works well with Mec-Gar Sig P226 15 round magazines. The Sig mags extend below the pistol which actually helps accuracy. The longer mag makes it easier for me to grip but then I have large hands.

The Mil Pro G2 9mm has a horrible trigger, sold it quick.

I have a PT-745 was my carry until last week (got a Kimber ultra TLE II). Payed about 350 new for it. It is a dependable gun easy to carry and fits my hand well but has a very long trigger pull (the only reason I upgraded). I would guess the 9mm is a very similar gun (same 3mile trigger pull) if you can you should shoot it first to see what you think. For a price I would think around 275 would be fair.

My Taurus pt140 has earned my trust. I have put thousands of rounds through it (every kind of ammo I could find) and it has gone bang every.single.time. Shoots straight and shoots every time. All I want in a gun.

You might want to have the pistol looked at if it has that bad accuracy at 25 yards OR take some shooting classes, They are not expensive but they are darn good shooters.
