Wife gave me a Taurus PT145 for Christmas. It would make a good concealed carry piece. It's compact. I haven't shot it yet and I was just wondering what kind of experience someone else had had with one of these. I have never owner a compact 45. Just wondering if it might shoot better in a 9mm.

These Taurus autos make great concealed carry guns

I own a PT140 in .40 S&W myself, and love how easy it is to conceal. The PT 145 is only a few oz heavier, but I think you should still find it to be easy to pack. The pistol dimensions are about the same. Did your wife get you the full size or compact model? The full size has a 10 round mag, while the compact has a 6 round mag.

The gun handles really well in my opinion. Recoil is sharp, though, due to the light weight of my gun. I would recommend adding a Hogue Handall Grip Sleeve. It works just fine, with a little trimming. Makes shooting the gun more enjoyable.

Taurus guns are not the more accurate pistols in the world. But then again, this type of gun is not meant for target shooting. Mine has never had any kind of problem in digesting any ammo I have tried in it. It is super reliable.

Here is my Taurus PT140 Pro:

Here is a newer pic, showing the Hogue Handall installed

Here is a pic of my Taurus with the Hogue Handall installed. It is next to my full size Glock 17, to help illustrate how compact it is.
