Range Report - Taurus PT 1911

Good day all,

I picked up my first 1911 the first part of March. I love this gun. It is the most accurate that I have. My range ammunition is Federal Champion 230 grain FMJ from Walmart.

I got my CPL last October and bought my first Taurus (a PT 111) shortly after that. I had not shot a handgun since my military days 20 years ago. Even though these targets might indicate I have not lost many skills in 20 years, I hope to get better.

I've owned three PT1911 and they were good guns. Mine were also very accurate. My first one was obtained when I also had a Colt Gold Cup. The Taurus shot rings around it. I traded the Colt off and kept the Taurus. I put a few thousand rounds through the three and they all did anything I expected. Don't really know why they get such bad press on the web. One came from the factory with a firing pin "hole" machined too large that allowed primer flow into the enlarged hole (bulged primers). However, Taurus replaced the pistol with no problem but the wait (somewhat slow ie a few weeks).

My first 1911 was a PT1911...i've owned 3 others since...2 Springfields and my current RIA, and I will admit, that it was the best shooter out of all of them....regretfully, I sold it to a buddy of mine to fund one of the mentioned Springfields......he loves it! Was also his first.
