    Umm... no offense, but do you have ADHD or something?

    Your question/comment/babble is kinda hard to read, bro.

    I agree--painful. Punctuation is your friend.

    I have a PT111 as myCC weapon. Ergo's are great, and it's prettier than an XD SC. It's a decent pistol for the price, but Taurus' quality control is spotty. Some people fire thousands of rounds without a problem. Others (like me) have something break and have to send it back to Miami for repair. The PT145s seem to be especially problematic. Feed problems are usually the result of magazines not seating properly or having bent edges.

    Most people find their Mill Pros shoot low and left until they adapt to the trigger. I think it's the trigger's overtravel which causes this tendency.

    Bottom line, it's an OK gun, but I won't be buying another one. No experience with the PT138 or the new 24/7 Compact, but the internals are all the same, so I'd expect similar results.
    Guns don't kill people. Drivers on cell phones do.

    If you have the PT 111 then you have no need to trade it for the .380 model. The 9mm is cheaper to shoot and the difference between the recoil isn't enough to worry about. Besides the 9mm is a more powerful round. I have a PT 111 and so far it has been perfect and I really like it. As for size unless you go to a P3AT or LCP or similar mouse gun you have about the smallest available.

    As for a .38 revolver shoot the PT 111 for a while then worry about a .38. Don't rush into anything.
