Also from the owner's manual:
CARRY CONDITIONS
Magazine full
Round in the chamber
Hammer full cock
Safety “off”
The following describe the only three conditions in which you should
carry your metal frame Taurus Pistol (Pistol). While your Pistol is safe to
carry in all three conditions, they are ranked in order from most
dangerous to least dangerous. You must decide which condition is
best for your personal needs and skill level.
Condition 1
Magazine full
Round in the chamber
Hammer full cock
Safety “on”
Known as “cocked and locked” the pistol is in its most ready condition.
The pistol will fire when gripped in the hand, the manual safety is
flipped “off” and the trigger is pulled.
Condition 2 (a)
Magazine full
Round in the chamber
Hammer down/decocked
Manual safety “off”
Condition 2 (b)
Magazine full
Round in the chamber
Hammer down/decocked
Manual safety “on”
The pistol will fire when gripped in the hand and the trigger is pulled or
the manual safety is off and the trigger is pulled. When using the
decocking lever, the hammer falls to the intercept position.
Condition 3
Magazine Full
Chamber empty
Hammer down /decocked
Manual safety “off”
The pistol will fire when gripped in the hand, the slide is pulled to the
rear and released and the trigger is pulled. When using the decocking
lever, the hammer falls to the intercept position.

Default Thanks for the info on the ProMag fix.

Like all fitting you can always take more off but you can't put it back. I got a barsony iwb holster and I love it. Tried to get the king tuk but not available for that model. If you have any questions about your mags let me know
I really appreciate it. I am going to buy a good chainsaw file this weekend and work on them. I had noticed that the holes on the Promag clips weren't exactly the same as the factory mags but, since I had used the ProMags once or twice with no problems, I was thinking that it had to be something inside the mag well of the pistol that had worn down.
Thanks again for the remedy.

If you look in the owners manual it states the PT945 has a spring operated transfer bar/hammer block. When you pull the trigger in DA a spring pulls the transfer bar down so the gun can fire. There is even notation in the safety section about how stupid it is to disable the transfer bar.

I had the same problem. Remember to get a file where the teeth run all the way to the end otherwise you'll have to cut it and that metal is hard
