Any comments pro, and con appreciated, as I've invited him to look at this thread AND to join our community.
Its an incredible value for the money especially how loaded with features it is out of the box (stippling, loaded chamber indicator on top, external safety) but its not perfect.
The trigger pull is a bit too long BUT its pretty smooth.
I still sometimes get a failure to chamber on loading a new magazine.
I shoot 2 Taurus regularly.. one does it 30% of the time unless I hold the gun sideways during reload...
A Smith M&P9C or a equivalent size Glock would not have this issue. BUT they also cost 2-3 times as much and even lack some of the PT111 G2s features that I like.
The Gun is not perfect but for the money I dont see anything its equal.
PS: Especially if your buddy can get it for 150 !, wow.. just the ammo for a full day of pistol training can cost as much
