FMJ, I'm sorry you had such a bad experience with Taurus. They never should have held your gun that long each time, either. I had the same problem with a pistol sent back to Colt and I learned a couple of things:
1. Start calling the company 30 days after they receive gun, regardless of "backlog."
2. Get one person's name and extension to talk to every time you call, if possible.
3. The first time they repair it, it's their choice how it gets repaired. The second time it is sent in for the same problem, insist they REPLACE the part with a brand new one instead of repair. Most State Consumer Protection Agencies have rules regarding how many times a company can try to repair goods under Lemon Laws.
4. Make the company rep confirm everything said in a phone conversation with an email. No promises! If it isn't in writing, it wasn't said.

After seven months, Colt hated me and my client wasn't happy. It finally got done, but I learned to not let any company do it whenever they felt like it, nor make promises they weren't writing down. Know your state laws and use them to get what is your right under law. I don't believe Colt is a bad company, we just had a bad transaction. I have also returned Rugers, Springfields and S&Ws with expected results - fixed and returned with no problems.

As an aside, I own or have owned six Taurus handguns. Only one had to be returned, and to be honest, it was damaged due to owner error. I returned it to Taurus with the truth (that I damaged it) and not only did they repair it, they replaced the barrel and trigger with Match Grade parts! I was a cappy hamper and haven't had any problems with successive pistols.

Only pic I got, dont knock it ,that HiPoint is a beast , and darn accurate.

Ive had the PT145about 4 years, Lasermax mini laser works great.
Put tat red dot onraget, pull trigger.

The PT145 is concealable, and has some snap to it, but controllable.

Probably got 1000-1500 rnds and never had a problem.

I once had a Taurus. Sold it due to all the negativity surrounding the name. If you listen to enough of it, it gets in your head. In the end, I didn't trust it. Based solely on the stories I heard. I know, kind of weak on my part. Anyway, the gun ran fine. No issues. However, I did send it to FL once. A friend of mine dropped it, and dinged up the slide. It still worked fine, but, to err on the side of caution, I sent it to them to have it checked out. Return was less than 10 days. They replaced the slide without question. Of course, I was pleasant and patient with them and their CS reps. Sometimes a good attitude goes a long way.

In all honesty, I don't believe, despite their somewhat spotty reputation, that they would "hot glue a backstrap" on a cracked frame for support and send it back to anyone as fixed. Also, if you knew anything about Taurus at all, you would know that the 9mm version of the PT145 is the PT111 - both part of the Millennium series.

Now don't go freaking out calling me a fan boy. I don't even own one. I currently carry an XD. (Oh, and by the way, they are manufactured in Croatia.) But based on what I've read recently, I may eventually roll the dice again.

i have a PT-145 Millennium and a M-44 .44Mag. I have had no problems with either. Taurus firearms are hot & cold if you get a good one it's golden if you get a bad one it is a POS and the factory cant fix it.

just traded my pt145 for a 1911 the feed ramp on the barrel cracked. my gunsmith took it on trade but deducted $ off the trade price due to the crack and the fact that he will have to send it to Taurus for repair as they don't sell parts anymore.
