    I have a neighbor who has one. He likes it, but I haven't fired it yet. Maybe I'll get to go to the range with him next month.

    Considering the trigger pull on most of the taurus dao pistols I've felt,I would have to choose a springfield xd over taurus.

    I had one of the first generation (non-pro) and it was a really good pistol. The trigger was not great, but it was very reliable and reasonably accurate. I traded it away, but would like to have another one. Easy to conceal, also. The early ones had some frame cracking problems, but I never had a problem with mine.

    On the plus side, Taurus has a true lifetime warranty on all their handguns these days. They have completely re-tooled their manufacturing, going to CNC, and they have greatly improved their product line in the process.

    On the negative - they are fighting up hill against the market share they shunned previously.

    I have fired the PT-1911 and was very impressed, especially for the price. I have read several reviews of their products which have been positive, so I would lean towards this being a good purchase.

    If you can get a good price, I think you can probably safely put down the coin knowing that the company is going to stand behind their products.

    My brother has the 9mm and the .45. I've shot both. I love them. Comfortable in hand and they are dead on. The trigger pull is not bad. Now my question is can you hook me up and get me one at your deal?

    Found a thread contemplating this very question:

    "It seems the 2 models are pretty much identical in size. According to their website:

    TAURUS PT24/7-PRO "COMPACT" | MILLENNIUM PRO PT POLYMER PISTOL

    Barrel Length: 3.33" ............................................... Barrel Length: 3.25"
    Length: 6.375" ....................................................... Length: 6.125"
    Width: 1.25" .......................................................... Width: 1.25"
    Height: 5.5" ........................................................... Height: 5.125"
    Frame: Large .......................................................... Frame: Medium
    "

    This Thread is where I found the info and might be worth following the discussion if you are interested.

    Thanks JD, From what I can gather from that thread, the 24/7 has beefier components which make it heavier. The 24/7 may have improved magazine retention and it has a rail for accessories. As minimal as the size/weight differences are, I may go with a 24/7 over a Millenium Pro.

    That was pretty much what I got out of the discussion as well Texan.

    I am afraid I haven't played with either of them enough to form an opinion. I handled them at SHOT, but I was more or less playing with everything I could get my hands on, so I can't say I was looking for anything special until it hit my hands and "felt" different.
