    CAM00173.jpg Thought I had figured out a way to make my favorite .40 choke-it's a 24/7 OSS DS I bought off my son 2yrs ago,it was made for 1yr near as I can tell.We've put about 5k through it,every bullet type-just feeds it.Last night I took 10 175grSWC and cut tip off and made wadcutters and 5 of same bullet backwards,loaded them with usual amount of 231.Tried it today and the darn thing just put them out like poop through a goose.One of my favorite handguns-Novak sights,light rail,5.25" barrel with DS capability from factory.My only dislike is 40$ mags but I've got 5 and if that don't get it done,it's my fault......Only bad part of todays shooting-stepping in the equine crap barefoot.

    I think you get luck of the draw on Taurus. My PT-100 .40 cal was okay, but it wasn't every accurate. Sold it and used the money for a CZ75 PCR. :)

    My PT111 G2 9mm is doing great so far! 500ISH round count so far.

    The PT-140 of mine has 1000+ rounds of various ammo through it and operates just fine.

    My daughter got a Millennium Pro to choke on the first and every following round. She was limp wristing. She did not have any problem with my Sig 239 or 229 though.
