|I have been a customer of CTD for a few years now and after much research, I have decided to purchase this for my CCW. I was somewhat nervous about the process, but since I saw how other customers easily picked up their new purchases at the local CTD store, I decided to go for it. I was going to get the 745 (single stack, 6+1) but after looking at the dimensions, adding a fraction of an inch to get 10+1 with the 145 made a lot of sense. I was not disappointed. It shipped quickly, I was kept up to date by email, and the completion of the transfer at the McKinney, TX CTD store was very pleasant. Every person who works there is professional, knowledgeable and very kind to boot.
As for the gun itself, after cleaning the white goo they pack it in off and properly lubing it, I enjoyed several sessions at the range with only a few FTE's here and there, probably caused by my newly owning and shooting a .45. Beautiful gun. I plan on saving up for a DuoTone 1911.
Taurus makes an excellent, reliable and carefree weapon. It is very enjoyable to shoot. My hands feel great after a range session!
Buy one of these if you are considering it, you won't be disappointed.|
