Actually The Ultra Lite line is one of the revolvers we've been looking at, only in a .38 special.
How do they perform?

This doesn't look like the Millennium Pro my dad has. His is all black and is a bit longer I think.

This one is 3rd generation, I don't know what gen his is.
Does his say Pro on the right side?

I'm not for sure which side it says Pro, but it does say it on the side. I'll have to look closely when I go over there next time.

I like my hammerless Ultra-Lite
It's very light, smooth enough for pocket carry and about as accurate as a teensy .38 can be.
Mine is DAO, the Little Woman's has a hammer and is SA/DA
+P in an ultralite will give you a thrill. :mrgreen:

From Taurusarmed.net
First Generation
The guns were marked only as Millennium
All were DAO

Second Generation
The guns were marked as Millennium Pro

Magazines were modified and will not interchange with First Generation models

Third Generation
The word "Pro" was moved from the left side where it read "Millennium Pro" to the right side where it reads "PT145 Pro"
The sights are dovetailed into the slide rather than screw mounted
The guns are now SA/DA rather than the traditional DAO

Oh, it's a PT111, the 9mm that is. I'm not sure about the .380, but they look identical.

I've got a PT-22 that looks just like yours. Mine's a genuine POS. It won't fire and when it fires it won't feed. WITH ... ANY ... AMMO !

Then, I've got an older PT-22 that is definitely my favorite Taurus. It is great fun to shoot. It likes any ammo -- except certain types of Aguila:

I like the older ones too, and yours is a good looker.
Ours is finally coming around.
When we first got it I couldn't hit a paper plate at 6 ft and it wouldn't feed half the rounds, but after shooting it a lot, it feeds pretty reliably now, and I can actually hit a paper plate.
It's a lot better gun now than it was, but I still don't care for it much.
We get it out when we go 22ing
