Shell casings were caught in midair...

Cool. How you liking it? How many rounds through? I have the PT145 in SS. 200 Rounds. The only fails were I think two stove pipes when friends were shooting, and one fail to feed. I shot about 170 of the rounds with no problems. Not forgiving to limp-wristers.

Edit - Were these pictures reversed left/right? The ejection port, indicator, safety and slide lock is on the wrong side. Or is this a left handed model that I have never seen?

Good catch, yes the pics got reversed somehow in the process of moving it to the laptop to the iPad.

I've put about three hundred rounds through this now and a lot more scheduled next month going through a defense course. The gun has been a dream with no failures. None!

I've had a hard time getting the sights right for me. Shoots fine at the closer distances, of course.. But the further distances are rough.

I almost got that PT145! Bet you are loving that! But this gun is just great; It goes everywhere with me now, even when I carry the Cougar 8045.

Nice pics, I carry a PT111 Pro as my conceal (Uncle Mikes IWB size 12 holster), it's a nice gun for the money. Like you said, it is accurate enough at close range, definitely not a match gun.

Mine has a few thousand threw it, no problems... I don't forsee any either. Not a lot of wear on the slides or anywhere for that matter like some other Semi auto handguns I have dealt with.
