About the Gun

Taurus Millennium Pro series pistols are manufactured with injection molded polymer frames, and blued carbon steel, stainless steel, or titanium slides. The Millennium Pro pistols offer many improvements over the previous 'Standard' Millennium models, but were introduced as enhancements to the originals, not to supplant them. Pro versions have now been released for nearly all of the 'Standard' Millennium models. Some features of the Pro line include optional increased magazine capacities, larger and easier to operate controls, a double action (DA/SA) trigger mechanism on some models with reduced trigger travel and an improved smoother and lighter trigger pull, an enhanced frame, and an improved more ergonomic grip design.

About the Cartridge

Designed by John Browning and introduced by Fabrique Nationale of Belgium, this cartridge has achieved world-wide acceptance and has even been adopted as the standard pistol cartridge by several governments. One reason for the round's success is that it is the largest practical cartridge that can be easily adapted to small automatic pocket pistols. Ballistics fall far short of even the 9mm Luger, but still prove adequate for most self-defense situations. The round has established quite a niche position in this role, often being chosen over more traditional small calibers such as the .25 and .32 Autos.
