Finding that "perfect" concealed carry holster is almost a never ending quest for individuals who carry concealed. Most people go through a series of holsters in a trial and error process trying to find the perfect combination of comfort and concealment.

In most cases, handgun owners end up with the proverbial "box of holsters" that end up sitting around without being used.

Concealed Carry With the Taurus PT Millennium Pro

Introduced to the market by Taurus Manufacturing in 2005, the Millennium Pro model was intended to be an upgrade over the standard Taurus Millennium series. Like the Millennium series, the Pro series was specifically designed to target the civilian concealed carry, self defense, and law enforcement markets.

The Millennium Pro is a striker fired, double/single action handgun with a polymer frame. Taurus is now offering the slides in a blued model, stainless steel, and the new titanium (designed to further reduce weight). The Millennium Pro series is produced in a .380, 9mm, .40 cal. S&W, and .45 ACP calibers. Regardless of the handgun caliber, all Mill Pro weapons a double stack magazine. The magazine capacity varies between 6 and 12 rounds, depending on the handgun model and specific caliber.

The Millennium Pro is generally considered the 3rd generation of the Taurus Millennium series. While each of the generations looks similar, they are fairly different. However, the largest differences can be found in the Mill Pro series as compared to the first two generations. The Millennium Pro model has a number of enhanced features including a higher magazine capacity, lighter frame, more ergonomic grip, loaded chamber indicator, integrated accessory rail.

From a holster perspective, nearly all the PT Millennium Pro series are built on the identical frame (PT-111 Mill Pro, PT-140 Mill Pro, PT-145 Mill Pro). As such, most any pistol holster for any of these models will fit any of the other models. For example, a holster for the PT-111 Mill Pro will usually also fit a PT-140 or PT-145 Mill Pro.

It's important to point out that there are significant design differences between the Mill Pro series and the standard Millennium series that will impact holster fit. As the Pro series had an accessory rail and the standard Millennium series doesn't, the holsters are not interchangeable between the two. A holster for a Mill Pro series will most likely fit a standard series, but not vice-versa.

Personally, I've found the Taurus Millennium pro series to be an first-class value for the money, offering features and performance that are generally found on more expensive handguns.
