After I bought my Taurus Millennium Pro PT-111 9mm pistol I went about looking on the web for information on how to care for and clean a pistol. It seems that how to clean a gun is the best kept secret there is. I could not find a single site that really went into detail. My "aim" is to fix that. With that in mind, welcome to my site. I hope you find it helpful.
If you find something here that could be done better or is just plain WRONG please so #1, I can fix this page and #2, I can start caring for my pistol better. But, if you are where I was, I hope this helps.
ALWAYS BE SURE YOUR WEAPON IS UNLOADED!!! You could shoot yourself or someone else and we really don't want that. Remove the MAGAZINE. BE SURE that the chamber is EMPTY by pulling back on the slide. Lock the slide open. Look in the chamber (from the side not down the barrel) and make sure there is no bullet there.
- Make SURE the gun is unloaded before performing ANY work on it.
- Treat the gun as if it is always loaded.
- Never point the gun at anything you aren't willing to destroy.
- Never ever point the gun at any person... never!
