Late last year I purchased a Taurus Millennium .40. unfortunately I experienced a great deal of problems in terms of accuracy at the range which I attributed to the weapons composite design combined with significant caliber. I finally gave up and traded the .40 for a new Millennium .380 since all of my gear / holsters etc would interchange. I have been thrilled with the .380 even considering the obvious difference in ballistics. I figure it's better to be able to put 12 rounds of .380 center mass if things get ugly instead of just accepting the questionable accuracy I experienced with the .40. I have been an avid handgun shooter for years but must admit this is my first foray into compact autos. I still want a .40 and would appreciate suggestions. Finally, I followed the advice of members of THR and bought a couple boxes of Cor-Bon .380, wow that is a rather "peppy" round that I would certainly hate to be on the receiving end of.
