I would recommend not doing it. I have a PT111 and its not really accurate enough for me to bother putting a red dot on it. Get something nice and accurate and put a scope on that.

I second that this is probably not the best way to spend your money. But if you really want to:

They make a variety of cheap lasers that mount to the front of the trigger guard. These are pretty much universal. Check Sportsmans Guide or a good Airsoft store/site. I doubt you'd find a holster though.

As for the optics, that's harder. The BSA isin't really strong enough to mount on the slide, but you could screw a rail to the slide and try it. It might take a little tweaking for the added slide mass. Or you could get one of the various frame mounts that are on the market for other guns and try to adapt it to your Taurus. Maybe some good strong epoxy to the polymer frame? Either way, if you really want optics, it'll take a little work and be a one off custom kind of thing. Bolt-on mounts don't exist for that pistol.

Just curious, but why? Other then it might be neat, of course.

Last one I fired was plenty accurate enough for what it is .

That said, it is not a target gun , and I'm unaware of anyone making a mounting system for that particular firearm for a red dot sight.

A custom one can be built if it is realy what you want. Easier to look at mounting a laser, and I would first check with Crimson Trace to see wether they build one to fit you gun. If not, there are some cheaper set-ups that you can play with such as the ones that mount on the front of the trigger gaurd . I don't like these very well myself as they are difficult to keep stable . Again, some custom mounting work could be done if your set on doing something along those lines.
