I picked up my first gun today at a show.

Taurus PT 140 Pro Millennium 40 s&w

I just picked up the basic package today with the 2 clips and my case. I figure I need to get a nice cleaning kit as well, but is there anything else anyone on here can suggest I would want to invest in for this piece?

I am getting my carry/conceal stuff done in a few weeks, so I assume I need to purchase a holster once I get that done.

shot it yesterday and it felt great. just need mucho practice with slowly squeezing the trigger to the point where i am surprised the gun fires.

as I did this more I was hitting the intended areas of the target more. I like the compactness of the gun though.

 Go with an Alessi Talon holster for carrying if you are not riding in a car with it a lot.  It sits in the back of your pants, very comfortable, and you can carry in shorts and an untucked tshirt with no one noticing.  I carry my full sized Glock with one and no one ever knows.

Also, the Ruger .22 revolver or semi are classic guns. Very simple to use and clean and cheap to practice with.

I love my Single Six revolver. I could shoot that thing all day. Handsome, accurate, comfortable, and only BB guns have cheaper ammo.

Yep. I got good enough with my .22 lever gun to hit a tin can at 100 yards most of the time with iron sights. Shooting a BB gun constantly growing up helped, too.

Vengence,

Trijicon or Tritium night sites, fixed, not adjustable are a MUST. I also highly recommend a LaserMax guide rod, laser site.
