      New Taurus PT709 Slim 9mm from 2008 Shot Show???

      Hi Guys,

      Have you guys seen or heard about the new slim compact 9mm Taurus is supposed to be putting out? Have they communicated any info about the date this gun will be available? Looks great and perfect size for what I'm looking for in a carry gun.

      I don't even see it on the Taurus web site. If it ever comes out I'd be interested in taking a look at it.

      Thank you. I was looking on this page, http://www.taurususa.com/products/products-pistols.cfm. I did not notice the gun selector link, you know, the first link in the products group.

      Interesting that they call it 'Slim' but neglect to put dimensions on their web-site.

      Well, it looks narrower than a Glock or SIG...but that's not saying much.

      Says it will be available Q4. We'll see.

      The website says it is SAO. That's the safety on the left side of the gun? Doesn't look that easy to access with the thumb during a draw, it's pretty much flush with the slide.

      Even though I'm not a Taurus fan I have to admit thats a decent looking weapon.

      Just checked their site again and it still just says that it will be available in the 4th qtr, I guess that means any day now since we are in the 4th qtr.

      I probably would not be willing to buy this anytime soon as I would want there to be some sort of real world trial period. I can't afford to buy guns very often so when I do I want to know that they are worthy.

      It looks kind of like a slightly larger and pricier and more refined PF-9.

      I like it though.

      More than likely it means it will be available any quarter now.

      Reading about it and it says single action, so do you rack one in the chamber and it is cocked and then put it on saftey? Can you decock it and cock it without racking the slide? Just a little confused

      That article makes me want to rethink my previous statement of waiting a bit on it. My next purchase I hope will be in December and was between a Bersa Thunder 9UC and a Smith M&P9c. I may need to really look at this gun before I make my decision, if it is out by then.

      Typical Paid Info-tizement article, but I'll take a close look at it. This is the gun I wish Springfield, Glock or Smith and Wesson would make...

      A 3" single-stack 9mm.

      I'll have to hold it up next to the PF-9... at a similar price point.
