    Taurus 709 Slim

    Walked into my local shop last Friday looking for a Kahr CW9 and to my suprise was a new Taurus 709 in the case. I held it and like it and took it home, shot about 80 rounds of Winchester 115g and the gun performed excellent. Very accurate at 25 yards and it has a very nice trigger, DA on the first chambered round and SA on all the rest. It's a very easy to get use to trigger and I like it alot. Very easy to disassemble and clean. Anyone here seen or shot one?

    I lost interest in it when they changed the look of the pistol. They made it more squared off, originally it was rounded.

    see the very last post here: New Taurus PT709 Slim 9mm from 2008 Shot Show???

    Hang on dude -- they're brand new, so the odds of someone here having one as soon as they were released is slim.

    In time, someone else will get one too......

    Yes, I like the look of the earlier version also. The newer one is slightly different but it will grow on you quickly once you hold it and shoot it. Just that little bit of a narrower grip makes a big difference for me at least. The trigger is what really sold me on the gun, it's very nice. I've had mine about 2 weeks now and I'm impressed with it.

    I got to see/hold one at the gunshow this past weekend. Interesting pistol, but man, is it ever homely. I used to think that Glocks were rather homely (which is why I never considered owning one until I decided to get my CHL), but my Glock is a teenage beauty queen* compared to that thing.

    OTOH, if I needed a slim semi, I would not hold it's looks against it. It will be interesting to see how well they hold up over the next few years.

    Actually the looks of the gun don't bother me at all. At first look it seemed different, but after holding it and shooting it I really like it. Everyone who see's and questions it, likes it. Hey beauty is in the eye of the beholder...

    I would certainly agree, especially since I own both Glocks and XD's.

    The Slim did hold nicely. I think it has great potential to be a wonderful cc choice....

    Please consider posting a comprehensive review once you've used a bit, if you get a chance. I'd like to hear more about them...

    Actually they are out and available. I know of at least three people on another Taurus forum who have gotten them and provided first time range reports on it.

    Just joined and have a question concerning the new Taurus PT709 SLIM I brought my wife. I cannot seem to find the "sweetspot" for the disassembly latch. I can every now and then get it to work, but most times it's a pain. Is there a unpublished secret to the thing? BTW the wife really likes this weapon. Is very accurate and doesn't bother her hand like her Kimber Ultra carry II. Now, to try and find some 9mm ammo.

    Thanks in advance for the answer, if there is one

    Mine comes apart very easily, First remove the mag then pull the slide back about 1/2" and push down the disassembly buttons and let the slide move forward and pull the trigger back all the way. It took me a while as the instructions say nothing about pulling the trigger. My wife figured it out and showed me how to do it.
    How are you liking the trigger when shooting? Mine is great and I have about 300 rounds through the gun so far.

    Can't help you with the disassembly, but wanted to put up a suggestion. If you have a Wal-Mart nearby, check them for ammo. In our little city, they have been the most reliable supplier of 9mm over the past few months. The stock Blazer Brass in 9mm for under nine bucks, which is much lower than you can mail-order any type of FMJ.

    Welcome to the forum....

    I bought two of them (one for me and my wife) just about a week after they were released. We love ours and have no problem after about 300 rounds. I'm glad that you like yours!

    At 25 yards I can group shots easily within 3 inches. I also agree that the guns are very easy to break down and clean.

    I'm wanting to buy one. I've seen them at the last couple of shows and am impressed by the size of it. I'm hoping to pick one up at the Greensboro show this weekend.

    grumpy the golf and gun shop next to Hammers just north of sevierville on hwy 66 had right much 9mm ammo about a month ago if they haven't sold out. It was at a decent price too. Not sure how close to Sevierville you are.

    Could you post video of yourself shooting 3 inch groups at 25 yards with a 3" gun?

    I shoot competitively 2-3 days per week, 200+ rounds weekly. I'd love to see it done!

    I watched my brother-in-law shoot 7 rounds rapid fire at 25 FEET, and ALL were with in 6 inches. The gun seem to be very accurate, very easy to break down. I bought one last week and love it. I've got a Glock & S&W M&P. I will be carring the Tarus PT709. Feels much better then the other two.
