Just received from my transfer dealer and after a thorough cleaning headed to the range. Put 100 rounds each of Winchester white box and cheap Federal ammo. Gun functioned perfectly. No FTF's or FTE's. Groups nicely at 15 yards. Didn't shoot any farther than that. Gun looks good and feels great in the hand. Good trigger and sights were dead on without any adjustment.

Great job by Bud's - excellent service and price. Bought the stainless model which I think is now discontinued. The PT 809 has a great feel and by changing the backstrap you can customize it to your hand. Because of my big hands I used the "G" (grande) backstrap. Pistol shoots great - very little recoil - comfortable. Did have a problem with sights. Out of the box the weapon was firing to the left, had to have the sights adjusted in order to correct the problem. After correction - right on target. I feel this is a great weapon at a real good price. Note: not a carry gun.

Granted I have not yet shot the gun however I can say that overall initial impression of the gun and with the Bud's experience is excellent. I ordered the pistol on Saturday and picked it up from FFL on the following Wednesday - I am relatively close to Bud's out of Lexington with me being in the Dayton/Cincinnati area. No issues with ordering, delivery, communication with Bud's or FFL xfer. The gun comes with a decent case, two 17 mags, cleaning rod, etc. as stated in ad and other reviews. After cleaning the gun clean from the grease/oil from the outside, the gun feels and looks really good (SS model) and beyond what I initially expected - perfect hand fit and weight balance for me anyway. For the $$$ this seems to be a good buy and would recommend gun and Bud's to anyone. Just waiting to shoot, but at this point A++ !!

Got my 809 today. Please be extremely careful, BOTH Bud's and all customers. I was expecting a full-size 809 and opened the box at my FFL to discover that I got an 809c, which is the compact version. This surprised me and disappointed me because I shoot left handed, so I was looking forward to ambi. features like the decocker/safety and the slide release simply for ease of use. With that being said, I think I will just keep it because there are very few differences between the compact and full fact, the ambi. features are the only things I can think of that do not come on the compact pistol. You still get a standard 13 round mag, and high cap. 17 round mag, barrel brush, mag load assister, and some key-tools that operate Taurus's safety feature on the firearm. I still have not shot it, but plan on running a couple of rounds through it this weekend. I HIGHLY recommend this pistol. In fact, I think the 800 series is the best pistol on the market for under 400 bucks. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise on the build quality of this gun, it is very exceptional. The feel and balance of the gun is great. It fits my hand perfectly with the high cap. mag and has just enough room for my pinky with the standard mag. Overall, great gun for the money and a good choice for CC if you are thinking about that. This is the main reason I will keep the compact. The full size version of this gun is very nice, but quite large at the same time and would be difficult to CC with ease and comfort. After all, you get the same mags and accessories with the compact model. I can still work the right-handed features on the compact with my left hand fairly easily via the index/trigger finger. The only other con to this firearm is the mag release is pretty tough. I have to push on the bottom of the mag to make it release easier, but I'm sure it will break in after a while.

Took 16 days to receive the gun, but that is understandable since Bud's is experiencing extreme volumes of orders right now. Good company that I would definately deal with again. Shot the gun after i cleaned and lubed thoroughly since it had a lot of thick heavy grease on it. Not only does the 809 shoot as well as expected, but it is also a very "cool" looking gun. Looked at other models as well, but the price and awesome looks of the 809 drew me to it. Comes in a very nice case with an extra clip, magazine loading assister, extra backstraps(for the desired grip of the gun), and a cleaning rod to clean the inside of the barrell. The best feature of the gun is the magazines-they hold 17! Bottom line........great gun,great looking, good company!
