I received this fast from Bud's. Shot 100 rounds through it yesterday with only one misfire, but I pulled the trigger again, and the round fired. Easy to break down, but you have to remember to push the lever down on both sides of the barrel, not just one side. It has a little kick, as you would expect from a small pistol shooting 40 cal rounds. The sights were a pain to adjust as it shot about 2 inches low at 7 yards. The instructions do not tell you which way to adjust, so here it is: if you want to raise the hit on the target, you must raise the rear sight by turning the screw counterclockwise(instructions leave that part out). It is not nearly as good a weapon as my S&W 45c, but then it is a lot cheaper, and smaller, so I think it will be a great concealed weapon with a lot of punch. I don't know if I was not holding the gun correctly, or the fact that I wore rubber gloves, but I got a blister on the right side of my trigger finger and I am right handed (I still haven't figured that one out). It is very difficult to get 6 rounds in the magazine--the last one is virtually impossible, so I ordered a Butler Creek Uplula magazine loader when I got home from shooting. Unfortunately, Bud's does not have the model for higher calibers(they have the one for 22-380), so I ordered it elsewhere. My local gun stores did not have it either, so they must be in short supply. You must clean this gun well before you shoot it because it is pretty greasy. Hope this helps.

Great service once again from BUDs! I can't speak for anyone else but the Taurus 740 Slim performs above my expectations and certainly is steadfastly reliable at the range. The grip is great for smaller stature shooters such as myself. Recoil is obviously a bit more than my range .40. The trigger has a long travel before breaking and takes getting used to. I spent about 52 rounds just acquainting myself with the trigger yesterday. As far as accuracy, the rear sight is adjustable but the signs of lobster claw/wrist break are operator error and just a matter of practice. For a CCW, the Slim .40 is excellent and didn't break the bank; I can still afford to purchase ammo and range time. Taurus did a good job on the slim. Some words of advice: Thoroughly clean this gun BEFORE shooting the first time. The action is gooey with grease and will cause many problems unless well cleaned beforehand.
