Awesome little 9mm. Great price and received it very fast. Put 200+ rounds so far. No FTF, FTE. Only had 2 issues but I expected them as it was with steel ammo that I've had issues with in my other 9mm. I highly recommend a speed loader and at least 1 spare mag. I recommend Winchester brass or Tulammo Aluminum. I did not like the feel or Hornady Defense rounds as it felt weak. The 2 rounds with issues were Monarch Steel cases. Once you get used to the trigger it makes the gun easier to use.

Reliability so far is 100%. 250 rounds. Different makes, weights and power levels. Leaded and unleaded hollow points and FMJ. No jams. Only comes with one magazine and has some pretty sharp edges, but for the price you get a small, powerful and reliable ccw.

Looks good, shoots great I love it. I would recommend the Taurus 709 slim to anyone.

I like the 709 Slim a lot, in fact I purchased a second one on Bud's to keep at home while I'm carrying one. On the range it reliably handled any kind of ammo I put through it. It also has some nice features like the adjustable rear sights, simple take down pins and a safety. Field stripping and cleaning is a breeze. The Slim is not hammer fired, yet it is single/double action. After the first shot the trigger pull is short, light and crisp. It's a good idea to use the safety because it's easy to fire accidentally . Maybe the best part is the price of the Slim. I don't think you can get a better deal on a 9mm carry gun.

Nice fit and finish. Feels good in my hand. I bought an IWB and ankle holster to go with it. Easy to conceal and carry/wear. Take down was a bit of a problem, but after 100 rounds it was a bit looser. I really like the safety... long and easy to operate (not like some smaller thumb safetys that almost require repositioning the weapon to operate). I did however experience erratic trigger pull weights. Like, all over the place. I wish I would have read about that on-line prior to my purchase because it likely would have steered me away. For some shots the trigger felt really light. For others (about 60%) the pull seemed to be EXTREMELY heavy. For about 20% of the shots the trigger was so hard to pull my hand would shake... I actually thought I had the safety on! I took the gun to an authorized dealer who can send it back to Taurus for free even though they didn\'t sell me the weapon (it would have cost me $50 to send it myself - so, nice service). In a conversation wth Taurus they said they are aware of the issue and will be able to help me out. Jury is out until I get the gun back (they said about 4-6 weeks, but on-line reports from similar issues state 2-4).

Fantastic purchase! Received at my local dealer within a couple days. Perfect size and caliber for me to carry concealed. Took it out of the box, wiped it down and went to the range with it for the first time yesterday. I ran 150 rounds of cheap ammo through it and had zero issues and all rounds fired. Great, accurate little 9mm. Good choice for a concealed carry weapon. Super easy to break down and clean also.
