    ...okay just got back in from shooting. I took my 11 year old son..he had a BLAST!!


    Besides the 709 Slim...I had my PT 1911 45ACP, and his Walther P22.


    Well.....manufacturer and round count :


    Hornady Critical Defense, (14) rounds = 100%

    Remington Golden Sabres. (14) rounds = (2) FTE's

    My reloads (60) rounds, Winchester Brass, CCI Small Pistol Primers, 115 gr. JHP with 6.0 gr. Unique = (3) FTE's


    I am very pleased that the Hornady factory loads....all performed 100%. As this will be my carry load.

    As for my reloads....I may drop the powder charge and see what happens.


    I will contact Taurus and see if they will send me a new extractor, just to play it safe.

    All in all, I am very pleased with this pistol, great trigger, ergonomically designed grip which hastens the recoil for a 19 oz. pistol.

    Now, I will be shopping for a carry holster. Any suggestions!!

    An el cheapo nylon IWB works best for me. I've got an expensive, nice leather IWB for it that isn't nearly as comfortable.

    Nicely done! I hope the new pistola serves you well.

    Personally carry mine in a Desantis Superfly without the extra cover in my pocket or iwb in a 26$ HighNoon Mr.Softy. Am totally happy with both but i prefer pocket carry for the comfortableness.
