    You are correct. A little further research on my part shows that it will be available the 4th quarter of this year. I did see a review by Guns and Ammo and they liked it (Dick Metcalf)

    I don't think I have ever seen a gun writer not like a gun.
    Why Ike, whatever do you mean? Maybe poker's just not your game Ike. I know! Let's have a spelling contest!

    If it is as sleek as it looks it may have to come home with me. I was looking at their 2009 new products catalog last night and I liked they 709 and the tiny .22 or .25 they are coming to market with. All three look pretty darn slick, and the Taurus price is always right.

    IMHO its wise to wait a year after the release of a new
    weapon, gives it a chance to work out all or most of the bug's.

    Saw them at the SHOT SHOW & was impressed. The wife is wanting one, as it is one of the few semi autos that fit her hand well and she had no difficulty operating the slide & controls. The rep said they would be out in March. Checked our local gun shop and they've not seen any yet.

    Of course Taurus is a big advertiser in G&A and a big sponsor of G&A TV....so of course they gave good reviews.

    I have been waiting for this stinkin' gun to release for over a year. They actually had it at the SHOT Show last year. Any day now would be nice Taurus.

    I'm with you Siafu, I enjoyed the catalog too. I see a couple of different items there in my future. I like Taurus, never had the first problem with any of their guns that I've owned. They make good guns.

    Hah, actually Taurus has had that 'Status: Available 4th qtr.' up since last year. I guess it just rolls over to whichever year it currently is :)

    Personally, I'm looking forward to them coming out as well!

    Agreed. With that said, the PLY22 model definitely has my interest. Still hoping Kel-Tec will come out with a .22LR.

    I heard the PT709 will be available this summer. I have one on order at my LGS.

    Any verdict on this pistol?


    There are several of these available on Gunbroker now. Any update on this pistol? Does anybody have direct experience with it?

    I own one and am in the process of trying to send it back. Maybe I got the lemon but after initial cleaning and on the first trip to the range had one FTE after another. Also one of the two magazines that came with it will not engage the slide catch when the magazine is empty.
