    Taurus PT 709 Slim,..and small (photos)

    Took delivery of my Taurus PT 709 Slim a few days ago. First thing I did was that I disassembled it and took off the thick white factory grease the rails and internal (visible) frame parts were covered in. Cleaned it good and lubed it well. She's good-to-go

    I snapped a few photos to show you folks just how Slim and Small this 9mm really is.

    Range report will follow Saturday evening.

    We have two stainless ones in the family and both have never had any malfunctions. Just keep the firing pin flushed out and lightly lubed. I can bench rest mine into one inch groups at ten yards, using S&B ammo.

    Congrats, and welcome to the 709 club. It's addictive. I've had the stainless slide model for five months or so with 600 flawless rounds and it's accurate and fun to shoot. I end up carrying it more than anything else I've got. I recommend the 1st 200 rounds FMJ (not Winchester White Box). Clean it every 200 rounds and you'll be addicted to yours just like I am mine. Give us a range report...mine is as accurate, if not moreso, than any of my other handguns. That blew my mind. And I'm an old die hard revolver man...I'm not supposed to like semi-autos.

    I was thinking about getting a .380 until I got the 709. It's slightly larger, 9mm, and still small enough to easily pocket. I can't justify buying a .380 to myself now that I have one of these.

    THANKS TX-JB.

    She's a tiny little thing, for sure. I carried a Rohrbaugh 9s a few years back and this PT709 isn't much bigger.

    Thanks, BugDude.

    I've read about this procedure on multiple threads. This protocol seems to produce a reliable and dependable carry piece.

    So my woman just pointed this out while I was looking at this thread. She has been kinda looking for something smaller than a her M&P. She has yet to pull a trigger on ANY firearm so this is HUGE!

    She liked those photos and asked me about this firearm. I will probably bring one home tomorrow. She really likes the size and shape.

    Go ahead and get 2, because you'll have to have one too. I got the stainless steel slide model due to a lot of IWB carry. I love the trigger. You can't get a feel for the trigger dry firing unless you rack the slide first. It is a double strike capability striker fired, and the trigger is different on subsequent strikes.

    Once you carry one IWB and shoot it, you won't be able to resist.

    What's the capacity on that?

    Suppose I could Google, I am just being lazy.

    Nice gun, beautiful photos. Love the card deck comparison.
