Taurus 709
Any of you guys know much about the Taurus 709 slim? 9mm CCW. I would almost consider it a pocket pistol. I'm just looking at it for consideration. Gun show is coming up in a few weeks and there may be a deal on one. I know there are alternatives but I want your opinions on this particular model.

If you look around this site, there have been a few posters talk about the 709. Seems (per their posts) that there may be a problem with the extractor causing the firearm to fail to eject. I don't own one and have never shot one, but it does make me think when those who have or do own one have issues. Just sayin...

I don't think I'd ever trust a Taurus for self-defense. Sure, there are probably some good ones, but any manufacturer with that many lemons is just unacceptable to me. Maybe look for a Kahr or Kel Tec instead?

That's good. I appreciate the input. I like the feel and concealment of the 709. If I get one, I'll be sure to post my report and impressions. Another one I'm looking at is the Kahr pm40.

I am interested in one as well. If I get one I will post my impression of it.

I looked long and hard at the 709. In the end it just felt a bit awkward( I have small hands). I went with the 738 instead. I carry everyday, so the weight and size benefits are a plus.

Thats the only thing Taxachusetts got right regarding firearm laws. Even if I wanted to, I couldn't own a Taurus. :rolleyes:

Alright then. What about the Kahr pm40.

Nice little gun, pricey, and recoil is brutal. The Kahr PM9 is much easier to shoot accurately...
