My current CCW is a 709 Slim. I added the Pearce & Garrison mag extensions (although at 6'1" with big hands I have no problem shooting without it), a Hogue grip plus extra rubber (inner tube) at the top, and put a Glock Ameriglo sight on the front - really stands out nice. Carry it in a cross-breed type, custom made, IWB holster well made by a gent here in Missouri ($40)...also have a mag carrier from the same guy.

Just held a cpl class and one of my buddies used a pt380. The gun wouldn't function, the round would stop before it seated in the chamber. One time the slide was stuck in the locked position. I should say this gun was just out of the box, never cleaned. I broke it down, found an insane amount of grease throughout the interior. Lesson here, Taurus' suck? Or, clean your gun before you fire it out of the box.
I had trouble with mine as well when new out of the box. Real good cleaning and about 150 rounds and it never misses a lick now.
