    I am looking to purchase a Taurus 40 slim it's priced for 300. This pistol is going to be my girlfriends main concealed carry firearm. Since she works late nights.

    Has she fired one or handled it?

    She loves my glock22 she can't shoot small calibers I.e 9mm 380 very well. She loves 40.sw and the 45acp she has a judge public defender that's in her car she loves it , but it's to big to fit In her purse at work.

    The pt740 is very light weight die to size and material. She might find, with the polymer and minimal frame size, that the recoil is much worse.

    Is that why she doesn't like or shoot 380 & 9 well, because they're usually poly & compact frames...? Something to think about, I'd guess that's the case. If so the 40 will only be worse!

    Just a thought

    She shoots the berreta 9mm fine and the 380 everytime she was all over the place with it. She shoots better with the heavier rounds.

    Then I'd say it's a great gun for her. The trigger is very Glock like and has a manual safety option for safely carrying loose in a purse.

    Unless you want the pistol for yourself, I would not purchase it for her without her handling that gun and firing it. She is the only one that can make an effective evaluation of what she will carry.

    i have to agree as well. the person who is going to be carrying the pistol is the one who needs to make the decision on what's a right for them.
