    300 is about what shops sell them used for. Its reasonable.

    Which means he would be lucky to get $150 from a dealer.

    I had a 740 slim and liked it. Real easy to pocket carry and never had a single issue with it.

    If he's really a friend he'll not charge you retail price.

    as a retail store we would have that gun used in our case for around 275-289 ASSUMING it was in about 90% condition 80% would look more around 249.

    Some of the early 709 slims had a issue with the mag falling out, the fix was to bend the top of the mag out to get caught by the latch :confused:

    Like most of the Taurus guns today it is a crap shoot. 200 or no deal.
