Just picked up a Taurus 709 slim 9mm from Academy today. I did a little research and held one a couple of times and decided that this might be the answer to my CCW problem. It is very small and light and fits entirey in my back pocket. My research led me to choose this gun over a Kel Tec and the only real competition was a Bersa Pro UC 9mm which I think are good looking. Academy didn't have one but they did have the Taurus for $349. Came with two 7 rd mags and case. It has ajustable rear sight for wind and elev. You can use the saftey lock key that comes with it for sight adjustment. I took a Box of Winchester Nato FMJ 147 grain and Monarch 147 FMJ as well. This was my second DOA handgun. The first was a S&W Sigma 9mm which I quickly traded. The trigger was similar and it took me a while to get used to it. Overall, I'm pleased 'cause this little gun is far more accurate than I would've predicted. Into my second box of fifty, I could put all 7 rounds in a 4 inch group from 7 yards. Not incredible at all but very good for a little gun with me shooting. There were some FTF's and some stovepipes but I think a lot of it was due to the Win. NATO rounds which I think are just a touch longer than their normal white box. Also, being a tiny gun, it has some recoil. Not unlike a PA63 9x18, if you're familiar with those. I think I was guilty of limp wristing a few from the first box. The cheapy monarchs fed with nary a hickup. As I said, I think this will turn out to be a very good purchase. It is very concealable and far mor accurate than I would've believed. I think Taurus is a pretty good manufacturer. The gun I gave up to get this one was a Bersa .380 Thunder. Loved the gun, not one malfunction, but I'm not crazy about the .380 caliber in general and the cost of ammo made the switch a no brainer. I think with some practice, and a few hundred rounds run through it, the Taurus 709 slim will be an excellent CCW gun. It will never shoot like my CZ-75, but then again, nothing does.
