    MY WIFE brought home another gun !

    This is a switch.

    I came home from work this morning, and see a plastic Taurus box on the dining room table. Very unusual, I knew I hadn't left any of the guns out.

    I open it, and it's a PT-709 Slim

    I go to bed and ask her "what's with the gun?'

    She said some guy at work knew she was into shooting, so he told her to take it to the range and try it out. She said that we don't need any more guns, she already has a few of her own, and that she has no money for another one anyway.

    The guy said to just take it, and shoot it, and see how she likes it anyway. So here it is.

    Damn nice lookin' little gun. You can see that it was fired a few times, but I doubt that even a whole box of ammo was put through it. The gun is like brand new.

    I'm curious as to what she's gonna do after we make our weekly range trip at the end of the week, if she likes the gun.

    She certainly isn't the one who buys extra guns, but she doesn't have her own 9mm yet. She put 100 rounds through my 24/7 Pro last week, and liked it a lot, except for the fact that the grips were a little too fat for her hands. Therefore she should like this 709 a lot.

    Sounds like the guy wants to get rid of the gun, maybe he'll part with it for a good price. But normally, I can't see her buying another gun right now.

    I'm keeping my mouth shut on this one. I'm just gonna wait, and see what she does

    If it's a good price, and she doesn't want it. Let me know. This is the one my fiancé wants.

    It wouldn't hurt to check and see what 709s are costing in your area so both of you know what's a good price.

    I checked Gun Broker. They seem to be going for just under 400 bucks.

    You know how it is: 375 plus shipping, 389 with free shipping, etc. Plus the FFL transfer fee of course.

    This gun, brand new would easily set us back 400 plus.

    I'm thinking 300 might be fair, but I'm trying not to make it sound like I'm pushing her to buy it.

    She is VERY anxious to shoot it though. This is a good thing for sure.

    We had a problem with her .380 where she fired another round after a squib, and the barrel got bulged out big-time. I sent it back to the Bersa warranty center, but haven't heard from them yet.

    I didn't expect them to cover it, so we were planning on spending some money to get it repaired.

    If by chance, they cover it under the warranty, I'm certain that she will buy this 709. So I got my fingers crossed.

    Always nice to add another gun to the collection

    LOL! My wife already has her own XDm 9mm, and when I got an HK P7 she shot it at the range and commented on how nice it was. When I shipped it off to get a polished hard chrome finish, she decided that the P7 would be 'her' carry piece now, and that she'd 'let' me get another for myself.

    Wife that brings guns home...... sounds like a plus to me. The local gun store has a new 709 for 269.00 as a special right now.
