Hi folks. I'm a first time Taurus buyer from Atlanta, GA. I just brought home a PT 709 Slim with the stainless slide for concealed carry. After cleaning out the enormous amount of dried, gummy factory grease, I oiled it up and slipped in a snap cap to try the trigger pull. From what I understand, the single action trigger is sort of a love/hate deal but I'm definitely one of the lovers. I traded in my Kel-Tec PF9 punisher on the Slim which fits my hand much better. I worked for a gun shop back in the 70's and have had to overcome a serious predjudice against the brand as Taurus did not exactly enjoy a great reputation back then. They weren't very well made and high performance ammo tended to split the barrels. The brand has come a long, long way since then and I'm most impressed with the quality and engineering. Their 1911 model is so nice, in fact, I'm actually tempted to buy a second Taurus. I'll be showing up in other places in the forum as I have a lot of questions and will have a lot of comments after I finally get a chance to break in my new toy. I've been shooting for nearly 40 years and have accumulated a small but prized collection of favorites that includes Colt, Kimber, S&W (.38s & .357s from the 70s), Khar, Benelli, Colt-Sauer, Star, ParaOrdnance, and now, Taurus. Happy shooting!
