So, I was not in the market for a single stack 9 but was helping my co-worker find a Nano (he is a Beretta guy) and one of my LGS had a 709 in stock. Was 419.99 originally, but had been reduced to 299 for a quick sale. I could not pass up on it, and am glad I did not. My second Taurus and also backed by the Davidson's lifetime warranty. Feels good in the hand - not as nice as the PT111 which I chose over this not too long ago. Hoping to get some shooting in tomorrow, if weather cooperates.

Did give it a good cleaning this afternoon. It was packed with cosmoline, and took forever to get the stuff off of there. Even the magazine was soaked in the stuff and took some pretty good scrubbing to get it all out of there. Not sure if the mag got put back together - but the range time will help me figure that one out.

Thanks all for your help in making my spur-of-the-moment-decision.

Congratulations on corralling yet another fine Taurus handgun!


Both the 709 and 740 are great carry guns. :guns:

Glad you finally got it in your hands. Congrats and let us know how she shoots. Remember - firm two handed grip and just the pad of the finger on the trigger for best results.

Thanks all.

Ordered a Remore No Clip holster, using their Father's Day special coupon. I hit the button on Sunday, and it will be delivered this evening in MN. Now, that is fast.
