Hello fellow Taurus buddies ! New to the forum but more than happy to share info and questions when they do come about.

First of all, I bought my wife a nice little PT809 about a year ago and have been very pleased with it. It's shot pretty darn straight and it's so easy to maintain. Love the SA/DA on it. I just took it to get my CHL , shot a perfect 250 score . Now that I will be getting my CHL in the mail soon enough, I would like to start considering what to pack in my pocket.

Been researching the PT709 Slim, love it for it's SA/DA , safety trigger(Glock) and it also comes with an added safety lever. I like the size of it but not 100% sure on it's reliability and of course it's 7+1 capacity. My pal has a Glock 26 , nice gun but to me, I'd rather have the added safety lever the 709 slim has. It has all the features of the Glock but at 1/2 the price.

Inputs anyone?

PT809....
adding more soon ...:)

Congrats on getting your CHL. I have owned the PT709's bigger brother for about 2 years and love it.

Welcome fellow Houstonian and CHL holder. I don't have the PT709, but I work with a number of people that do and they love them. There are plenty of folks here that own them and have the same opinion.

Howdy!

I love my 709. It has waaay over 1,000 rounds through it, probably closer to 2,000. It has been 100% reliable.

Welcome to TaurusArmed.net!

My suggestion for a great pocket or pouch pistol is the Taurus PT738 TCP.

At 10.2 ounces it is the one of the most lightweight pocket pistols on the market.
