So after fooling around with a 38 spl. revolver and a 380 auto, I decided that my 709 is the best combo for me in regards to size, weight, capacity and punch for my EDC piece.

So I have the all black model and I noticed the front of the gun is sharp and so are the areas near the ejection port. I was thinking of rounding them out with a dremel and sandpaper. If I do that, how do I go about getting the color back to black to match the rest of the slide?

Brchwood Casey makes some "cold" bluing products, but it won't be an exact match because Taurus used another process. I recommend that you first call Taurus and ask if modifying the pistol, using your process, voids the warranty. I see no reason it should, but I'm not Taurus trying to get out of a repair job.

I once used flat black spray paint on the metal parts of an old, near worthless, military rifle. It still looked good when it was stolen 15 years later.

Shouldn't be a problem leaving as it is - unless you carry without a holster, no sharp edges should matter if holstered.

I would probably use dura coat and bake it on. I used it on an AK47 and a BRNO Mauser I rebarreled and both still look good after about 15 years.
