Finally got my PT709 Slim, my Christmas Present for this year and I really love the feel of it and can't wait to shoot it. I'm in the process of cleaning it and trying to figure out what ammo I want to put through it, I'm leaning towards Speer Gold Dots for my personal defense load but haven't decided on a range ammo yet. Been reading up on what everyone uses and what seems to work best in the 709, anyone with recommendations feel free to post your results in the meantime below is a few pics of my new 709.

PS almost forgot Merry Christmas to everyone, hope you all have a great holiday and thanks for contributing to what I'm finding is a great forum.

Congrats on the gun!!!

I have shot many a Gold Dot, reg. and Short Barrel +P, through my 2 709s w/o a problem... I have a couple case of them, but I got into the Critical Defense bit, so I carry w/ them, now. The only ammo I've had trouble w/ is WWB in my matte, 709 (FTE). My blue 709, OTOH, doesn't have that problem...

Hope you've had an opportunity to heat her up by now. If you have, you know what we know...it's a great gun; if you haven't, you're going to be very happy. Congratulations. Stay safe.

Thanks for all the warm reply's I will defiantly give a range report once I get around to it, right now the weather is pretty crappy and no indoor ranges nearby so it could be a little while. I just ordered 50 rounds Fiocchi 124 grain and 50 rounds Federal American Eagle 124 grain to get me started from Lucky Gunner and waiting on my ammo to come in.

Congratulations on the new noise maker! I bet you are biting your fingernails waiting for the weather to clear to go shooting.
