Just got mine from there i jumped on the free shipping offer. Excellent deal. Comes in cardboard box with drawstring soft bag for pistol and small drawstring soft bag for tools. Paperwork carry on sticker and single mag..
I finally fired mine, and tried the Hi-Point 9mm Carbine magazine trick. They work!
The other handgun I have is a FeG PA-63 in 9mm Makarov.
Similar size and magazine capacity, but the Taurus uses a more available cartridge.
Once I got used to the DA first shot, I got the hang of the 709, used it for my CCW quals
