I purchased new 740 slim Tuesday. Field stripped and used Gun Scrubber and compressed air to clean. Lubed and went to range today. First three shots were 2" high and 2" left. Had a few low lefts that were cured by a firmer grip plus the off hand thumb in the recess near the front of the frame. Extremely please with the action and accuracy after I got used to it.

I have the usual 6# DA trigger with the SA breaking at an estimated 9# (my scale reading stops at 8#).
In 58 rounds of mixed ball and HP, I had two cases where the SA function did not set after firing. The resulting DA pull was so sweet I am going to ask Taurus if they can disable the SA completely.

I use DeSantis for my 709 & 740 - IWB 106 Sof-Tuck w/adj. cant - rides high and comfortable all day. Adjustable cant is nice feature and adj. to clothes I'm wearing for best conceal., shirt tucked or out. Sometimes use 031 Insider - conceals really well, rides low and comfortable all day, shirt out only. With jacket or vest use N38 The Nemesis pocket holster. I'll post a picture shortly (I hope - having camera problem) .

EDIT: Add the new 4ART Remora to the lot along with single mag holders marked 709 and 740 so I don't grab the wrong spare mag when headed out. Have had the Remora for just a short time, but really like it. Great for elastic only waste bands for shorts or casual pants.

I strong recommend the N82 (N8 squared). I use it with my 3 Inch 1911 and it is extremely comfortable
