I just wanted to introduce myself, I am a new gun owner and I have recently purchased a Taurus 709 slim. I have yet to fire this one but I'm hoping it will be the beginning of a wonderful relationship :D

:wave:Welcome to the finest firearm forum on the web.:thumb:

I’ve spent countless hours here at TaurusArmed.net during the past three years researching, reading, and learning about Taurus handguns in particular and about firearms and firearm safety, handling, and maintenance, in general.

Many is the time when I’ve drooled over the handgun pictures which, routinely, are posted when a member acquires a new shootin’ iron, and have actively participated in good-natured debating about politics and how to solve the world’s problems :icon_rolleyes: with our great forum members and staff. :icon_ poke:

In short, the hours I’ve spent here at TaurusArmed.net have been hours that have greatly enriched my life and my overall knowledge base on a myriad of topics.

I sincerely hope you will enjoy your membership here as much as I am enjoying mine.

Welcome from Indiana! Being new to firearms is exciting, but before you shoot that new 709, please take the time to field strip it and give it a good cleaning and lube job. They come with preservative inside them that, without cleaning, will gum up the action and cause failures. I love my 709.

Be sure to clean it well and lube lightly before you get to the range.

Im glad you have mentioned this too me because I was wondering why it had came with so much fluid on it. The first this I had noticed when holding it for the first time when I got home was that it was real moist around certain parts like the between the slide and the barrel and all over the mag. It almost seemed like grease and I was worried it would gum up, I'm glad I can clean it because I was thinking "maybe it's supposed to be like that". I'll make sure I give this lil guy a good cleaning as soon as I look into how to properly do a thorough cleaning job :) thanks again budd
