Range report…first time out with PT709

Quick range report for my new PT709.
After reading some of the posts I was very concerned about what to expect.
Shot 100 WWB… had 2 issues.
One FTE… this could have been from what people describe s an issue with the ejection ring on cartridge.
One FTL… last cartridge in mag, was slightly moved front, reseated to back no problem. I am hoping this was because I may not have taped mag back in hand before inserting.
Next fired 50 Remmington… no issues at all.
Over all I like the pistol…size ail be good for concealed carry, grip is very thin for my hands (medium size)…I am going to try some Pachmayr type grip…took some time to get use to trigger pull MUCH different than GLOCK.

Other thoughts?

Had good luck with mine. I hear you about the trigger, you get used to it though, and it has a fast reset.

Sounds like a good day on the range all considered. It should do better the next time out.

Sounds like a fun day. Should work the kinks out of it in a few more rounds. They are nice guns and surprisingly smooth for the size. Enjoy.

Congrats, best of luck and welcome!

Most of us around here LOVE our 709's. Once you get used to the trigger and get them sighted, they're a damned accurate pistol.

Keep us up to date on your outings and, in case you haven't heard........:nopics:
