Any thoughts on the PT709 that should be out later this year? It looks like a nice single stack 9mm that could give Kel-Tec's PF9 a run for the money, or leave it in the dust.

Finally, the 9 mm equivalent of the 745. Long have I waited for a compact single stack DA polymer pistol in 9 mm.

It's nice---but not even close to the PF-9 in width and weight.

No, but close to width is good. The PF-9 is .88? My 24/7 Pro Compact is 1" and has a double stack magazine. My guess is the Taurus will be around .92. So any single stack close to the Kel Tec in width is okay by me. That and I like manual safeties which the Kel Tec does not have. I've also handled two Kel Tec PF-9's. The blued finish was absolutely awful. It was uneven. In some parts dull and in some parts more glossy. The HC version I handled was so much nicer. I'd buy one of those if I were so inclined.

Still, if 19 ounces WITH mag is what the Taurus weighs then it's only 3.5 ounces heavier and will hold one more round, a manual safety and have a trigger I'm familiar with.

On another shot show blog posting by the same author as the link cited above, it said that the 709 is single action? That surely must be an error. DA/SA perhaps, but I cannot believe that it is a cocked and locked SA.

I'm thinking it may be the size of the Kahr CW9. Maybe like the Kahr, but done right, with a safety.

Seems that the company has listened somewhat to buyers, but the other makers having this type on the market finally brought them around to a single stack.

After bemoaning the loss of PT908 as a model and no replacement for it this might be the thing we've been waiting for. More in depth info would be nice though.

From the buzz I've seen attributed to the PT709 on other boards, it seems Taurus has another big winner on their hands.

Looks like another must have Taurus for me to add to the stable, I dont see why it couldnt be a single action and be carried cocked and locked just like I do with my PT145 24/7's and PT1911's. Maybe that wasnt a type O

Unfortunately, the 709 is not available yet. (It was introduced a few weeks ago at the SHOT show) Probably won't be available until the end of the year at the earliest in my estimation.
Price would be comparable to the Millenium Pro series I assume.
