Just got to go and break in my new pt709 slim. It shot great, a little low out of the box but i fixed that with the sights. It is a much nicer gun than the tcp to shoot. I do miss the small size of the tcp but the 709 is not overly heavy or bulky. I could probably get away with using the holster for the tcp on the 709. It feels great in your hand as well. I got a iwb holster for it and it feels very similar to the tcp when i carry it. I put 200 rounds through her today and not one problem. Used both federal premium and hydra shocks. Quite confident carring her now. I will post some pics when i take some. Just thought i would sare.
