Bang for your buck Review by Sam777

Great gun for the money, took it out to the range and found it very accurate, right out of the box it was center of mass at 15,21,and 25 feet, felt recoil is very manageable and gun fits good in your hands, on the negative side, I found that the gun being as slim as it is makes the positioning of your trigger finger a little bit of adjusting and getting use to, also I recommend that the gun be cleaned before using it, it did fail to feed about 5 or 6 times out of 50 rounds with Blazzer Brass, it loved all others...final note once it was cleaned and oiled it ate up everything it was fed, I highly recommend this gun for concealed carry, you wont know it's there...

I bought the Taurus 709FS Slim when it was on sale after Thanksgiving. This gun either jammed or failed to eject or failed to feed every single round shot through it! My local rural king was awesome at getting me a return label to send back to Taurus for warranty repair. However, this gun is still currently sitting at Taurus waiting to be repaired and they have had it since December! Seriously bad customer service. Hopefully the gun works properly when it is finally repaired! (Posted on 2/5/2017)

I Bought the Taurus 709 slim 9m on sale for $199. Wish it came with a second magazine like my S&W 40. Can't beat it for the price. I will be getting another clip in the near future. I shot 50 rounds with out a problem. I did clean it BEFORE I shot rounds. Love the gun. (Posted on 1/28/2017)

I have had a chance to try out the Taurus 709 slim. Everything about the purchase has gone very well. I ordered the gun and within a couple of days it arrived at my local Rural King store. I have had a chance to go to my range and try it out. It is a very good little gun. I was however surprised at the long trigger pull. I had no problems with the gun whatsoever. There were no failure to feed or failure to eject problems. The gun is small enough to fit in a pocket holster. After finding the correct pocket holster I had no problems drawing the pistol. I think that I will use this is my every day concealed carry weapon. I would highly recommend this pistol (Posted on 1/25/2017)

New to semi automatics. My second one in less that a year. I like the sa/da. The ruger i got earlier does not have that. The reviews I read before my Taurus said long pull on trigger. After buying it and shooting it, it seems long but still manageable. 150 rounds loosened up clip and gun works great. I like the compact size and ease of operation. (Posted on 1/22/2017)
709 slim carry gun Review by Beepee

I bought my 709fs slim a year ago. This gun has performed as a carry gun should. I have had no issues at all and eats every type of ammo i have run thru it . I have tested numerous brands of practice and carry ammo. The only ammo i haven't tried is steel case ammo and i don't use that in any of my guns. The 709 slim is easy to conceal. The gun only came with one magazine but i put a call in to Taurus and purchased two more magazines. This gun serves me well and has been a quality purchase for a great price. (Posted on 1/22/2017)

Not good Review by Sam65

Got my Slim through Rural King at a good price. Shot one magazine through it, and it jammed every time after that. Called the King, and found out they won't stand behind the guns they sell. Told me to call Taurus. Called them, and the girl asked what ammunition I had used. Told me that was the wrong brand for the Slim, and recommended Winchester. Told me I could return the gun only after firing 250 or 300 rounds through the gun. I am not into shooting a gun that isn't working properly. Disappointed in Rural King and Taurus both. Won't be buying there again, and I won't have another Taurus. It is a shame because I love the feel and weight. Just a bad experience all around. Makes a great looking paper weight though!!

Good type of surprise! Review by Artillery Art

Bought my Taurus "Slim" (and it IS "slim"!) on a whim after seeing the lowball sale price in the RK Sunday flyer. Didn't expect much but was I EVER WRONG! Functions without a flaw with everything from old, OLD surplus Mil stuff to handloads! Used hardball exclusively, both brass- and cheapie steel-cased ammo. BTW RK runs some super specials on ARMSCOR 9mm: Good Stuff! Dead on sight-wise at close range; which is what it was made for. Surprisingly mild recoil considering the center of gravity is in the slide and the slide itself sits well above the web of the hand. Almost, but not quite.....pocketable. An easy carry regardless. Ergonomics are nigh perfect. Safety sure and easy to work. Grip is comfortable and fits my piano-player fingers very nicely. I have supreme confidence in this little gem. Any regrets? Of course I wish it were made in the USA but I buy lots of domestic stuff, too. Was a bit surpised by the somewhat high cost of additional mags, but I'm sure the after-market people will take advantage of this pretty quickly. And RK makes the sale easy if not overly quickly. Use the time to browse the store: always something new that you need around the house, shop, or farm! A+++++ (Posted on 12/6/2016)

Ordered one Taurus 9mm at 239.00, my friend told me they were on sale at Vances 219.00. Asked RK to match was told they won't price match guns. To get my money back I had to drive to the store and give them my card ,no one seemed to no how to do this . Didn't have to drive to the store to order on line . If you order from them on line , make sure it is exactly what you want so you don't have to spend 2-3hours in returning it (Posted on 8/1/2016)
GREAT price. Review by Bobby D.

Only foible I can think of they do NOT include 2 clips like Ruger normally does.
I bought a 2nd clip at RK for $30.00.
Took the gun home, loaded both clips and set a target up. From 15 paces, (45ft) it
shot great. NO adjustments necessary. Other than 2 "flyers" (my fault) I put
10 rounds out of 12 in a paper plate size target.
btw: I think Secret Service and FBI's final training and qualifying, as a good shooter
is 7 paces or 21 feet... (Posted on 8/1/2016)

I have owned this gem for over a year. Unfortunately I bought the gun before I discovered R K . I paid significantly more.
I have put 500 rounds through it without a single burp. So easy to conceal! I practice from 15 to 20 yards and placing all shots
within an 8" paper plate is great for this average shooter. Next purchase will be from R K ! (Posted on 2/22/2016)

the sa/da was the seller for me, as I can't stand da only guns. The trigger pull is heavy for my liking but for the price, I can live with it. I agree with the other reviewers on the short reset. I have to say there are a lot of gun snobs out there that bash Taurus and I can say that I have yet to find there points valid. I own several guns from different manufactures and would buy another from Taurus. If I had one gripe it would be that they are made in Brazil. I would always prefer to have a " Made in the USA" label on anything I own but thats just me. (Posted on 2/6/2016)

I caught the PT709 on sale in November for $219 and bought it on a whim even though I already have a couple 9mm semi-autos including a fairly new M&P Shield. I enjoy shooting this gun every bit as much, maybe more, than the much more expensive Shield. I took it to the range almost immediately upon purchase without cleaning the gun first. I had two FTE on the first magazine and thought "oh boy," maybe I wasted my money, but I put about 100 rounds more through it that first day with no more malfunctions. I've since cleaned the gun and put 175 more rounds through it, and again with zero hiccups. I've fired Remington, PMC, American Eagle, and TULA hardball ammo through it and a couple magazines each of Sig Sauer and Hornady Critical Defense JHPs with good reliability. If I had seen and shot the Taurus before purchasing the Shield, I probably never would have bought the more expensive gun. The only reason I gave 4 stars on quality is that the finish on the black gun is reflective of its lower cost. It's not a pretty gun, but I love the way it shoots. (Posted on 12/31/2015)

The Taurus 709 Slim is a decent gun. It feels good in your hand, despite no rubber grip. What I like about it most is the reset. It resets in about 3/16", which is OUTSTANDING! It would be better if it had a double stack magazine, or another way to hold more than the 7 and 1 in the chamber. It would also be nice to have a rubberized grip. I would buy this again.

I purchased this firearm on a whim. Frankly, I did not expect much from it as it was very inexpensive and to be honest Taurus has not had the best reputation for quality. Well, I have to say that I was very surprised at the quality and the functionality of this firearm. It is accurate for what it was intended for and it functions every time quite well. No FTF or FTE. Only complaint I had was it came with one magazine - I searched and found another magazine for about $39 - rather expensive, but I felt I needed at least two magazines. I am very satisfied with this purchase - it can be placed in your pocket and it is not too heavy or obvious. I think I made a good decision. It has gone thru about 200 rds for me and it shows very little in wear. Make sure you clean the firearm after each session. Also, the take down for dis-assembly is like a Glock. That threw me for a while till I saw how to do it on a youtube session. Once you see it done it becomes a no brainer. I would buy it again.

I bought one of these about two months ago and I'm quite satisfied. My only complaint is that the bluing is wearing off the sharp corners of the slide where it rubs my polymer holster.This is a small price to pay because it is very accurate,easy to shoot,and carry's nicely. You can't find a better value!! (Posted on 11/8/2015)
