Taurus 709 Slimline Usage and Features
Are You Right or Left Handed?
What features does this gun have that appealed to you?
I’m a petite woman and the compact size for the caliber and small grip were what initially caught my attention
Tell us about shooting this gun.
My gun is really fun to shoot I was surprised by the amount of recoil it packs this is due to a lightweight polymer frame
How does it fit your hand, how do you like the sights, how difficult is it to rack the slide, how would you describe the trigger pull, and how would you describe the recoil?
I have a very small hand and this gun fits great (fit is a big issue for me since I have hands the size of an 8 yr old) sights are easy to read for a beginner, racking my gun is very easy I was shown to do a push pull rack and this helps a lot! This gun has a longer trigger pull that takes some getting used to, I was surprised at the recoil I’ve shot full sized 9mm before with less recoil I didn’t know that the smaller gun would have more kick but over all I love my gun it fits me!
How reliable is it?
I carry it everyday
Any problems with any type of ammunition?
