    Good little firearm
    Purchased this while on sale so my girlfriend can shoot with me at the range. She’s not comfortable with my Taurus .38 or other 9mm because of the size so I figured for the price it was worth a shot. Great firearm for ...the price and for someone her size. She feels extremely comfortable shooting this and has a lot of fun with it. We’ve put 100 plus rounds through it without any issues. more

    If I Had to Buy it Again I Would
    Taurus gets a lot of heat from the gun community but this is probably one of the best 9mm concealable handguns on the market in my opinion and I'll explain why-Low Cost: Sure you could buy a nice little Kimber (and man a...re they nice!) but you're paying a good penny-Easy breakdown: For beginners or even enthusiasts, this gun is easy to break down and clean and doesn't feel like a chore-Manual Safety: Even some higher end guns don't have that!-Trigger Key Lock: Again, most guns don't have that!-Taurus Guarantee: If it doesn't function, send it in and they'll fix it for you more

    Excellent value ... surprisingly reliable ...
    For not much more than the price of Hi-Point, you get a way better gun. Feels well-made in the hand, shoots accurately for a small pistol and has been very reliable thus far, using all types of cheap and premium ammo, bo...th 115 and 124 grain varieties. Has same type of take-down lever as the Glock and is easy to take apart and clean. The grip feels good in my hands, even though my pinkie hangs below the gun. The slide is easy to rack for those with weak hands. The gun is none too heavy and is easy to carry with IWB holster. more

    Good weapon, but excellent value
    I do enjoy shooting this, but I did have to get used to that first shot after racking the slide- it is a long trigger pull, especially when you shoot higher end weapons more often. This initial long SA pull is intended a...nd not a defect, but it got me to flinch the first time! Each reset and shot following that was consistent and felt great in matters of trigger pull. more

    Nice Conceal
    Inexpensive gun that makes for a good carry weapon. I've put over 300 rounds through it with zero issues. I've put FMJ, hollow points, my handholds, and this gun has been spot on. Small gun, but easy to hold on to.

    Great starter 9mm, I put over 300 rounds of ammo in this gun and no problems . A lot of people in the gun community like to talk down about Taurus but it's their lost. This gun is awesome , easy to clean, easy to conceal... and fun to shoot. The price point is perfect for people looking to get into guns and it will not break the bank. I only use Federal & Westchester ammo. more

    Great pistol for size
    I have been looking for a good gun for concealed carry for a while. I did not want anything smaller than a 9mm but did not want to spend a lot either. After reading the reviews for this one and going to BPS to see it in ...person I decided to purchase it. It is very light and easy to conceal. I must say that I am very satisfied with it. Initially I was concerned that it only came with one mag and other reviews mentioned that it was difficult to find extra mags. However, it was not difficult to find them at all. more

    Mixed emotions.
    I own several Taurus handguns and have never had any issues. I bought the 709 slim in May and the gun was defective right out of the box. After calling Taurus and trying various things and receiving parts from Taurus the... gun was shipped to Taurus in the beginning of June. End of September I finally received the gun back from Taurus and per the repair invoice, it was pretty much a brand new gun. Second time to the range the gun fired flawlessly, no issues what so ever. the gun is very accurate, concealable, and easy to shoot. I would recommend this gun as I feel that it can be hit or miss with any firearm as far as the manufacturing. I was discouraged with the time it took to repair the gun, but now that I have it and it works I am very happy with my purchase. more

    Great gun for the price
    I nearly rated this a 4 as the sights out of the box needed significant adjustment; however, they are adjustable. G&A fired 1000 rounds without any jams and thus far I've found the same. A much better grip feel than ...the Sig 250 and 290 and ultimate concealable. Extended 8mm mag available and gives you a place for your pinky. Can even get good 10 round mags for a second clip you can carry. If you can shoot accurately with this pistol then there's no reason to spend more on anything else. Comes with a lifetime warranty. more

    Great sub pistol
    I purchased this pistol about a month ago and have taken it to the range several times. I have fired the cheapest of the cheap and the best of the best ammo through it without any issues. Even performed great with hollow... points. You can field stip this gun in seconds for cleaning. For a sub compact the recoil is really good. It has adjustable sights. It also has a double single action whis is rare for this size of a gun. It also comes with a free one year NRA membership. I have recommended this gun to friends and family. Great gun for the price. more

    Great gun for the money!
    All reviewers that had this gun misfire or misfeed right out of the box, need to go see a trained firearms instructor. I let my daughter shoot it first out of the box. It misfed, misfired and was very frustrating. I didn...'t try to shoot it, and put it back in the box. I took it back to the gunshop, and they took it in the back and it fired perfectly. I and my daughter went back with them, and they showed us what the problem was. My daughter was limp wristing the gun. Once she held the gun properly, it fired perfectly for her also! It has been a great little gun, and is very accurate! more

    Great little concealed carry piece
    Snagged one of these for my wife and she loves it. Sights were right on the money out of the box with all but the 147gr ammo & even then only off for elevation a few inches. Found a happy medium between her practice ...ammo and carry ammo then left the sights at that as at the potential ranges she'd be shooting in self-defense it wouldn't make all that much difference. more

    Great pistol, have put several hundred rounds down range without any issues. Gun is very slim and fits real well for conceal carry. Very good trigger. It reminds me of a glock, maybe a little better, with a much cheaper ...price tag! Only complaint is that extra mags are hard to come by. more

    Looks nice won't shoot.
    Taurus PT709. This gun is garbage every time my wife tried to shoot it it would FTE, I bought it for her and she was NOT HAPPY!!! I cleaned it and tried it several more times with no luck every time first or second shot ...it would FTE. After repeated cleaning and shooting 500+ rounds still no luck. Maybe just a lemon but the wife would not pick it up again. So I got rid of it and bought her a Glock witch I should have done in the first place. No more value guns for this family. :-( more

    My son also had this same problem, a 3 shot full auto. After he told me this I instructed him to disassemble and clean out the the area around firing pin hole. Too many people never fully clean a firearm of preservative ...before use. I always do this. Taurus puts a healthy amount on these at the factory. Just my two cents. Oh, and by the way, no more full autos after he cleaned it. It is now his favorite carry weapon. more

    Nice little gun
    Some reviews on other websites complained about the accuracy, operation with higher ammo and disassembly. Right out the box, with basic target ammo, first two shots were right on. It's a much lighter gun and my pinkie ca...me off the grip, but leaning in a little more cleaned that up. The manual does not recommend +p or +p+ ammo, so I plan on following that recommendation. Disassembly does take a bit a of a knack, but once you get it no problem (point the gun down and palm it with your fingers over the slide). For the price, I don't see how you could get a better gun. Especially since I have young children, the slide lock is a great seller. I don't plan on putting hundreds of round through at a time, so long term wear won't be a problem. Also, the single action after the first shot allows for some rapid fire...if the range manager isn't watching. more

    Hit or miss
    After a modest "break in" period with some FTF FTE issues things started going smoothly. However this last trip to the range it suffered a complete failure. After firing all 7 rounds in 3 seconds (one pull of t...he trigger) it is back at the manufacturer. This is an absolute hit or miss firearm. Buyer beware.... more

    I couldn't pass on the sale price for a 9mm. I and my 2 boys, 3 brothers have fired 500+ rounds of various brands of hollow point, FMJ and nylon bullets. Not one problem. So three lefties and three righties with various ...hand grip and techniques, the 709 grouped well at 25 yards. This is my first and possibly last pistol in the house. I can't as yet see why another is needed. I'll use it till it wears out. more

    love my little 709
    I love the size of this weapon. It's super-easy to carry and I have had nothing but good luck with good ammo, although with some cheap stuff I did have some (about 1 out of a box of 50) rounds that did not fire on the fi...rst strike. The second-strike capability of this weapon was nice. The single-stack magazine makes it SO MUCH more comfortable to carry than you can imagine without trying it. Although I wish the advertised 9-round extended magazine was actually available as Taurus advertised it's now been a couple of years and I have yet to see one. Gotta give this gun a big 5-stars and remind anyone that buys a Taurus weapon new that they come FULL of packing grease and that it is IMPERITIVE THAT THIS BE CLEANED UP GOOD before you can expect the weapon to perform, but it's my experience that they are good weapons, especially if you're on a budget like I am. Thanks Taurus. more

    Got the gun and took straight to the range out of the box, no cleaning or lube, (the gun was oily as hell wen I got it) jus to see how it would perform with some cheap aluminum case ammo. 100 rounds down range no problem...s. Accurate for a subcompact but this is the first subcompact I ever shot. Bought for 208 and couldn't be happier. Aftter the range I took it home and cleaned it and the gun was filthy as expected. Good gun at a awesome price and comes with a lifetime repair or replacement warranty. more

    I looked into a small carry/conceal to throw in the car.Something small for my wife and dependable.I have had my eye on this for sometime from my local dealer @ 299.00 and checked Bud's and what do you know,they are 90 d...ollars cheaper...less the 25 FFL fee .Bought it and 2 days later it was here.Was delayed 1 day due to the swearing in of our 45th President.....but nothing to do with Bud's.I have bought several pistols from Bud's and they NEVER fail to impress...fast shipping...a little heavy on the oil on the gun....Taurus's thing I guess.Havent taken it to the range yet , but feels just fine in wife's hands...and I'm a bigger guy...and still feels fine to me...put it in your pocket and go... have always felt fine with Taurus and Bud's.Great job guys...just killer fast shipping......A+++ Bud's I will buy from you again....this time checking YOUR prices FIRST. more

    Fantastic purchase! Received at my local dealer within a couple days. Perfect size and caliber for me to carry concealed. Took it out of the box, wiped it down and went to the range with it for the first time yesterday. ...I ran 150 rounds of cheap ammo through it and had zero issues and all rounds fired. Great, accurate little 9mm. Good choice for a concealed carry weapon. Super easy to break down and clean also. more

    I like the 709 Slim a lot, in fact I purchased a second one on Bud's to keep at home while I'm carrying one. On the range it reliably handled any kind of ammo I put through it. It also has some nice features like the adj...ustable rear sights, simple take down pins and a safety. Field stripping and cleaning is a breeze. The Slim is not hammer fired, yet it is single/double action. After the first shot the trigger pull is short, light and crisp. It's a good idea to use the safety because it's easy to fire accidentally . Maybe the best part is the price of the Slim. I don't think you can get a better deal on a 9mm carry gun. more

    Nice fit and finish. Feels good in my hand. I bought an IWB and ankle holster to go with it. Easy to conceal and carry/wear. Take down was a bit of a problem, but after 100 rounds it was a bit looser. I really like the s...afety... long and easy to operate (not like some smaller thumb safetys that almost require repositioning the weapon to operate). I did however experience erratic trigger pull weights. Like, all over the place. I wish I would have read about that on-line prior to my purchase because it likely would have steered me away. For some shots the trigger felt really light. For others (about 60{eaab930b38fe3bdbc026aaf7633a8694b34643c8388770a87cf764268751ba5b}) the pull seemed to be EXTREMELY heavy. For about 20{eaab930b38fe3bdbc026aaf7633a8694b34643c8388770a87cf764268751ba5b} of the shots the trigger was so hard to pull my hand would shake... I actually thought I had the safety on! I took the gun to an authorized dealer who can send it back to Taurus for free even though they didn't sell me the weapon (it would have cost me $50 to send it myself - so, nice service). In a conversation wth Taurus they said they are aware of the issue and will be able to help me out. Jury is out until I get the gun back (they said about 4-6 weeks, but on-line reports from similar issues state 2-4). more

    I got the gun in 2 days after ordering, this does not surprise me as I had the same service with 3 other guns I bought. have run 3 hundred rounds through it with zero problems, at first I thought Houdini would havehave l...oved to get his hands on the trigger. but after about 200 hundred rounds though it I now respect it. I read several articles by the pundits that claimed loose magazines, wobbly slides not feeding well stove pipes. As have had several Tarusus over the last30 or so years so I bought it anyway and glad that I did one possible complaint I might have is I feel the slide finish may not be the best and if you are picky abiut these things it might be better to get the stainless slide, really like the gun. more

    Great CCW piece for those on a budget. It's a SA and switches to DA for restrike if needed which is a neat feature. Only comes with one magazine but spares are widely available now.

    Had heard good and bad about Taurus prior to purchase but at 204.00 " I notice the price was since raised 3 days after I ordered" while local gun shops locally were selling for 349.00 and the lifetime warranty it was pre...tty much a no brainer so I took the leap. To level set I own firearms from Glock, Ruger, FNH, IWI, CZ, Century Arms, Remington and now Taurus. So I have a pretty good idea of build quality when I see it and feel it. This firearms fit,finish and build was on par with all fore mentioned. The slim when I received as others have noted was covered in a ton of grease prior to the range session I took it down, cleaned it and lubed it. All looked good but how does it RUN ????? The gun was fed 200 rounds of 115 GR brass perfecta as well as one 7 rounds mag once the gun was filthy of Hornaday Critical Defense 115 GR FTX rounds to ensure proper functioning of Self Defense rounds. The factory mag was used as well as another I purchased at the FFL dealer that was a made in the USA official Taurus mag that I put a pierce finger extender on. My observations....For 204.00 heck for 349.00 from a local dealer which still puts it under the price of anything else offered in this class this firearm is a winner... 0 malfunctions of any sort...it just ran and ran....accuracy was on par if not a tad better with Glock, SW and Ruger. The trigger absolutely smokes the Glock, Ruger or SW on like firearms. Safety is there if u choose to use it. I may order one in stainless ! Take down is similiar to glock with no pins or anything.....even has polished feed ramp ! more

They should really have two ...but it's all good. Added the finger extension so it's smooth as silk in my handle. Easy to make adjustments on rear sights. As usual, buying online was not an issue, three days later I received the email to come and pick it up. The staffer who assisted me in the purchase were great.

    First for the last 20+ years I have collected several hundred fire arms over my life time. That being said the last fire arm I purchased was from Buds. Buds I must say you all have a unique fast and very professional bus...iness one of the very best I have ever did business with or even seen for that matter. I would like to say thank you for doing such a awesome job for us your customer. No worries and top notch. Second on the newly purchase of the Taurus PT 709 it self that has been added to my collection. Today shot and fired well over 1,000 rounds with no issues of any kind. Product regardless of past issues other consumers may of reported one must admit it has improved. My Fire arm looks good. My Fire arm feels good in the hand and shoots as it was manufactured to do so. Main reason defense when need be. What else can one say. Thank You more

    Overall the Taurus is a nice compact 9 for the money spent. I wish it had a finger extension on the magazine for folks with larger hands and a second mag would have been nice but again you get what you pay for.

    Taurus 709 Slim is a nice feeling gun. I did notice front sight was pretty crooked. Upon adjusting rear sight for windage I actually ran out of adjustment to sight in the gun at 7 yards. I did not clean the gun prior to ...shooting. Using 115 grain UMC 9mm ball I experienced several partial feed problems and had to hit the rear of the slide to chamber the round. This occurred several times during the first several clips. As of this writing I have put 70 rounds through the gun but still having the feeding problem but somewhat less frequent. I did take down and clean the gun to see if that would help. I will continue to use the gun but may need to cotact Taurus if problem persists. As usual, Bud's was great. more

    I'm very satisfied with this Taurus. after I picked it up from my local FFL I took it home and cleaned it thoroughly. I then purchased an Uncle Mikes IWB holster size 12. Fits perfectly and carried it the next day. The l...ittle 9mm is unnoticeable standing and sitting. I usually carry a Bersa thunder 380 but this gun is much more comfortable to carry. It is really lightweight. Took it to the range and It really performed very well. Ran 50 rounds flawlessly. Easy breakdown and cleaning. Really can't go wrong with this piece. more

    I received the gun after 3 days which is great. After looking hard at the pistol vs the picture there are a couple of differences that maybe no big deal to most people but I like getting what I see or what they sell or p...ost on the web site. It makes me wonder if this is a closeout or discontinued item. It came in a box that had been crushed but no damage to the product. No frills, only 1 mag and Bud's description states "sights are fixed" but my gun has adjustable rear sights which is a real plus. The pistol was packed in a oil filled plastic bag which was nasty but I did a thorough cleaning. Unlike the PT 738 .380, sort of a little sister pistol, this one has a loaded chamber indicator and a safety switch with white dots on the front and read sights. For $25 less. Now that's a real bargain no matter how you look at it. It needs a magazine extender for your pinky finger. Pretty, it is not but for $182, free shipping and no sales tax how can you go wrong. I have several Taurus products and they all function great unlike a couple of Kimber's that were sent back for work several times and cost hundreds of bucks more. Never again Kimber. I haven't shot this gun yet but I am sure when I do it will work as expected. more

    I have had limited chance to shoot the Taurus 709, about 40 rounds so far, with no problems. The only negative that I will note is the very heavy trigger pull.

Coudn't be happier with the choice thanks to the reviews and YTu...be videos. Added a 2nd mag. with a Pearce grip extender. Both good additions. About 200 rounds down range and working better every mag. Only complaint is the mag release button, a little tight and small. A friend saw it and is planning on getting one for himself. Happy with the purchase and Buds service. more

    Very happy with this purchase from Buds Gun Shop. First things first the gun was shipped fast I ordered on Friday and received on Thursday. Gun wise you cannot beat this price. This is an excellent weapon for the price ...and an excellent choice for concealment. If you have never held the 709 I recommend going to a local gun shop and doing so before purchasing online. I would also recommend getting an extended mag or just a pinky extension. I went with the Pearson pinky extension and it has given me perfect control over the 709 and has made it extremely accurate. I would highly recommend this weapon to anyone that's looking for a reliable budget carry gun. more

    I was able to pick up this pistol for the unbelievable price of $168 shipped. The LOOONG trigger pull takes a bit of getting used to, especially if you have a Shield or Glock, but through 250 rounds it ate everything I c...ould feed it without a single malfunction. Sights are simple 3-dot, but it seems to point nicely and deliver the goods with surprising accuracy. I put a Hogue Handall Jr on as well as a Pearce Grip pinky extension, and it fits my hand nicely. Recoil is not too bad, and follow-up shots were surprisingly accurate. Came so soaked in oil that I needed to ask for a paper towel at the FFL just to inspect. Upon inspection, however, gun was 100{b97d1e233943acbc5bec4a5a0eedb61bfdb74366d3838ae2e92b2b7621b55027}, and a few pieces of paperwork later, I had my pistol. I have another Taurus, and while some may feel negatively about the brand, I have always had good luck with mine through thousands of rounds.

    Very disappointed! I was unable to get more than two shots off before a miss feed and jam! After the fourth time of removing the clip and locking the breech open the get the miss fed round unstuck from the chamber I said... one more chance and this is it, I thought may be it would loosened up and start working. Well I was wrong!!!! I left it jammed and went in and found a phone# and called Taurus and got a return label e-mailed to me and sent it back, they said at least 6 weeks? They've had it three weeks now, no word. I will probably trade it for a revolver when it finally does come back! more

    I received my Taurus PT 709 a few days ago. So far, I've only got about 50 rounds through it, but it seems reliable so far. I had one FTE which was due more to operator error than to the reliability of the piece. The pri...ce was so good, I couldn't pass it up. I purchased it along with a Taurus M85 which is also a very nice gun for the money. Without going into great detail, I can honestly say I like the 709 better than my PT 111 G2 which has, so far, worked flawlessly(500 Rds). Overall, I've been very pleased with my Taurus firearms, so much so that I ordered another 709 for my girlfriend to train with. After a few hundred rounds, if the gun continues to function reliably, I'll throw it into my rotation of ccw along with a few other very nice firearms from Bud's. To date, all of my transactions with Bud's Guns have been a pleasure. I'll review the other 709 when it comes in. CHEERS!! more

    Out of the box, the trigger seemed stiff. I lubed the action with ballistol and it completely changed the feel of the gun. I will admit I also polished the feed ramp with a dremel tool, which I do to all my guns that nee...d it. I took it to the range with a Walther PPS, a Taurus G2, a Springfield XDS, and a SIG 2022. The end result was that the larger the gun, the better the group. The SIG was the hands down winner, and the second was the Walther PPS. But for the price, the 709 was completely reliable, and accurate for a compact pistol. This gun is a steal for the price. You only get one mag, but if you need more than eight shots, you already lost. I liked the feel of the G2 better, but it is $100 more. You don't need 12 rounds. Buy it. more

Hi-point price, Taurus qualit...y. My 7th purchase from Bud's and 3 more using Bud's SWEET layaway plan. I open carry the PT809 but keep this sweet jewel tucked away when working. 2 stage trigger helps me feel more comfortable since I carry one in the chamber with the safety on. You can't go wrong with this pistol, keep your family and yourself protected without drawing unwanted attention from those anti gun bozos and you don't have to break the bank for a reliable and safe pistol that will go bang should the need arise. 5 stars once again to Taurus and Bud's!! more

    First buying through Buds was a breeze and the price couldn't be beat. Now, the Taurus 709 slim is a great gun for the money. Not as small as I'd like and the trigger is not as smooth as I'd like, but for sub $200 it's h...ard to beat. I put 200 rounds through it the first day I got it. Not one problem or misfeed even with cheapo ammo. Once I adjusted the sights it was spot on and i really enjoyed shooting it. Again, it's not the best single stack 9mm by far, but for the price it is very very good. more

    Overall I think this weapon is not worth the money even at 189.00. The reasoning is due to a cheaply made pistol. I knew even before purchasing this weapon that I was not going to getting quality. I have put 50 rounds th...rough the gun 1 our of every 10 shots one failed to enter the chamber. I simply just palmed the slide and the bullet would load. Understanding that i have not fully broke the pistol in maybe it will get better overtime. Another problem I had was that after a while my trigger finger started to hurt after the 25 rounds or so. more

    For this review I'll be comparing this Slim to the More popular M&P Shield. Pros: Light recoil for a single stack. Slide locks back on last shot. Rear sights are adjustable. Accurate for a single stack. Cons: Grip is a l...ittle short. Trigger is a little heavy. Over all thoughts: The gun went bang every time I pulled the trigger using factory ammunition. I tried Federal Target, Perfecta Target, Tula and some hand loads. Only the hand loads gave the gun any issues whatsoever. I also tried out some Hornady Critical Defense and Horandy Critical Duty and had no function issues. The only thing I was really upset about with this gun is I wish it had a factory standard Magazine that was made like the M&P shield for a larger grip. There are aftermarket magazines but I really wish Taurus included one in the purchase instead of the smaller flush 7 round magazine. Compared to the M&P Shield by S&W this gun is nearly on par. The recoil, sights and trigger feel very similar. I personally LIKE that this one has a manual safety. Some Shields do, some don't. If you need a single stack 9mm handgun and you are on a budget this is an excellent choice for a firearm. It handled all my self defense loads and I can hit very well at 21 feet. If you need a gun for your CCDW class and you're scared because you've never shot a gun, this is an excellent first time choice gun. I managed to get mine with tax included for $202.02. This is an absolute steal for the gun. I recommend a larger magazine for people with big hands such as myself. Expect to pay $30-40 for one of these aftermarket magazines and make sure you test it thoroughly. As is the gun is 90{17d172c1ec8503d0b4007ba23f1356e21a275c56cf184b4ce3bb4f7d8ca94ce1} on par with a M&P Shield. IF it came with a longer 8 round magazine standard it would Blow the Shield out of the water with it's price. I give it a 4 Star rating. If it came with a longer Magazine it would be a 5 star gun. more

    This gun is lightweight durable and slim as advertised. I bought it to be my concealed weapon, it's fits nice on the hip. The sites were accurate right out of the box shoots great no failures at all. What a great gun for... under $200. This is my second purchase through buds I find them to be consistently Awesome. more

    I was skeptical about this pistol at first but after reading a few of the reviews I gave it a try. The pistol arrived super fast from buds and upon receiving it I field stripped it and gave it a good cleaning. The fit an...d finish of the gun is great! It comes with adjustable rear sight and one mag. Took it to the range and ran both hollow point and full metal jacket ammo through it. No failures of any type and I loved the trigger. It was very accurate as well and not too bad on recoil. This will now be in my EDC rotation! I urge you to grab one, you won't be disappointed. more

    First time customer. Gun was delivered quick, and no damage was done to the package. Had it transferred to M and M Guns. Awesome transfer place. As for the firearm, everything but the recoil was to my liking. This little... gun can pack a punch. Went through 100 rounds and not one jammed.

    I love this pistol so far. I have put 250 rounds through it. Mostly Federal Premium FMJ, but also Winchester "white box" since I have heard online some people have had issues with it. Not 1 failure to feed, not one jam. ...No issues of this nature at all. I will say that it shoots a hair low for my liking. I have the rear adjustment at it maximum height and it bullseyes at 10 yards like that, giving no room for adjustment. I really love the feel of this in the hand. Recoil is very manageable considering it's size. I can fire off 150 rounds at a time easy and not be fatigued. I'm very pleased with this pistol. As for reports of it shooting VERY low, I did experience this at first. When I first received this, I cleaned it about as well as I would any other firearm after getting it home from the range. I then took it out and shot 100 rounds through it. It shot about 6 inches low at 10 yards. I was floored. I broke it down and gave it a more thorough cleaning. I also adjusted my grip a bit to apply more pressure with my off hand and released some with my main hand. Between the cleaning and adjustment in grip the accuracy is spot on. Some notes: This kit only contains 1 magazine. The magazine does not have any sort of external means to depress the spring like some other magazines have, and that spring is very rigid. You will need to plan on getting a speed loader, if you don't already have one. more

    Bud's Gun Shop offered this pistol at only 182.00, which was great. I just fired about 250 rounds of fmj on it out of the box. There were no hangups or hiccups. The single action trigger was really nice. Remember this gu...n is a bit on the snappy side, so if you have large hands you may want to get the pinky extension and add a padded wrap on it's slender grip. I was hoping for a little better accuracy, but, I am still going to give this gun a "5" for it's purpose, and that I was only at the range once with it and need to get the pinky ext. and grip wrap. In my experience Bud's staff has been very helpful in problem solving, even when you want to give up, they don't. more

    Very nice, slim handgun. Easy to handle and shoots well; has a nice trigger and is capable of a second strike on unfired primer. No issues with cycling ammo. Love the adjustable rear sight, loaded chamber indicator, manu...al safety, nice 3-dot sights, light weight. Price is very low for a striker fired polymer handgun that can be easily carried. Easy to disassemble the gun for cleaning. Simple to do business with Buds Gun Shop and they had the best price on this item. Drawback: only comes with a single magazine. more

    Shipped well and shoots great. No problems and 300 rounds down range so far. It seems like this version or model is slightly updated compared to the ones I'm seeing in older youtube videos from when this first came out. ...The extractor seems updated and its mechanism doesn't remove from the rear of the gun as in the original model but instead comes out just like in the PT111. Aftermarket parts and mags are scarce. Stay away from the extended mags for now as they seem to have a lot of complaints on forums. Consider grip extensions for your mags as this doesn't have a lot of room for the pinky. Worth buying a laser because of the small and short sights. The LaserLyte Taurus 738 TCP, 709/740 SLIM laser works well for me. more

    This is my 6th purchase from Buds. Always a pleasure to do business. Took my Slim to the range on Sunday and fired off just over 60 rounds of 115 gr Fiocchi and Federal and 124 gr of Blazer Brass. No issues. All rounds c...ycled perfectly. Recoil is quite manageable, and think this is due to the Pearce Grips I put on the magazine. For a pistol in this price range of near $200, it is a great purchase. The reviews in general for this pistol are pretty positive as far as function and reliability. I considered other similar pistols like the Diamondback DB9 and Keltec PF9, but the reviews for these are mixed. The Slim is also an ideal size for pocket carry, which is my preferred method of conceal carry with a pocket holster. The pistol is no where near the quality of the Glock G43 or the Sig Sauer p238, or the Walther PPS, but I am very satisfied with this purchase and the price. A Very good "Taurus quality" firearm. more

    My Taurus 709 Slim came with some protection oil on the outside of the gun. I just went ahead and cleaned the gun inside and out. Headed out to the gun range with no idea how this gun was going to shoot. I had some cheap... 9mm ammo and wanted to see if the gun would shoot it. Big surprise. I went through 100 rounds without any issue. The gun is also very accurate. I was hitting the chest every time I shot. I was about 50 feet away from the target. This gun also is small enough to be holstered inside the waist. I carry it everywhere and it never bothers me. This gun is a steal for the price. more

    I put 50 rounds through the gun today and didn't have a single issue. It's a nice gun to shoot. It fits very well in med to small hands. I Only have two negative things say. One is that is has a very heavy trigger pull. ...Second is that it only comes with one clip but that's also why it is a cheaper price. Over all I think it is a great gun for the amount of money it costs. A lot of bang for your buck. One other perk is the lifetime warranty from Taurus on the gun. Buds guns shipped it fast and I would buy from them again. more

    So your curious about the 709? Well don't be, there are questions on some websites about it's reliability but I'm telling you mine is fine. It ran 2 mags worth of cheap bulk ammo without fail. Once upon a time Taurus wou...ld send guns in nice plastic cases with 2 mags but not these days. I got my gun in a typical Taurus box with one mag. ( it's annoying they don't give you 2 but for under 200 bucks are you complaining? ) when I bought, my gun my local store had an extra which I quickly bought to go with my new 709. The extended mags have yet to materialize so don't hold your breath. Out of the box accuracy was good but my gun shot high. It was straight though and once I tweaked the sight a bit lower it was knocking the 9 inch plate at 25 feet. It carries fine in holsters designed for the 111g2 but not the kydex or custom fitted setups ( most leather or nylon holsters will stretch to fit) it takes down just like a typical glock and yes you do have to pull the trigger to take it apart. Honestly it's a 200 dollar single stack 9mm so what are you complaining for. The trigger pull is a bit odd you've got to draw it almost all the way back to get the striker to release, the pull is heavier then 111g2 but the internals are almost identical so maybe the 709 trigger will loosen up. I see the far back break as a safety feature making it hard to accidentally pull it. The gun also has one other feature like the 111 a SA/DA striker. Yeah you pull and no bang then just pull again and mostly likely the gun will fire ( most times a gun fails to fire it's out of battery and pulling the trigger drops the slide into battery but on a glock or other striker gun you've got to rerack it not a Taurus) in all truth it's a nice option. You've also got tune up parts and optional sights to dress the gun up how you like it. Yeah trigicon makes night sights for it and you've got fiber optic ones aval too. They even make a trigger guard laser unit for this pistol ( a nice feature with limited round count) while they don't have quite the list of extras a glock might you've got enough options to make the 709 the gun you want it to be. Adjustable sights are a nice extra on a gun in this class. When you get it though give it a proper cleaning Taurus ships them very oily to preserve them in shipping. more

    Bought this gun from Buds to be my "summer ccw gun" because my Smith and Wesson SD9VE (that I also purchased from Buds) was just to big to conceal well enough for my taste here in South Dakota during the summer. I brough...t the gun home from my FFL, wiped it clean and fired about 50 rounds of federal premium thru it with no hiccups or anything. Not a lot of rounds thru it yet, but I'm impressed so far... As far as the gun goes I couldn't be happier. Extremely slim, lightweight, compact and accurate. Taurus did well when they made this gun. Thanks Buds. You guys are awesome. more

    Gun shipped fast total cost after paying my ffl for the transfer fee came to $226.52 I took the gun to the range without cleaning it and shot 100 rounds of Winchester white box 115 grain fmj without a single failure the ...first 50 rounds was to test function and to familiarize myself with the gun the secon box was loaded two rounds at a time and placed back in my iwb holster with my shirt covering it I practiced drawing the gun and putting two rounds on target as fast as I possibly could the gun shot accurately I managed to pull off quite a few shots in the center ring of the paper when I took my handgun carry permit class months ago we qualified on the range by shooting 50 rounds I believe anything outside of the 8 ring was a point deducted with that being said If my target was to be scored from the practice I did quick drawing and putting two rounds on target with the second box of ammo then I would of only had one point deducted and would of passed my test which to me is a good demonstration on the accuracy of this firearm more

    Buds first class. Fit and finish of this gun is excellent. Slim design is truly great for concealed carry. Sights are right on target. I used Legend ammo with no problems. I have large hands. The one problem I had was th...e trigger safety. With a large hand I had to adjust my trigger finger to depress the trigger safety so it would fire. This is due to the slim design. With a large hand you tend to over reach the trigger. With practice I got used to it. I wouldn't hesitate to carry this gun. You can't beat the price. more

    For a 9mm under $200 this seems like a very sturdy little pistol. Doesn't feel cheap or poorly made. Not too much packing grease to clean off out of the box. Slide functions smoothly and trigger doesn't have a bad pull. ...Even though its a smaller gun, it fits well in my hand unlike several other brands of subcompacts I've handled. Haven't had a chance to shoot it yet so i cant comment on the out of the box accuracy, but will update review when I do. On another note, my transaction with buds was smooth and very quick as usual.

    Read a lot of conflicting opinions about the Taurus PT709. I wanted something light weight and inexpensive and some reviews list this model as one of the top 5 best conceal carry weapons. Right out of the box I cleaned i...t thoroughly because there was a lot of packing grease to protect it during shipment. Took it to the range.....went through 200 rounds jam free. Heard a lot about you have to get passed the 'trigger'..........Still don't know what they are talking about. The weapon fired flawlessly....had to adjust the rear sight slightly...but that's about it. Recommend this weapon.

    I received my Taurus 709 on 8/11 after placing my order on 8/7. Kudos to Buds for fast shipping. It shipped with only 1 magazine and no case which makes sense considering its bare bones $181 price. An extra magazine will... run you about $29. It arrived covered in oil but after field stripping it the internals were pretty clean. After taking it to the range today and putting about 50 rounds of range ammo thru it I have no complaints. No FTEs or FTFs and was fairly accurate out of the box. I'm happy with this purchase. more

    Just bought a second because the first 709 was so perfect, I can't force a malfunction in it! It fires and feeds 100{d3bae317f4b9104ed15779213928c7befe8ec765e598a8e5c2eea88cf4001e90} every time and the finish was perfect.... Comes with only 1 magazine. It has a small key lock built in (so no cable locks). Comes with 2keys. Has fully adjustable rear sights. Sights are white 3 dot sights. Then of course the manual and coupon for a laser for it. The finish on my second one isn't as nice. Actually the finish is fine, but pins had rough protruding plastic sticking out of the holes (I filed them down). And the trigger is not identical as the first, but still good. Overall for the $181.50 I paid, I think its a 5star pistol. Will need a good cleaning at arrival. They come oiled to hell to survive the trip from Brazil. Love what Taurus is becoming! more

    My first polymer, first subcompact. Well, some prefer blondes, some brunettes. I prefer revolver and full sized pistols. After researching subcompacts I chose to spend only a little bit of money, so I got this. In gener...al I don't like the look or feel of polymer and this 709 is right in line. The small size and weight make this a snappy 9mm. Can't get my pinky on the grip. The double action is long and can feel resistance when pulling slowly. Single action is nice but not revolver single action. Mentally I can't get over so much plastic. But I knew this before buying. However, this is advertised as a concealed option at a low price. Well, that is what I'm seeing. As a nerd I read the manual advises to load the mag to break it in. I loaded it one week before the range and it worked fine. (It is still hard loading the last round without my 'lula). If I was looking for resale value, there are other choices. I have it as a part time concealed and glove box gun. I don't see myself firing more than 50 rounds per month with it as I FAR prefer my full sized guns. For the price and what it does I find little to criticize or praise. $200 and it goes bang. That's 3 stars in my book. Charge $350 and im not interested. more

    Very good weapon. Love the size, perfect for the wife. No misfires, very little kick. Looking to purchase another for my daughters. Bud's service was great!

    AS always, Buds was great! Shipping was fast, on time & date. The product is great & Taurus Slim is actually smaller than PPK. And it's a 9mm.

    I did a lot of research before purchasing and only found a handful of people that had issues. Mine works great, accurate, decently low recoil for size, no fte or ftl even with aluminum case and short HPs. Never one issue... i love it. Good gun and buds was quick. more

    Right size, right price, delivery was excellent. Handgun has no problems, I have fired factory ammo and my reloads thru it not a single problem. I read alot of reviews on this handgun with all the feed problems. I belie...ve the feed problems are due to weak wrists. more

    I had heard a lot of good things about this little gun, so I ordered one from Bud's last month. I just got around to shooting it today. Very disappointing. The pistol failed to load after firing 8 out of 10 times, the la...st one resulting in a jam. I chambered a round, fired that shell, but the second shell would fail to chamber. The trigger reset, but no bang. Same problem with another genuine Taurus magazine. I hate to have to send a gun off for a six week repair after waiting about 3 weeks to get it. I should have got the S&W Shield. more

    Well hello neighbors. I purchased two of the Taurus PT 709 and am very happy with both.I watched several reviews of PT709 and it got high marks from the people that was reviewing them along with some other pistols.I was ...looking for a compact pistol and a firearm sales person advised me to consider the Taurus TCP 38 opposed to paying more for other guns that would be more complicated for my wife to handle. I stumbled across the PT 709 and discovered that it was just a tad bit longer but had an external safety and ajustable rear sight this is when I watched several reviews .When I decided to purchase I found the overall transaction would be smoother through Buds Gun shop and was very pleased with the whole transaction.The PT 709 I like the feel of it cause it is a PT 709 slim My wife really likes it opposed to other pistols I have let her shoot .The value of it far out ways the price I payed so I purchased two.I have taken one and made it mine and I love it Added grip to it ok without it better with it .I purchased a magazine extension and it gives it a better look and feel. If you buy it from buds I believe you will be very satisfied . more

    Wow this may be the best budget 9mm it's about the same price point as a high point but not as ugly seems well built. I took it to the range shot 3 50 round boxes of federal fmj through it with no hiccups at all. A great... gun. And a great price. Buds was excellent to do business with as always. more

    Good shooting 9mm pistol, but the rear vertical sight adjustment moves all of the time. I put a dab of Locktite blue on the screw after the sights were aligned and so far, it's holding.

    Beware the magazine release button. Keep it clean and use "vegetable oil" so the plastic handle does not degrade. The Mag-release button will stick and drop your mags when least you expect it. Clean and lube it weekly.

    Bought this as a BUG and it is perfect for that use. Bud's service was great and the gun arrived three days earlier than expected. This is not my first purchase from Bud's and will not be my last.

    Overall, good purchase for the price. Have used for the past year and a half with no FTF or any other issues. Sometimes used as my wife's carry.

    This little 9mm is what I've come to expect from Taurus. Some people love them and some hate them. But I love them. Taurus has quality and reliability that won't break the bank. This little 9mm adds to my concealed carry... repertoire of handguns. I've fired 150 rounds through it with no stoppages or malfunctions. I'll put more through her in the coming weeks and update the review if necessary. I will say I own 6 Taurus handguns out of thirty total handguns, and none of the 6 have ever given me problems. more

    This is the third Taurus semi-auto 9mm handgun that I have purchased. Not tiny, but can be carried as a second weapon in an ankle holster. I’m sold on Tairus handguns. They are well made, accurate, and most importantly..., reliable. You get a lot of bang for the buck. more

    Have been very satified with the Taurus PT709 slim. Feels just right in my RH while handling with my LH is comfortable. I'm a firm believer that a handgun shooter should feel comfortable firing with either hand. One neve...r knows when your life or someone lesses may depend on that odd hand shoot. Ideal canceled carry pistol at Bud's affordable price! more

    This is my first gun. I shot over 500 rounds through it and I can say it ftf maybe 3 times & jamed once. Other than that it's a great gun

    Purchased 709 Slim, when I concluded my Glock 19 was great for home defense, but too large for me to carry. I've put 3000 rounds through both guns and have been pleasantly surprised with the performance of the Taurus. I'...m just as accurate with the 709 as with the Glock 19. Regardless of the ammo, the Taurus simply cycles through time after time; no FTF ever. That's normal with Glock, but a please surprise for the 709. Additionally, the trigger is much nicer on the 709. I enjoy shooting it, in many ways, more than my Glock. more

    Before I purchased this pistol I did a lot of research on it. After careful thought and many reviews later I decided to buy the Taurus 709 Slim and boy am I glad I did! Buds fast shipping and easy transfer through my FFL... makes every purchase a breeze. Thanks buds. I took the pistol out and cleaned it before taking it to the range. Once at the range I shot 200 rounds and never once had a FTF or FTE. And it comes straight outta the box pretty accurate. Overall I love this purchase. You won’t be let down with how reliable and sleek this gun is. And it’s a nice size for CCW. more
