    I have one. I have only shot it one time due to the weather. It fed with no
    problems. I was realy supprised, the recoil was quite mild for such a small, light pistol. I forgot to take the adjusting tool so I can not tell you about
    accuracy, but it is not a target pistol.

    We've sold a half dozen or so. One is going back with feeding/ejection problems. Three of the part timers at the shop bought one each, and one of theirs is the one going back to Taurus (problems with each and every brand of ammo). Too few of a sample to tell if it is a problem with the model. I spent a few bucks more and bought a CW9. Similar size, similar capacity, better finish and, I think, quality. Either would make a great carry gun. Mine was with me almost daily for the last month in FL>

    I have a 709 and love it . It fits really nice in a waist holster. I have shot 3 boxes thru it with no problems.

    Well I guess that I will find out, I went into a shop yesterday and Bought a 709 slim and it's litttle brother the TCP 380 I'll try them out sometime next week. Both have a very nice feel to them, also found 500 rounds of 380 at Wal-mart.... (380 ammo is like finding Hens Teeth, that was a real find )

    Sky Buster, you beat me to it. resale is poor as hell. If you want to buy a Taurus buy a used one and let others lose money.
