Had to send it back after the first time firing , it would shoot 2 or 3 rounds all at once instead of one when the trigger was pulled. After waiting forever to get it repaired and back now the mag constantly gets jammed. Should have gotten the Glock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 709Believer First coneal carry pistol
This was my first CCW I bought. I have put nearly 600 rounds through it in a little under a year. It is the solid black version. The only problem I have with it is I am unable to find any magazines over 7 rounds. I have had no hiccups at all with the gun and once sighted in, I was able to shoot tight groups at 50-60 yards. I have used lighter rounds mostly trying to avoid the +p jamming problems. I seriously would reccomend this pistol to anyone. Its slim enough and small enough to conceal with no problem and has been problem free. I am a pt709 fan now!

I bought this pistol the end of October 2012.. It shot way left out of the box. It took about 30 minutes and 50 rounds to get sights accurate.
I have 230 rounds through it. I have shot up to 147 gr HP and +P FMJ through it with few problems. Taurus strongly recommends not using +P+.
I have had no issues after break in period. Break in is important with is gun. Also keep it clean.
I added the Crimson Trace Grip Laser. It was fairly easy to sight. Overall, I am pleased and can fully trust this gun working every time for me.

I bought this gun for conceal carry. Got the black version. Have run 250 rds through it with no problems. Very accurate and sight adjustments are easy. Trigger pull is long and pretty stiff, howerer I am now accustomed to it, and poses no problem. Had a little trouble breaking it down to clean until I learned the secret. No problem now. The secret is to pull down evenly on both tabs at the same time, then release the slide and pull the trigger twice. If you read the manuel you will understand. Good gun, recommend it to anyone going concealed carry looking for an inexpensive but reliable weapon.
