Fantastic Gun I bought one of the earliest models of this gun, when it first came out, which is normally not a good idea with any new model gun. That said, mine has performed absolutely flawlessly. I would trust this gun with my family's life. I have put about 400 rounds through it, and have not had one single failure or malfunction of any kind. It is a KEEPER! When it was very new I had some problems getting the slide to come off to clean it (it would catch), so I called Taurus, and they sent FedEx to my house the next day, fixed it and had it back to me in under 2 weeks. Customer Service was phenomenal. Great Gun, Great Warranty, Great service. I would highly recommend! September 4, 2012
PT 709 Slim I've had this pistol for more than a year and put 500+ rounds through it. After an initial sight adjustment, it shoots great. Added the Pearce grip extensions on the magazines and it fits my hands just fine. Highly recommend it. August 20, 2012
Great as Glock Wow, for the best priced gun available the pt709 slim is great to carry and dead accurate when sights are set. I have large hands but this small gun has a very secure feel. Great safety features (right hand friendly). Fired smoothly round after round. I love it! July 14, 2012
Great Potential As with MANY internet reviews this gun fired low right out of the box. Taurus was nice enough to mail out a new smaller front sight.Have not yet had the chane to sight it in though due to issue #2. Issue 2 was the inability to put more than 4 or 5 rounds in the clip without it jamming. Taurus is again working the issue at no cost (issue with bad barrels). I have not got the gun back yet but expect to renew my review once I get it back and can use it normally. Stay tuned for a follow up review.... I REALLY want this gun to work out and become my concealled carry gun of choice. July 7, 2012

Thinking about learning to shoot. I don't want anything to heavy or with a lot of kickback. Thanks.

A: 
I would say yes. My 12 year old twin daughters shoot my 709 just fine. It was the first pistol either of them ever shot and they managed it without any problem at all. If you are looking at a compact 9mm this is probably your best option, as a lot of the other offerings out there are a bit lighter, and thus their recoils will be stronger than this gun.

A: 
Yes; you could go with a smaller caliber which would have less kick but also less power. This thing really doesn't kick much at all. It's absorbed in the cycle. I would suggest to practice with regular ammo but purchase some home defense stuff for when you carry. No need to buy any larger caliber. You won't need to use the whole magazine if confronted.

A: 
I bought the Bersa Thunder .380 for my wife and she loves it. But a 9mm is really not a bad gun for woman to learn with. My wife will not shoot anything but her .380 now.

A: 
Yes, but ducks are migratory birds and there are probably regs. against using anything but shotguns to take them. Plus a 9mm would not leave you much to eat.
