Range report: Taurus 709 Slim

Have been looking for a "summer" carry 9mm and decided to give Taurus's 709 Slim 9mm a try as my first SA. My thoughts are to give it a good work-out over the summer @ the range- if deemed trustworthy it will be passed on to the wife as her CC.
After a good cleaning we went to the range today for it's maiden voyage.
Results:
-shot a little low- about 3 turns on the rear sight brought it around.
- 3" groups at 21 feet (me, not the gun)
-very long trigger pull, short reset though
-100 Winchester 115gr FMJ's rounds fired with zero FTF or FTE

Verdict:
Fun little gun to shoot. Accurate. Very comfortable to carry (IWB) & easy to conceal... compared to my daily carry (Ruger SP101 .357mag).
Definately a keeper so far... the wife may have to go and get her own.

Very cool! Thanks for the review, I've had my eye on those since they came out.

They are selling well, got mine at Academy for $389. Saw prices range from $379 to just over $400 at a recent gun show.
