Just got done shooting mine and I'm beyond disappointed. It cycles fine and feels good but it's the most inaccurate gun I've ever shot. I have zero faith in it for CC. I thought something might have been wrong with me so I went to the rental counter and got a Ruger LC9 and a Glock 27. I was able to do 3" groups with both of those at 7rds but the best I could do all day was 12" at the same distance with the 709. Bye bye, selling it and moving on. Been shooting for 30yrs, never felt this way about a gun. Too bad too because this has spoiled any chance of me trying another Taurus product.
