    God knows I dont NEED any more handguns.
    Neverless, in 2 weeks either the PT709 SLIM 9mm -OR-
    the PT745 is going to find it's way into my vault.
    .
    Now, I have shot a close freinds PT709 that is his EDC gun.
    I LOVED it. Even more so, truth be told, than my DB9 or the CW9.
    Here lately I have been favoring the CW9 more and more.
    .
    So, haing that been said, I am calling upon anyone out there that
    OWNS a PT709 or a PT745. Want your opinion on it, would you buy
    it again? If not why? I have 2 sub compact 9mm's already. The rhing is,
    after a while I get bored and want something new to break in and play with.
    Am almost 100% certain the CW9 will stay on my side.
    HOWEVER, IF the PT745 is reliable and carrys good and is concealable,
    then having 10 rounds of 45ACP JHP's on tap sure sounds like a
    nice idea! LOL

    I owned a PT 745 for a few years and sold it. It was reliable and reasonably accurate. Recoil was very manageable for it's size. It was 6+1 - not 10rds. Taurus triggers take a while to get used to as they have a long pull initially and can be "creepy". I paid $349 for mine as I recall at Bass Pro Shop. The Millennium Pros like a bit of grease on the bottom of the slide. I still have another one in .40 S&W which is 10rds. I have no experience with the PT 709 Slims.
