My First gun purchase

After numerous Google searches, lots of reviews, interaction on this forum. I finally made my first handgun purchase.
Taurus PT709 slim

Hope to have a range report tomorrow.



Thanks to everyone for the advice


Edit: gotta figure out how to post pics

Edit #2 guess I can post pics from phone?

wow that is a little thing. Will you be using it for CCW carry? That's a good gun for CCW.

You will love the P95. It is a great deal for $300-330. Be sure to clean it and lube it before going to the range.

Been shooting my dad's P95 and really like it.
Also looking at a sig 250 but the wife is set on the Ruger, she's a new shooter and is more comfortable with the thumb safety. As long as she's comfortable she'll shoot more.

When we first met she didn't like the idea of my shotguns in the house, now she wants her own gun. What a difference 10 yrs makes

I'll get my Sig next time

looks like no range time today.
I have a range out my backdoor, but with 30mph wind in my face, I'll wait.

Congrats on your Slim! I just found and purchased one online for a great price. Looking forward to your range report and looking forward to making my own.
