Taurus PT740 Slim

With the right ammunition, the potent PT 740 is most likely a gun that will be carried a lot but shot little unless you are shooting masochist.

I need to make a confession. After several blissful, totally reliable months of sharing my life with Taurus' successful PT 709 Slim pistol in 9mm, I have begun to see its more buxom cousin, the still svelte PT 740 in .40 S&W. This reluctant decision has involved sacrifices--such as the loss of one to two rounds depending on the magazine employed--but admirably the bigger-bored beauty kept her weight the same as the 9mm at only 19 ounces.

Nevertheless, looking ahead to winter in my part of the world, which means multiple layers of clothing that can give some hollowpoint rounds fits, I'm comforted by the larger, heavier bullets the 740 can deliver.
