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.
