Now the popular SLIM series comes in .40 cal. for even more carry options. This dynamic semi-auto gives nothing away under the lightest T-shirts or polos with its remarkably lean, lightweight design—but it still steps up with big firepower, remarkable features and top-end performance. Leave it to Taurus to make the most heralded concealed carry semi-autos in company history even better.
I have had the 740 slim for a year now, have around 300 rnds through it and carry it a lot. Taurus seems to have their act together and the gun has had no FTF and is more then accurate enough for self defense and everyday carry. For being a small .40, the recoil isn't bad at all. My wife, who is a smaller woman, shoots it without any complaints, where she doesn't like the recoil from my Glock 23. I wear bib overalls most the time, so a holster doesn't work for me, but the 740 slides right into a pocket without any trouble. I bought this SS slide version locally on sale for $239 + tax, a unbeatable deal. Not surprising these are hard to find in stock anywhere most the time.
