Taurus 709 slim

Wife has this gun loves it for concealment, likes how it feels in her hands. But she shoots consistantly low and to the left with it. It has a very long trigger pull, first few rounds she thought it was broke because it didn't go bang when she pulled the trigger. She thinks that is throwing her off. Is there anyway to shorten up the length of the trigger pull? She is much more consistant with my Glock. I personally think she is anticipating recoil too much because it has a little more bark then the Glock because it is smaller and thinner.

The sights on the 709's are terriable! She just needs to shoot it alot to get used to the trigger, there great little guns when you figure them out! My best bud has one and when he first got it we had a terriable time getting it figured out! He is looking for new sites for it........If he finds any I'll let ya know.

Thanks

Think she will figure it, going to try and get her to bench fire it more. She won't give up till she gets it down. ( darn more time at the range) Yes let me know if you bud finds sights, not alot of aftermarket stuff yet for the gun. An extended mag was suppose to be out in Jan., still not released.
