I just picked up this Taurus 740 SLIM .40, ... It is the first striker-fire I have owned or shot, & I hate it with a passion! I think part of it has to do with how it works in conjunction with the trigger, & how I am so very used to my DA/SA carry, & its action. The God-awful amount of force needed to break the wall on this Taurus is insane, & there is obviously nothing visual to offer the smallest of hints as to how much pressure is built up on the internal spring ... eh, those in the know, know what I mean. Fits nice in my hand & all, pretty accurate ... practicality stole it for the price ... seller needed the money bad, & the FFL I deal with now down here called me first ... so, yeah, I bought it without firing it first, but I can easily near double my money on it after a quick cleaning, & with the couple extras it came with. Anyone here carry or prefer strikers? Anyone actually fired one of these, maybe even a Taurus like this? Any experiences would be interesting as I know I am going to get rid of this one, but I do not know if it is the striker deal I do not like, or maybe it is how Taurus "does" it that is sh!tty in my opinion ... my admittedly first striker-fire opinion.
