Do you know what I hate? Actually, a good 90 percent of your answers would probably be pretty accurate, but that is beside the point. I hate concealed carry firearms that are obviously lacking in the design department. I am not talking about fancy bells and whistles. I am talking about a streamlined design with a sleek profile that truly lends itself to concealed carry – not those firearms that are decidedly small enough to be considered concealed carry pistols but whose design suggests otherwise.

Apparently Taurus International Manufacturing and I have something in common – they seem to hate those clunky pistols that are marketed as concealed carry pistols but would be more than a bother if carried for any length of time. Their solution? The Taurus "Slim" line of pistols. Each pistol in the line is designed with a sleek, no-snag profile and a width of less than a single inch to ensure maximum comfort and concealability. At the head of the line is the Taurus 709 Slim – now available from Keepshooting.com.

Taking a few cues from GLOCK, this Taurus 709 Slim is a striker-fired, semi-automatic pistol with a single-action-only trigger mechanism that utilizes a short-recoil operation. It is chambered for the 9x19mm Parabellum (9mm) cartridge and boasts a "7+1" capacity. As noted, the pistol has been meticulously designed to provide for comfortable concealed carry. Additionally, each pistol comes with a single 7-round magazine.

You are not likely to find a more suitable concealed carry pistol for a better price. Pick up the Taurus 709 Slim today for just $294.40.

Taurus International Manufacturing, Inc. has an interesting history. It began in 1939, when a small tool and die company was founded in Porto Alegre, Brazil. The company began by producing small tools designed for use in manufacturing processes. In the years that followed, the company branched out to include divisions focused on metals manufacturing, plastics, body armor and, most importantly, firearms. That company is Forjas Taurus, what we commonly refer to as Taurus International. Since its inception, Taurus has had ties to both Smith & Wesson and Beretta, which allowed the company access to information related to the design, manufacture and tooling of some of the world's most popular pistols – including Beretta's 92 series. Since then the company has learned a thing or two and is now one of the largest manufacturers of small arms in the world.

Today, Taurus International offers a wide range of products from revolvers to both steel- and polymer-framed pistols. The company seeks to bolster their lineup with the new Taurus 709 Slim, a pistol that was designed with a sleek, no-snag profile for comfortable concealed carry, which is a big consideration for concealed carry pistols. Other big considerations include reliability, ease-of-use and safety.

When it comes to safety, the Taurus 709 Slim really shines. In addition to its firing pin block, the 709 Slim features a loaded chamber indicator, a passive trigger safety, a manual safety and the famous Taurus integral security system – all big check marks for the pistol.

The Taurus 709 Slim features a 3-inch barrel and an overall length of 6 inches. As noted, it has a width of less than one inch and weighs in at just 19 ounces – only slightly more than a pound. You will not even notice its presence, which is exactly what Taurus wants. Its compact polymer frame is joined by a stainless steel slide with a blued finished and low-profile sights that include a fixed front sight and an adjustable rear sight. Other features include a checkered polymer grip and an integral security system. As noted, each pistol includes one 7-round magazines, which provides the pistol with a "7+1" capacity.

Best of all, the Taurus 709 Slim comes with the Taurus Unlimited Lifetime Repair Policy. Taurus International has pledged to repair, free of charge, any firearm manufactured or imported by the company. For details, visit the official website of Taurus International.

Concealment? Safety? Lifetime repair policy? When I said you are not likely to find a more suitable concealed carry pistol for a better price, I was serious. Consider the Taurus 709 Slim for any of the following:

- Concealed carry and personal protection
