We liked the adjustable rear sight of the Taurus Slim. With 9mm loads running from 88 to 147 grains, this feature will prove useful in regulating point of aim to point of impact.
This ribbed treatment of the Taurus grip received high marks. Fired offhand, the Taurus Slim proved to be a comfortable handgun. Shooting these short-grip handguns requires a "gorilla grip" to control them.
Simple but well designed, the Taurus Slim has Glock-like features, including the takedown button and a safety lever in the trigger shoe.
