|I purchased my PT740 a couple of weeks ago (August 2012), and it only took a few days to arrive at my FFL dealer. They called me to pick up, which I hurredly did...very anxious. The pistol was in its case, with an extra magazine. I had to clean the factory protective cosmoline, which didn't take very long. Later that same day, I went to my local indoor pistol range, and ran 2 boxes of ammo through the pistol. No problems with the performance of the pistol, other than the factory sights were just a bit off; low and to the right, but after a little "Kentucky Windage" adjustment, it was shooting a nice grouping. I haven't reset the adjustable rear sight yet, maybe at my next outing this weekend. I did note that the grip on the pistol is my only real complaint. Just didn't have the kind of feel I am used to. The pistol does have a bit of a kick, and rightly so, but this is expected. I have since ordered a "Grip Sleeve" to help with the recoil. Overall, I am very satisfied. The pistol is what I expected, and I am happy with it. I bought a nice leather IWB holster for it, and the gun rides nicely, with no noticeable weight. In MY opinion, this is money well spent. I wanted a "good caliber" pistol to carry concealed, and this gun fits my needs exactly.
Thanks to CTD for a price that most everyone can afford, which was way cheaper than the local gun shops. 'nuff said.
