Worst part of the transaction was having to wait 5 days for my debit transaction to clear. When I want something I want it now. Once my money cleared after 5 business days it took 2 days to get to my FFL.

The TCP is pretty small and light, exactly what I was looking for. Internet forums tend to bash this gun and most don't seem to own one. I had a Taurus Millenium in the past and it worked flawlessly. For $199 I was willing to give it a shot.

I put about 125 rounds through it out of the box with not a single issue. The majority of ammo I used was PMC and also put Hydra Shocks through it. The HS has some kick.

It shot very accurately for what it is. Trigger reset is completely releasing the trigger.cThere is a click which I thought was the resettable about half way, but it was not a reset.

So far I am extremely happy.

I bought this with the idea of a backup carry option. To be honest I was very skeptical of Taurus but for with money being very tight a Walther PPK or Seecamp 380 were out of the question.
Nothing too special opening the box when I got it. The magazine wouldn't drop free and it almost took two hands to drop the slide release on initial inspection.
So off to the range to get the feel before it went into my pocket. It shot accurate and felt recoil was nothing next to other mouseguns I have shot. The trigger surprised me, its great! Smooth pull and crisp clean positive break. After about 100 rounds the magazine drops free and the slide release operates easily with my thumb.
Pick one up and be sure to break it in before judgement. Great little defensive weapon. As for Buds, great price and fast shipping. I will buy from you guys again!

Perfect pocket pistol, fits right into the pockets of my blue jeans without trouble. Excellent accuracy for short barrel. Haven't tried but 2 different types of ammo but so far haven't had FTF or FTE's. For the money you can't go wrong with pocket pistol. Buds was awesome with keeping you informed about the shipment and received in within 3 days from time of order. GREAT JOB

I have to begin by saying this was my first order with Buds for a firearm, and it was smooth, easy, fast shipping, and did I say easy??

Now , on the Taurus. Very nice. However, I did have to do a little filing and finish stoning on the slide, opposite the ejector. It wasnt machined quite enough and the rim of the cartridge would stick. Once I took it down just a hair and polished it up with a fine stone, it not only ejected, but ejected like a champ. I also polished the ramp and its has worked with the Defense hollow points and Remington fjm ball rounds I have fed through it. For the price, I cant complain at all.
