Nice pistol. It is accurate and the trigger pull is quite good for an inexpensive DAO. As is the case with these small pistols, it is quite snappy. I find the recoil starts to bother me significantly after a couple of boxes of ammo at the range. It is not a target or range gun anyways, so no real issue there. It had to be broken in though. I have had some issues. It had a lot of failures to feed and locking open before the last shot. An internet search provided the solution and a minor modification to the slide release had it humming. The next issue occurred after about 750 rounds, the extractor broke. I called Taurus and they are sending a new extractor. We will see how it holds up from here.

I\'m sorry to say this was not a good purchase. I chose this gun after watching multiple reviews on youtube stating positive results and excellent reliability. I took it to the range with 2 types of ammo (tula & Winchester) and couldn\'t make it through 1 magazine without multiple extraction & ejection issues (happened with both mags so I don\'t believe thats the issue). The gun fires each time a round is properly chambered, but the spent case gets left in the barrel & the following round would jam the slide. So I had to completely & properly lock the slide back, drop the mag, then clear the spent case from the barrel. I went through 100 rounds hoping this was just part of the break-in process, but that wasn\'t the case. It\'s off to Taurus. Hope it doesn\'t take the full 6 weeks. Serial # contained the letter \"D\". I do own & carry the Taurus PT111 G2 which has been completely reliable & I can reccomend. However, the 738 TCP, based off my experience, I can not.

Gun ran perfect for the first 50 rounds. But second time to the range the seer broke and the rails that hold the slide on came loose and it stopped firing. I shipped it back to Taurus and they replaced the Hammer the Seer and the Chassis. I took it to the range again and it would not run flawless like it did to began with. I had several FTE and Stove pipes with Winchester white box and Blazer Brass. I sold the gun. This was my third Taurus I have owned and the third that has had to be shipped back to Taurus (TCP, Poly Protector and Judge) I still own the judge and its the only one that I will keep. Taurus is an okay company however, their products are garbage. Stay away from this gun, well this manufacturer in general.

I bought this pistol just to try something different, we have never had a Taurus before - - never even held a Taurus before. About 200 rounds thru it so far using various types of ammo - - - including Serbian POS ammo - - WOW - - zero malfunctions of any type (shooting included lots of rapid clip dumps) . My wife's Glock 42 malfunctions a lot with the same ammo mix we used on this Taurus. The rough texture on back of the grip will leave marks in your hand but I have Talon grips on the way for that. This pistol may fall apart tomorrow but as of now it is 100%! Don't believe the reports of extremely difficult field strip & reassembly - - its very easy if you have any mechanical aptitude. My serial # has a "E" at the end of it which is supposedly the latest revisions

Finally had time to go to range with this little 380. Ran 50 cheap bullets through it w/o a hitch. Not much recoil. Very accurate at 10 yards. Great CC when wearing shorts, or need to carry light. I really like this little gun. Bud's shipping, etc great as always.

This is the perfect pocket gun. It's light, snag free design make it easy to carry while wearing even gym shorts. I've shot roughly 300 rounds through it and have had no failures of any kind. I would recommend the tcp and Buds Gun Shop to everyone.
