First, props to Bud's for a very competitive price and fast and excellent service. Took the gun to the range with Sellier and Bellot 92 grain FMJ for break-in, and Hornady Critical Defense for practice with the actual ammo I would be carrying. The Taurus worked perfectly from round 1, no jams, or failures to do anything for 150 rounds. I even mixed the S&B and Hornady loads in the same magazine - no problems. Accuracy was fine with many holes touching (at 5 and 7 yards) despite the very low profile sights that are almost invisible when focused on a small black target. A few drops of white-out should solve that nicely. It's no secret that Taurus has problems with the Millenium class pistols, and a mixed reputation for initial quality control and customer service in general, but this pistol is a winner. It is much more controllable than a Keltec P3AT or a Ruger LCP, equally accurate or better, the bolt stays open on the last round, there's a bolt hold open tab for cleaning and inspecting (a feature several competitors lack), and most important in a carry gun, it was utterly reliable with the FMJ and hollow point ammunition I tried. Conceals easily in a pocket - no reason to ever leave home without it. And last but not least, it is a very handsome pistol. .

Great service from Bud`s I had no idea what to expect out of a TCP 738 and was pleased with both the accuracy and the trigger is great for DAO trigger, plus it doesn`t bite me like my W------- .380 MR Bond must have had tough hands. I seriously doubt you can find a better micro .380.

I was unsure about this gun. I have owned other Taurus pistols before and they were just ok. This gun fits that bill for the most part. Great pocket concealment. The recoil is pretty snappy but manageable for the most part, the sights definitely need to be painted but seem to be accurate. I can only run about 100 rounds through it before my hands are shot though. The only downsides are the trigger: the trigger has a very long pull to break but it is smooth. If you try and stage this trigger you will inevitably shoot like crap. But if you do one consistent pull its a nice shooter. The only other real downside I have is the extraction pattern. IT'S ALL OVER THE PLACE. Brass fly in every direction without much rhyme or reason, including back over my head every once in a while. I have put around 3 or 400 rounds through mine and just now cleaned it. I might have had one FTE in that whole time. Don't expect to shoot distance with this gun but it definitely functions and conceals well. The gun has functioned flawlessly and I wouldn't have much of a problem throwing it on my person and carrying it.

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!
