    Great pick up!!!! Just ignore the Taurus bashing.

    Yeah I know that a lot of people don't like them I don't really care for them a lot but I really liked this gun when I was looking at it the other day. I own a taurus in a .357 and love it so I thought I would try another one.

    Thumbs up

    We're over-due for some good news on Taurus, especially the PT738. Where there's always a hiccup or two on a new release, I find it hard to believe that they are mass-shipping firearms that don't work. Keep us posted!

    My friend has one of those and loves it, thats a good price too.

    As far as 'hick-ups', it's definately not just Taurus. Seems like every major gun maker is racing to release new handguns for the self defense/concealed carry market before they have properly tested and wrung all the gremlins out of them. Your basically paying THEM to be a beta tester...

    I've eyeballed the 738 in the gun store a number of times and I like it. I've got a SS PT709 9mm with 1,100 flawless rounds through it and the 738 isn't so much smaller that I've felt inclined to buy one. With similar size, I'll carry the 9mm version....plus, I bought it before the 738 came out. Let us know how it goes as your range count grows.

    I seriously hope you have a good experience with it. Mine was a nightmare! 3 trips back to Miami and got worse each time. If you have any problems and deal with CSR #243, demand a new rep!!
    I traded mine in on a KAHR CW40 after the last trip.
