    My first Taurus

    Today I picked up a little Taurus TCP at Cabela's. I used to have a Ruger LCP and hated it. Sold it to get my first Kahr in fact. Well, it's an easy size to miss and I finally gave in after doing some research. The gun has mostly good reviews so I'm giving it a chance.

    Cleaned it up then ran 50 Winchester White Box through it followed by 8 Speer Gold dots without a hitch. Got home, wiped it down and loaded up with Gold Dots and through it in my Smartcarry where it disappeared.

    I already like it much better than the LCP, more fun to shoot and already less trouble. :-)

    I think it's a keeper.

    I own two Tauruses and they both "run like a top."

    You will be pleasantly surprised as to its accuracy. At first I wasnt sure with it's size. My hands are just alittle bigger than normal size and thought I would get rid of it. (I picked it for the girlfriend, now ex girlfriend). Well I picked up a mag finger extender, and took it to the range and was really surprised. I now carry it when my bigger guns isnt a choice. I carried it most of the day today and forgot I even had it in my waste band.

    I have a semi PT640 and it's a dream to shoot without any problems
    I would rather live my life as if there is a God,
    And die to find out there isn't, than live my life
    As if there isn't, and die to find out there is.
    God Bless

    Good to hear! I find it hits where I naturally point which wasn't expected.

    Taurus is making some fine little carry guns. And its not about caliber anymore its where you put the bullets. I love the little pistols there so dang easy to carry and at least you have one with you when needed. Enjoy that new piece looks good

    How are you going to carry? I carry my kel Tec in my front pocket holster. Hides great.
    The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.

    Pocket for now, I have a couple different pocket holsters. Smartcarry also works well with it.
