    Taurus PT 738 TCP .380 ACP

    I just picked me up a Taurus PT 738 TCP today and already took it out to the range. This gun is better than my ruger lcp hands down....Feels better in my hand and shoots so much better. My wife wants to take it.. Looks like i'm getting another.

    Mine has performed flawless. I was very surprised how good a shooter it is.

    I replaced my Sig P230 with a two tone TCP. I've got 300 rounds through mine and I'm comfortable saying it is the best most accurate .380 I have shot. I will post some range pics tonight. This gun is a shooter!!!

    I don't miss my Sig one bit!

    I fondled one about a month and a half ago and liked the way it felt. Shop here wanted $300 + tax, is that good or bad? It was the stainless steel model.

    Just picked up the last one in stock at a local Academy Sporting Goods store here in Houston. $280 plus some ammo. They actually had some FMJ and JHP in stock. Can't wait to get it to the range and break it in. 1st purchase since getting my CHL. Nice to not have to wait for the NICS check.

    $300 isn't bad. I bought mine two months ago approx. I got it for $280 at a gun show. At the gun show last weekend, everyone was trying to get $330 -$350 for them.

    I am looking at getting either a TCP or an LCP this weekend. I can't make up my mind! I am concerned that they will have first-year QC issues with it. Any input?

    Family member bought one last week but I have not had a chance to shoot it yet.

    I don't like the way the mag has a part of the pistol grip incorporated into it.

    Spare mag carry is not as easy as with the P3AT or LCP.

    The new Taurus line-up is a whole new breed of Taurus firearms for the company. Quality, carryability, and shootability are outstanding!!!

    I like the way this little gun feels in my hand, but its just so ugly. I think its the chissel looking end of the barrel area. Wish they would have squared it off.

    The more I shoot mine the more I am amazed at the accuracy. The new Taurus lineup is just awesome.

    I have about 150 rounds through mine and have had no problems. I would highly recommend this gun to anyone looking for a inexpensive CCW in .380acp. I hope this helps. God Bless :)

    I have this and a 238 and both have been perfect. The kick of the 738 was less than i expected. Very nice gun.

    Went to range and fired TCP today and P3AT and was very well pleased with both.

    Both were 100% and to me shot about the same.

    Would carry either and trust either.
