Taurus TCP 738




What do you think about this video?

ryotaryuu: @GunWebsites that makes no sense.

vulpixgrant: @ThinBlueLine1969 - If you take the time to practice with the pouch, I can draw the TCP faster from the Bulldog then I can from my pocket holster. The Bulldog in a fast motion. Move hand up, stick finger in hole ( NO not like that ) un do snaps with thumb at same motion, push up and the gun rotates upwards pushing lid out of way, put thumb around handle, pull up, drawn... Sounds like a lot going on, but I think it's better then a pocket draw.

stevo642007: @GunNut12680 Keltec used to give 2 mags when they first came out with the P11, then they got cheap, its always about profit. I was looking at some Kimber 1911's today, and all of them only come with one mag, and these are very high end guns. people bad mouth Taurus, but I think they have come a long way, and they have the best warranty in the business!!!

Jesse Sisolack: Nice pistol. I have been thinking about replacing my Kel-Tec P3AT with this pistol. I like the slide catch/release. The P3AT does not even lock back, not saying that is the end of the world or anything, but it is faster to reload with a slide catch.

rick ca: hey

JosephNowhere: The last shot hold open is why I would buy this over the LCP even though I love my Rugers.

jrx7s: In your table top reviews like this could you state the action on the gun ? I know very little about rugers. I'm guessing it's a DAO gun with no safety ?

ALAPINO: @MadBadVoodo Absolutely, Good Sir... I do not like this new format. Why do all the internet gremlins think all this change is good. :(

migkillertwo: The pouch might fit the same niche as, say, a belly band holster. Really slow draw, but great for concealment. Most people will think that's some kind of change purse, nobody's going to seriously suspect that you are packing heat.

stevo642007: @GunWebsites people bash Taurus, but all of their semi auto pistols come with 2 mags, and look at all the features on this little gun. locking stainless slide, loaded chamber indicator, built in lock. this gun is made in the USA, and it cost less then the LCP.. Taurus has come along way, their products just keep getting better. thanks for the review.

salembadass: There is a lil hole in the bottom of the pouch to push it up so You can grab it, that's how the pouch works

kam lau: They got 10 round mags at academy

IraqiSniper107: I hear what your saying and everything, my question is are you suppose to fire from what you call the first reset? Also does Taurus refer to that position as a "Reset? Let me know? Good Video Semper Fi

john Doe: @ThatDudeSirraj hey ive had more shooting time with that tcp now. and i really like that gun, the slide lock does not work, but i kinda think....so what?....the gun works all the time and thats all i care about. its a really cool little gun. and by the way i did not do anything wrong to the gun. but your right, i should not have been so quick to bad mouth the gun. its not a glock (had to say that) but its a great little pistol.

stevo642007: @GunNut12680 I have owned 2 of these guns, and both shot flawlessly, I ended up trading them for a Kahr 380, because the Kahr is made in Worcester Mass, and I was born, and raised there. don't be afraid to get one, even if you get a lemon, you just send it back to Taurus, and they will fix it. I liked the TCP very much!!!

GunWebsites: @keysmmzero really? how is that? a quality machine isn't made to be used?

Troy Feldbauer: @dizbuster30 I have the same gun also and it jams every time I shoot it. Both magazines fail to load the last round no matter how many I load into it.

Andrew Clark: I'd have to agree with that statement. I always hear people talking about how they have put a few hundred rounds through their gun. I'm like, I put about half of that through my gun each range trip. After, at the very least 600, rounds, I would consider a pistol reliable or not.

danny223009: @Generalpatton, you're a freakin douche bag! Just because you dont know how to field strip a gun and freaked yours up doesn't mean it's a bad gun OR the company has a bad rep. Get a clue picklehead.

GunWebsites: @ryotaryuu Go the range twice a month, shoot 50 rounds each time. 100 rounds per month 12 months equals 1200 rounds..eh? Do you expect a gun to last more than two years of not?

GunWebsites: @biguy525 Sorry I doubt it. but I'll try

Jay Rule: Nice gun but mine had a last round that wont' fire so I had to cycle that. Dont' know if it was the gun or the ammo.

jdhp45toy: @GunNut12680 no kiddin. i want a small but powerful ccw pistol, but there so many ups and downs and diif. 2 choose.

Ih8stupidhumans: Seems many people commenting on GunWebsites' suggestion to fire 2000+ rounds through one of these clearly have no idea what they are talking about. 200 is just as was stated nothing, it's a good start and will help get a feel for the weapon but it won't be broken in till 1000+ rounds have been put through it. There is nothing wrong with firing this much ammo to test, you need to get used to point shooting this type of pistol, mag changes/ releases, break-downs for cleaning.

quicklady: you put the gun in the pouch upside down and draw it my pushing the gun up from the bottom hole.

thehateak: place the gun upside down in the pouch with barrel facing to your rear, push up with one finger in finger hole on the bottom of the pouch and the gun POPS right into your hand VERY FAST to draw!

john Doe: @danny223009 whoa man, calm down with that. just think if i was in front of ya, thats how you should talk to people.

George Galan: is this a gun you can carry with one round in the chamber? I want to carry it with one in the chamber but´╗┐ am scared of accidental discharge.

titus922: I've this brand new and have shot 400 rounds with it. No problem with FMJ round but jammed up 5 times shooting 25 rounds of hollow point rounds. Anyway it's really a nice concealable pistol to carry around everyday for self defense.

noelsingletary: This gun is a piece of junk. I had to send mine back to Taurus for repairs three times. First problem was failure to fire. Firing pin and spring replaced. Next was failure to chamber a round. Even with ball ammo the round would jam on the feed ramp. Next failure was constant jamming of live and spent ammo. I sold the gun yesterday for 200 bucks and think I got a good deal. My advice to everyone is to stay away from this pistol. It's too unreliable and dangerous.

Daniel W: @martinman48 All you have to do is call Taurus customer service.They will send Fed Ex to pick up your pistol. You don't pay Fed Ex they do.Yeah a lot of issues with this pistol.I sent mine back about three times before they got it right.The need more quality control.Once all of the bugs are out ,it turns out it's a great little pocket gun. Good Luck Martin

biguy525: Are you going to do a shooting review on this gun? Thanks

Don Graves: I have one of these. Great little gun. I carry it in the pouch upside down. The holes on the bottom let you get a finger in there to push the gun up and it rolls right into your hand. With practice you can draw rather quickly. Nobody has any idea that you're carrying a .380 in the pouch. They think it's one of the latest and greatest cell phones on your hip.

zeke tin: @GunWebsites I do like the review though and the videos.

gboyd242: Good mini review. Any chance you guys could do a review of the Taurus 709? It looks like a good choice for something a little more beefy than a 380 but also reasonable to shoot unlike the kel-tec PF-9 in my opinion. I want to get one but Commifornia hasn't put it on our "safe" gun list yet. Hopefully soon.

ThatDudeSirraj: @generalpatton272 They have a lifetime warranty for a reason dude. If yours is jacked send it back. But if they check it and see you did somethin wrong, you really cant bash them. I've broke mine down numerous times without issues. Taurus is like Kia... They aint what they used to be. Definately rebuilt thier rep and increased quality standards.

stevo642007: At least Taurus give you 2 magazines, unlike the cheap, stingy other companies like Keltec P380, and Ruger LCP , they only give you one mag. even the $600 sig 238 only gives one mag...........that's just wrong!!!! thank you for listening to my rant!!!!

nostrangertodirtroad: I have this gun. Only gave $267 for it brand new. After 200 rounds and no problems I am impressed. I think poeple who bash Taurus have never actually owned any.

Scott Thornton: @GunWebsites Sad fact is that most people do not shoot these pocket .380's that much. If it will shoot 200 of a selected self defense round without fail it is good to go in my book as well. After that most will just get shot enough to rotate stocked ammo.

Sgttdc: I've owned my TCP since April and just received my CCP. I was wondering if anyone carried the extended magazine (8 rounds) anywhere?

danwhaneman1: the pouch is a concealed carry pouch that if you look in the instructions it shows you how to quick draw the gun onehanded.

Jordan Tiemann: This gun is made for concealed carry not realy as a range gun as you can see by the compact, light-weight design. Yes you should be able to take it to the range and get a feal for it ,but if you want a gun that you can put 2000+ rounds through without some small problems than this gun is in my opinion is not it.

errl Goodman: also at the bottom of the pouch there is finger holes to push the gun out from the bottom......you want it in there upside down...

zeke tin: @GunWebsites Kind of a ridiculous statement.

martinman48: this gun is junk!!!! only 50 rounds through mine 65% of the time it jammed the other time the slide dont stay open whitch truely is no big deal but the one mag had to be manually pulled out i got one good mag really and one crapty gun and mag lifetime warrenty you'll need and p.s it costs 25$ to ship to get fixed EACH TIME there well be more then one spend the money Karh pm9 or a glock 26 i own a sig i love it. A gun snob im not even the sig 238 has serious jam issues. And i know glocks are ugly

fernando2980: I bought this gun and it keep jamming. I have used WWB and some good stuff too. Its on its way back to taurus for the 3rd time. Hopefully third time its a charm, but I would not use it for a CCW anymore, once I receive it back I am trading it for a LCP.

MadBadVoodo: Good looking little gun! Big Green Thumbs Us My Friend!!

Dan Lenson: As chinthenatureboy said, the pouch is supposed to look like a pda holder. It's made by Bulldog, which seems to be an up & coming brand; it's made of cordura & has a beltclip which can be removed to allow use of a more secure beltloop connection. The holes in the bottom of the pouch are used to fingerpush an upside-down pistol into proper drawing position (stored strongside, barrel facing rearward). The magnetic clips permit easy access & allow for a more reliable quickdraw.

MrCharlietuner: @nostrangertodirtroad The holes in the bottom of the pouch allows you to put a finger in to push the gun up for a easy grab.

slt87: I never thought I would have wanted to own a Taurus, but with this and now they are made in the good ol' US, I think ima buy one

EMT: Thanks! They sometimes skip corners and take the easy way. If they ever did that, I suggest you consult with a paralegal or lawyer. This way they won't be able to cheat you.
