Taurus TCP 738 Review
Purchased this handgun (in pink) for my daughter as a home defense weapon. It replaced a S&W 422 that was stolen during a break-in. Also purchased a Crimson Trace LaserGuard for it. When sighting in the laser, I found the trigger pull to be quite long and gritty (not smooth). Might just be new gun stiffness. Will let you know after I have more rounds through it and cleaned it. I also found the grip to be quite short and while re-positioning my hand for the next shot, I experienced a "slide bite". A magazine extension (Taurus # 26120011 if you can find one) would go a long way on this very small but very accurate gun. Very cute (in pink) and very deadly with the laser and .380 hollow points.

guns are dangerous
This a pocket pistol - last line of defense to save your life. If you need a safety or a gun that does not function without a magazine you probably shouldn't own one. Buy a single shot 12 guage shotgun and don't buy any shells for it....Very safe weapon.

Great Little Gun!!!
I purchased this a week ago and have just got around to firing it, I love it already! It is quite accurate for being so small and I had no FTE or FTF problems with the winchester white box ammo which my 24/7 OSS has problems with. After a few rounds I was able to get a grouping of 3" at 15 feet. There were a few outside as I am still getting used to the trigger. I was able to stay on target at both 20 and 30ft but were all over the place. Overall, I think this makes a great concealed carry gun. Its not designed for long distance shooting but will do great in close quarters. the only complaint I really have about it is the take down. The take down pin requires a screwdriver or other flat object to take out which can led to scratches around it. Overall, Buy it!!!

Good back up
This is a very good back up to carry in your pocket. I have put 500 rounds through this little gem and have had no problems. My only gripe is they never released the 8 round extended mag. With the 8 round mag I would probably use this as my primary carry with a hip holster. Maybe Pro Mag will make the 8 round mag, one can only hope. Till then, I will just keep packing my 24/7 G2 as my primary and keep the little gem in my right front pocket.... Don't hesitate to buy this, you wont be dissapointed...
