Angry Hippo from
Poor quality control - Decent triggerI have mixed feelings about the TCP. On one hand it fits nice in the hand and conceals very easily. Reliability has been sketchy, however. Mine had issues out of the box. The feed ramp and a few other spots on the barrel were machined poorly. The feed ramp in particular had a divot on it that would scratch a deep cut into the rim of any cartridge fed into it. The weapon would routinely have rounds jam on the feed ramp (both FMJ and HP).
I took some fine grit sand paper and polished it for quite some time. After the polishing I chambered a round through it several hundred times (no firing). After that I took it back to the range and it ran flawlessly for about 150 or 200 rounds. I cleaned it and then took it to the range where it ran another 100 rounds or so without issue. Since then I've routinely carried and practiced with it and it has rarely malfunctioned while clean.
That is the bad. The good is that the trigger pull is nice and smooth, possibly the best of any pocket .380 on the market. It is quite long but doesn't feel too heavy. Recoil is snappy but very manageable and not at all painful. Easier to control than a compact 9mm like a Walther P99C or Glock G26 in my opinion.
I might upgrade to an LCPII one of these days. I've not yet shot one, but the trigger pull seems decent and the size is comparable to the TCP. Reliability reports vary but tend to be more favorable on LCPII on average. TCP has a very attractive price point, however.

Dissapointed with this pistolI purchased this pistol as a summer pocket pistol. Price was an object in my decision which I now regret. The pistol is small and light which are positive features of the weapon but when I first test fired the pistol I got off only one round as the firing pin/striker would not hold a full cocked position to fire the next round. I returned the pistol to the factory and upon return it fires reliably. Accuracy is very good at 10 yards but you have to do your part, the sights are small as is the grip. This along with a long stiff trigger pull makes it a pistol you need to practice with a lot to be proficient enough to depend on it for self defense. In doing my own target practice with the pistol in less than 50 rounds the take down pin slid most of the way out. I still have the pistol as it has little trade in value but you should spend the money and buy one of the Rugers.

An OK range firearm.I bought a Millenium Pro 9mm over 10 years ago. I've been so impressed I decided to buy this mouse pistol for concealed carry in summer clothing. My first time at the range I experienced FTF. I cleaned it, took it out again, and still; FTF. I'm on the phone right now with Taurus to see about getting it fixed. I'm at the point, though, that I can't rely on this for concealed carry. Such a shame...

Had for years, no failures...Bought this gun a little over three years ago. Added a laser and bought a couple holsters and carry it all the time. It has a little over a thousand rounds through it (not a range gun so it gets 100 rounds at the range every few months or so) and I've never had a single failure with any ammo. I even leave all the pocket lint and stuff in it (collected from months of pocket carrying) when I shoot it and that's never caused a failure. I have nothing bad to say about this gun.

Has issuesI have owned this pistol for around 3 years or so and out of the box it was awful. I had constant fail to feeds no matter what ammo I put through it. Sent it back to the factory and had it back within a week with an extra magazine. Was pretty impressed with the service. Back to the range ran 60 rounds perfect, then started getting FTE. Pretty soon it wouldn't even cycle. Back to the factory had it back within 2 weeks or so with another spare mag. Pretty sweet as I now had 4 magazines. I can't remember exactly what was wrong now except there were a couple of broken pieces.That was around 3 years ago and I still have it. I guess I have 700 rounds through it with only an occasional hiccup.I do carry this gun in the summer months and feel confident in it. I only shoot quality ammo and I keep it clean and lubed. I am impressed with the customer service and I do believe this is a good little gun. I would recommend it.

Thumbs DownI like the small size but I have fired this gun less than 50 times and now it is jamming every single shot. It is very frustrating when the slide jams with such frequency that it is undependable. I really am disappointed what do you expect for such a cheap price. DO yourself a favor and spend a little more and purchase something that "if needed" you can rely upon. I would hate to think that I pulled a gun to defend myself or family and it didn't fire. I personally thought it was a faulty magazine but I have tried three separate magazines and the same result. JAM JAM JAM. I DO NOT recommend buying this gun for personal protection!!!!!!!
