Taurus TCP pistol
#1
Here is my initial range report.

Took it out tonight and fired several mags through this pistol.
Fired 50 rnds through this gun. As this is the only .380 pocket pistol I have shot so I do not know how this compares to the other brands.

The gun despite it's micro size is comfortable to grip and hold. The trigger pull is long but crisp.

This pistol is very snappy compared to my .40 and my friends 9. Not unbearable just more then I had expected. It is easy to keep a proper grip as you fire and aside from the recoil is comfortable to shoot.

Accuracy wise I was hitting low and to the left but I am going to attribute that to myself and not the gun itself. I was firing at approximately 15 yards and was holding about a 4in main group with one or two flyers.

Reliability wise I experienced no FTF or FTE neither did my buddy when he shot it. The gun performed as expected and gave me no other problems with shooting it.

Tearing the pistol down is as simple as locking the slide back and removing the take down pin with a flathead screwdriver or similar tool. After that it is just like any other semi auto. Reassembly is the same but in reverse, the pin takes a little bit difficult to reinsert.

Overall I am pleased with this pistol up to this point. I will report back with any issues that may show up after getting more time shooting it down range. Feel free to ask any questions.

I bought one and ended up selling my Keltec, I have also fired the LCP and I liked the Taurus more.

How was the keltec? I heard some people there saying good things about the p3at's. I was Thinking about the LCPs but the extra 100 bucks kinda turned me off.

I will say that the sights on this suck. Definitely my biggest complaint with this gun. Really hard to pick up the front post in the rear sight.
Besides the laser is there any other options for after market sights such as having the slide milled to accept LCP sights or some other aftermarket sights?

No FTF or FTE,thats a winner in my book sounds reliable and the cost was most likely very reasonable with lifetime warranty. Congrats

Best bet is to practice point shooting at 7 yards. If you can hit an IDPA sized target at that range consistently then you don't need sights at 3-10 feet(self defense range).
We love our TCP BTW. We also shopped it against the LCP, P3AT, Hellcat, and Guardian. TCP has the best of everything except the prettiness of the NAA.
I say we because the wife steals it all the time. We are gonna need another one. I traded my PT709 for it(another flawless gun) because it is easier to pocket carry at work.

Up to 100 rounds through not FTE or FTF. Can be a little finicky with feeding when you rack the slide but not enough to concern me.
Other wise ammo needs to come down so I can shoot it more and give it a good workout.

Yes i have definitely learned that this is a point n shoot. at about 15 yards I get about a small plate sized spread on the target. No aiming and one handed. I can honestly say that I am very pleased with this pistol.
