I traded it for a NAA 22mag. Yes, I love the little gun. Very accurate, easy to carry, reliable and fun to shoot.
Taurus TCP 380. Talk about a nasty little gun! I couldn't get it to go through one whole mag. It would fail to fire, fail to eject, -- then when it did eject - it ejected casings right back into your face! Not only that, it kicked something awful - so bad that two women that were with me both refused to try to shoot it anymore after a shot or two.
I replaced it quickly with a Ruger LCP. What a difference! The LCP has never failed! It is accurate - and it's kick is enough less that the ladies will shoot it. One of the women even bought one for herself! It's for self defense - not a fun-at-the-range gun.
Not saying the LCP doesn't have a kick - it is a light gun - but it is nothing like the Taurus was - seems like the line of fire must sit too high above the grip in that TCP. But heck - it wouldn't shoot that much anyway, without a jam!
I sold it fast!
