No experience with that in particular, but I can say that I can see no reason why someone would want to conceal carry a yellow gun.

The operative word is 'Conceal'. I can think of a few colors better suited for hiding.


Thing looks like a duck.
Only comment I could think of, sorry.


Btw, drop by the introductions section and introduce yourself.

Yes I have one. My buddy and I picked up a pair at a gun show about six months ago. I love it. After the break in period I really haven't had any issues with it. I put a slide on grip for extra cushion and it works great. They're nice if you find them for the right price. I'm a little concerned about the .380 round, I'd prefer a 9mm, but still its a nice little gun.

Is that cheaper than a diamondback 380/9?

If remaining unnoticed is important black or silver screams gun. Yellow orange red pink screams cellphone/pda.

Just bought a TCP 738FS model a weeek and a half ago. That is there 199 dollar retail model. Paid 185 dollars new at our LGS. I have 200 rounds of magtec 95gr fmj through it now and so far no issues. I found it is easier for me to shot one hande rather than try to wrap 2 paws around it. Shoots to point of aim. Nice smooth fuild trigger pull and measrues at 5lb 4oz. pull weight now. I bought this madel as it is only used for limited CC use. Now those that know about KT's finish I careid for 2 1/2 year doing carpentry work in a pocket. NO rust. I wet the slide in breakfree clp and this time put it under a heat lamp over night. Springs were you. It just soaked up most of the oil. That is what I think kept of KT from rusting. I did the same with this tcp. For me 185 dollars is hard to pass on. 200 more rounds to go for me but very pleased with the Taurus . Way nicer in every way than the 380's from KT or Ruger to me. The SS and Black SS slide models sellfor 259 around here. That yellow is knida neet.
