Default Taurus TCP 738

Just bought a Taurus TCP 738 to accompany my berretta nano 9mm and my Davis Industries D32 derringer . What do you taurus owners think about the taurus 738

After a rough start, and a trip back to the factory, it's my tee-shirt and shorts pocket companion. Reliable and very accurate too!

I've had my TCP for about a year. No problems to speak of after about 150 rounds, cleanings and oiling. I guess that was the "breaking in" that I've read about. I may not be as confident with the
.380 as with .40, 9mm or .38Sp. that I sometimes carry. As de4nra mentioned it is good to have in tee shirt & shorts weather. Shoot it a lot. See how it works out and enjoy carrying it!

I have a taurus tcp 738 with and it's a D series after the serial number does anyone have any info on the D series ? I've heard that the A and B models had a lot of problems. I haven't taken mine out yet so any info on the D series will be helpful

Mine has a C after the serial no. I don't really have any other info but I do know the earlier models had some issues, so far this one has worked just fine, I have put one box of Monarch fmj w/metal case and about 25 or 30 rds of Rem. UMC fmj w/brass case. I haven't tried and hollow points in yet.

I have a "B" model. First round out of the pipe and it broke! Sent it back on a Monday (Taurus paid the freight) and had it back by Thursday and nary another problem. Have put several hundred rounds, HP&FMJ, through it. Flat out love it now! And its a tack driver to boot, at least at 20'

I have a "D" model. Put 100 rounds through mine and not one failure.
Small enough to put in my pocket when I don't want to stuff my LC9 in my waistband. For a few hundered dollars its worth it.

Bought a 738 this past weekend, time constraints allowed only about 35 rds fmj to be fired. No problems, the trigger on my gun is excellent. The sights are pretty small, so I bought some bright almost fluorescent green fingernail polish and applied to the sights. Also purchased Sticky brand pocket holster - cut hay this weekend on tractor with gun in front pocket of jeans hardly noticeable at all, same at work. I do a lot of road bicycling-20 to 50 mile rides- this gun fits in back pocket of jersey in the supplied bulldog case perfectly, the case also can hold a Samsung Galaxy S3. I have a Taurus 709 slim in 9mm as well, these compliment each other pretty well.
