    I just shot my new Taurus 380 concealed carry at the range today. It felt good , little recoil, but at more than 15 feet it was not effective. Anyone experience Similar experience. Thanks.

    I have the Taurus TCP380 and if I have to pull it and use it I doubt the BG will be more than 15 feet away. If they are then you have time to react in a different manner. The reason for having it at the ready is if you have no other options.

    I also have one, and agree that it's close-in only, and then point and shoot. Not much good to even try the sights. It's still a good BUG. From time to time, I'm caught with nothing else but it, especially in the hot summer.

    I had a pt24/7 9mm.couldn't hit crap with it. I had a pt111 millenium, couldn't hit crap with it! :mad:

    I don't own a taurus anymore, but I agree it fulfills the purpose it was designed for as long as it goes bang.

    Mouse guns are NOT range guns.

    I don't know my cousin's NAA Minimag is pretty darn accurate even at 25 yards. If you really concentrate and take your time you can get 5 to 6 mile groups at 25 yards :D

    I have the Taurus PT709 slim basicly the big brother to there 380 range is not that good but as for conceiling it does that pretty well. The farthest I've got is about 20-25 ft, there definatly not compatition guns.

    My Kel-Tec P3AT does fairly well at 7 yards. The mag extension helps but hold on tight or it will beat your trigger finger badly. These things were mainly designed as gut guns for very close range.

    QFT. Don't expect to hit somebody on the far side of a long room with a gut buster. That's why my CC is a 1911.

    Had a Taurus 380 and got rid of it. Now have bersa 380 thunder and a walther pk380 both are very accurate at 10yrds. and both are very reliable.
