I chose the Taurus PT738 as my first venture into the CC world. I got it for just over $200 at a local shop recommended by a family member. So far I'm pleased. I've shot 50 S&B rounds, about 30 American Eagle, 70 Winchester white box, and a few mags of Hornady Critical Defense. The only reason I haven't shore more is I'm between jobs for a few weeks and since I still have some AE and Hornady left I can't justify extra right this minute. I will shoot it quite a bit more when I'm working again. With the Winchester I experience a FTE twice. The other brands worked fine. I believe it to be because of the shape of the Winchester tips. They are flat nosed where the other FMJ models are rounded.
The only semi-odd thing I've noticed is when the pistol is loaded and I'm ready to shoot if I draw the trigger really slow the trigger doesn't always want to release immediately. I have to pull a little more swiftly and it works every time. In dry fire practice this has never happened. Has anyone else experience this?
I do plan to upgrade to a larger caliber later this year when I've become more comfortable having a weapon on me always. I think the Ruger LC9 will be my choice for my next primary CCW. Size wise it is only slightly larger so I think it will make a nice IWB carry model.
