    Larry realize the delay since you posted but still might help.

    The dealer we dealt with had me to use a cleaner/lube called Max Gun Cleaner and it helped a lot. The first TCP we bought (have 2 now) gave us a ton of such issues until we used that product and began the second one with it and had very little issue. No doubt there are other products that work as well.

    Some of my thoughts was the ammo we had was a little tarnish and laid part of our issue to it. Also don't miss this is a handful of gun to hold solid as small as it is. But try a good cleaner/lube product.

    I got the TCP this past fall and have fired about 100 rounds with no issues (some Remington .380 from Walmart and most recently some Georgia Arms ammo).

    However, at least for me, I gotta be real close to what I want to hit. At 20 - 21 feet, I have trouble consistently hitting an 8" target. At 15', it is a lot better. I can consistently place good groups in the target with my Bersa 380 and my XD40 (even at 50'). I guess I just need more range time with this little gun.

    I bought a TCP from Academy onsale for $249. I oiled it up before taking to the range since I heard some people had issues with the breaking in period. I put 100 rounds through it without a problem. The trigger pull is smooth. I heard the trigger is smoother than the ones in it's class (I haven't shot the LCP, Kel-tec, and S&W bodyguard yet). But I like the TCP so far.

    I've been looking at pocket pistols such as this and the others. I've handled the LCP, TCP, and couple others. The LPC just doesn't fit my hand at all. Seems to be a front to rear depth things instead of the width. The Bodyguard feels great but it is slightly larger so..... I am waiting to find the black stainless TCP go on sale and I'll probably pick one up.

    I have owned the TCP for about a year now. It has performed flawlessly out of the box with no FTF or FTE.......I have the Crimson Trace laser installed.....Great little gun....

    I just got a PT738 and took it to the range today. No feeding or eject problems but I couldn't hit my target from 5 yards out! I'm a pretty good shot, too. Had another guy try it and and the same thing. I noticed the barrel is very loose when the slide is pulled back....is it supposed to be that loose? Taurus told me to ship it to them and I will but I
    wanted to see if anyone else noticed a loose barrel with the slide pulled back.

    Thanks!

    I had a TCP, but had issues with mine too. I sent it back to the factory and it came back the same way it went there. I have a friend at work that has one and has had great luck with his. I have had other Taurus products that worked just fine, I don't get it. Hope they can get your issues worked out for you.

    I have bought a Taurus pt738 tcp, and it is small enought to fit in your back pocket and not be seen. I also got a bilfold holster that stays on the gun when you pull it out, which i think is really neat. You can actually shoot and reload with it on the pistol.

    Just got my tcp a few days ago and shot 100 rounds through it. GREAT GUN SO FAR! no problems and accurate. There was one clip where i had some clay pigeons that I found set up on a stand at ten yards out, and hit all 7 of them in on clip, i was impressed with the accuracy.

    I was wondering if anyone has put on a laser for there gun. How much was it, how is its functionality, give me some info!

    Thanks!

    Glad yours worked out well for you. I wasn't as lucky with the one I had.

    i polished the ramp with my dremmel after watching a utube. Seems to feed fine now especially with stock Tauris clip. i tried two different ProMag clips and bad luck. they wont stay in the gun; they pop out after the first shot. i can even tug on the clip and have it release from the gun!! don't know if Promag are just junk or what is going on??

    I bought a TCP in the middle of December. Cleaned and lubed it before firing the first shot. I've had it to the range about 4 times and have about 200 rounds through it and haven't had a single issue with it. I think you really do need to keep it clean and lubed but I do that after every trip to the range as a matter of habit anyway.
