  • Taurus TCP


The Taurus 738 TCP is one of the best examples of the new generation of .380 ACP pistols. Lightweight, reliable, and easy to conceal all describe this well designed pistol. This version, the 738SS, features a stainless steel slide and polymer frame, offering excellent resistance to sweat, mud, and other environmental conditions frequently found in a concealed carry pistol.

With the 738, Taurus redefined concealability and ease of carry: the unloaded TCP weighs a mere 10.2 ounces and is less than 5.2" long! Whether slipped into a pocket or carried on an ankle, the TCP will disappear until you need it.

Don't let the .380 ACP caliber fool you either. Just a few years ago, .380 ammo was often considered sub-standard when compared to the stopping power of the 9mm or .38 Special. With new loads from Hornady, Speer, and others, the .380 ACP has become a reasonable choice for self-defense. And the TCP is a good firearm to have in hand should a threat to you or your family suddenly appear.

The TCP features a double action only trigger, fixed sights, and a magazine capacity of 6+1. Unlike some other .380 pistols, the 738 has a slide stop, meaning you are able to lock the slide back for safety and maintenance reasons.

Taurus backs this pistol with a lifetime warranty. An excellent combination of quality and affordability, the Taurus TCP is a winner!

Handy gun to carry - Review by James
All in all a good gun. Only drawback is the fact that there is not a carry safety. I do not like that there is not safe way to put it on safety with a round chambered. (Posted on 3/8/13)
