A CCW instructor piped in too and said he wouldn't buy a Taurus either for fear it would end up in a drug dealer's hands in Mexico.

    So, it's got to be true, right?!? A gun counter guy, LEO and CCW instructor all verified it!
    Perhaps it would be better for those 'needs repairs' guns to go to the Mexican drug dealers instead of the 'good stuff' our idiot gov has enabled them to get.

    I love my TCP. Everybody mentions the "slide open after last shot" business but one other feature I like is the chamber loaded indicator. Does the LCP have that?

    I will answer this again but it will seem sort of contradictory, we really like our TCPs, haveing had in addition a LCP, Keltec, and a POS Diamondback, SCCY, but we would most likely never buy another Taurus, there cust service SUCKS, from what I see, the guns are no better or worse than any others in that price range, but if you need factory help your further ahead tradeing the Taurus, for something else, we are slowly filtering out the cheaper guns, as finances allow, from our collection, and before anybody says anything can screw up, I know this, but if I needed a part or repair to one of the Colts or Springfield, Sig, I would have the part or shipping label in a day or two, and no static from some snotty telephone operator, who thinks they know something about guns
    Bad Guys of the world beware the next time you think about jumping on a old guy, because its a fair bet he's to old to fight and probably to fat to run, but can put one in your eye at 50ft with his weak hand

  5. I don't have experience with the LCP but I did own a TCP and I own a LC9 and SR9c now. Personally I'd trust any Ruger pistol more than a Taurus. The TCP had FTE issues with multiple brands of ammo and was not accurate. I sold it and the person who bought it sent it back to the factory. They supposedly fixed several issues. So if I were going with either it would be the LCP by a mile.

    Not that I'm makeing excuses for it, but how many rds did the little gun have through it? ours were shot a lot, before I would carry them, maybe 4 or 5 hundred rds, I know thats lot to shoot for a 380, and a small one at that, and I don't have no particular love for Taurus, in fact if we did not alread have the TCPs I doubt I would buy one, only because of Taurus crappy cust service, and I know Ruger is a very good brand, but we did not care for the feel of the LCP

    My TCP has over 300 rounds through it now and except for the 102grn GS, it eats them all. I find mine to be accurate and reliable but only after putting the rounds through it first.
    Once you know what it likes, stick with it and you will be fine.

    Just makes me think or the Ruger reputation vs that of Taurus. I am sure everyone can come up with an anecdotal story pro and con of Taurus vs Ruger but I think the overall reputation of Ruger is excellent.
    I own a LCP. Not going into detailed review I will just say that it is light, easy to carry and very accurate....even with me shooting it. :-) We also have a Kahr p380. It is one well made gun. Plus the slide locks back after the last shot, something I like. The only prob with the Kahr is that it costs about 30% more then the Ruger.
    You can't go wrong with either of these guns.

    What's that saying? The plural of anecdote is NOT data?

    I have a TCP and my father-in-law has a LCP. I have put a few hundred rounds through both pistols and could find little to no difference between the two pistols. Can't really compare price because his LCP has a laser sight.

  11. I have a Taurus Tcp. Serial # ends in C. I think it's the newest version out. ( A, B,C ). I'll admit i was a little hesitant to buy it because of negative reviews. But it's been nothing short of wonderful. No experience with the LCP. But I've heard good things about it. Ruger makes a good product. With the Tcp, last round hold open. Slide locks back. Trigger pull is smooth. The sights aren't much. But it's really just a close up gun. ( Belly gun ).
