...Like the other two, the TCP is a hammer-fired, locked-breech action with a double action type trigger pull. The TCP differs in that, unlike the Kel-Tec and Ruger, the slide locks open on an empty magazine, and has a slide release like on most full-size auto pistols. The trigger pull on the TCP is perfect for such a pistol. The pull weight measured slightly under four pounds on my pistol, and is butter-smooth. I can find no fault at all with the trigger pull on this pistol. The trigger blade is comfortable to use, and does not pinch at all. Perfect.

The slide on my test gun is made of stainless steel. Models are also offered with blued steel or titanium slides. All have polymer frames, triggers, magazine releases, and magazine floorplates. The six shot magazine is made of blued steel, and my pistol came with two magazines. Also included is a cordura-type case which attaches to the wearer’s belt with a spring steel clip. It looks much like a PDA or Blackberry case, and hides the pistol effectively, for those who do not want to carry the TCP in the pocket...

Made in the USA.....

I like Taurus firearms but .380 ACP can suck me sideways. Why can't they make these pistols a wee bit larger and in 9mm so I can keep my round consolidation?!!?
