Today I was able to take my Taurus TCP out for a spin, and I must say she handles like a dream. Between me, my wife, and a friend of mine, the little TCP shot 80 rounds of cheap Russian ammo ($8 for a box of 50), and 50 American Eagle (or some such) flawlessly! I had no failures to feed or to extract. In fact, the only problems occurred when my wife shot it: the slide would lock back on each round (I think she was limp wristing). Neither me nor my friend experienced any difficulty or problems. The only complaint I have is the gun powder blown back all over my arms from the cheap Russian stuff. All I shot was FMJs, no hollow points, though I'm pretty sure she will gobble those up like a champ. In comparison to my normal carry gun, a Bersa Thunder 380, I have to say that recoil was no more prevalent, and in some ways the TCP was more comfortable to shoot (the Bersa's beavertail digs into my hand, leaving a nasty bruise after 50 rounds). I will say that after 130 rounds of ammo my trigger finger was sore from the snap. Groups were consistently well within the 8, 9, and 10 rings for all three of us. I would trust my life to this little shooter.
