    I buy a new TCP 738 and all I got was this silly little case...

    When looking at the reviews of the TCP 738 on Youtube, most of them show it coming in a nice white box, with a carrying pouch and an extra mag. All mine came with was this ridiculous little plastic case (see photos), only one mag and no pouch.

    Granted... I really like the gun, and I got a good deal on it ($229), but at that already cheap price I would have gladly paid a little more for the "deluxe" box with the accessories. I would never use that pouch to conceal carry this gun, but it could have come in handy for something else, and I definitely could have used the extra mag.

    Does the box and accessories only come with the more expensive two-toned stainless model, or is this just the way Taurus is shipping them now to cut costs?

    You may have purchased an FS series. I believe they market the FS series handguns without the extras at a lower price to open up the market to those with a limited

    I wouldn't mind that case. Looks better for storage purposes than the card board box mine came with, but I did get the extra mag.

    thats all mine came with, it is all that comes with the base model, no bulldog cell holster, no extra mag.
    now i did buy a celphone type holster, i had the desantis holster and bought my extra mag from the same gun store i got the 738 for 199 from.
    if you wanted the extra goodies, shoulda got the more expensive model.
    just a few toys,
    days like this, i'd rather keep it to me
    i'm not gonna do the goooberments work for em.

    I didn't know there was a more expensive option with a different case. It was an impulse buy when I saw it. Got a good deal. No biggie... I'll just have to fork over the cash to get a second mag. That is all I'm going to fit in that little CD wallet of a case anyway.

    I agree with Harry. Here in TX, the gun and 1 mag were going for $199 at Academy which is about what you paid, give or take. I got the extra mag and case for $269. I wolud have brought the 738 either way.

    Yeah, you got the plain Jane blued gun that is cheaper and comes with just one mag. I got mine for $198 and I have seen where a couple of people got them cheaper than that. The stainless steel and black stainless steel versions come with two mags and are quite a bit more expensive. I think the black SS ones look great. But my thinking was that this is going to be a concealed backup gun, so I didn't need the bling.
    Very interesting.......

    I don't know what you mean about that nice white box, it's just cardboard, lol. I got the stainless version with the bulldog case and extra mag and paid $320 for it. I know it was a little high, but no other shops in the area had any. I'd gladly have that good lookin' plastic case than the cardboard box. The bulldog case is kinda weird, I don't think I'll ever carry the gun in it.
