    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.
    Always remember to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle your targets

    Reuse shoot them more than once
    Recycle whatever is left over

    Ignorance is the lack of knowledge. Stupid is the refusal to do anything about it.

    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.
