    Stopped by the indoor range (which I rarely ever do) after work. Brought 50 rounds of FMJ and 50 rounds of JHP.

    Both guns functioned flawless with both types of ammo.

    Recoil
    TCP - recoil was stiff and sharp but very manageable. The guns square back end does not make for a comfortable shooting experience. The gun torqued differently than the LCPII and my controlled pairs showed it.

    LCPII - Recoil is less than the TCP and more comfortable shooting. The sights track much easier and shot recovery was faster and easier.

    Accuracy - both guns are much more accurate than I am. If I did my part I could place them as far as I could see the sights.

    Shooting target I made was first doing a set of controlled pairs with each gun. Time was less than a half second between shots. Then strong handed shooting with about 2 seconds between shots. Then I ended it with a slow fire at the nose with both guns.

    Final thoughts, I would recommend both. I will carry both.

    Looks like a good day at the range.

    I think I'll hold off till the Specter...but the LCPII really does interest me...

    ...if I'm not careful I'll have a herd of pocket .380's...like pomeranians...

    I tried a TCP and an LCP and they were both really stout. Didn't care for either of them. Both were pretty stout, and I shoot a .44 mag.

    Yes indeed the recoil is stout for little guns. Almost like shooting 38+p from an ultra lite snubnose. I can shoot these little things fast much better than I can my 851UL snubby.

    I don't carry a spare mag. I just carry another pocket 380. Until I order some mags from the online store.

    I like shooting underwood ammo in a 44 mag. I'm sure I'll get used to controlling these little beasts. The TCP I will have to modify the beaver tail area to a more rounded profile. My hand didn't hurt but the web of my hand was red. That damn square profile sucks

    The slide cycling on the RUGER went from stiff and a little rough to butter smooth in those 50 rounds. I was very surprised at how quick it broke in.

    The TCP is still working things out. I plan on doing a little fluff and buff on the TCP.

    A friend of mine put an aftermarket recoil spring in his LCP. Although it made it harder to initially chamber a round, it reduced the felt recoil without affecting the reliability.
