Hi everyone,

My local gun shop is offering this 738 .380 TCP for $210.00. Is this a good price?

What comes with it for that price? I got my TCP with two magazines and the "PDA" case for $250.

I don't think that's a bad price at all. I've read here that some folks have got the TCP w/one magazine for $199 or a little less...

I love mine! Mine has the carbon fiber finish which a lot of people don't like but it caught my eye. I've only got 200 rounds thru it so far but I haven't had a single issue with it. Works great for concealed carry here in southern AZ where I wear shorts and a t-shirt the majority of the year.

OK thanks again. I've been researching on youtube and there has only been 1 negative review so far that I saw. Here is the link...

Yep, it's a fair price with how things sell in my area. I like the black more than the stainless too!

Yes it is, You might find it cheaper online but consider if you found it online for less you will need to factor in shipping and transfer? I paid 170.00 for mine on gunbroker with $15.00 shipping and $35.00 for the transfer. So in my opinion it is a fair price.

I picked mine up two weeks ago, same thing for $199. It's a good deal. Clean it well before sending rounds down range.

I bought the "one magazine and no pouch" 738 for $199 at Academy. It's currently attached to my ankle. :)

Academy has the "two magazine and pouch" ones for $279.

Separately, I bought a second mag and the ankle holster, so total ended up paying about as much as the 2+pouch, but got the holster I wanted, rather than the belt one included in the 2+pouch package.

So to answer your question, $210 is a decent price for the 1-mag 738.

Yes, that's a good deal for a fine little pistol.

I bought mine locally here in Jacksonville, Fla. for $199. I bought an extra mag separately for $25. I've only got 100 rds through it, but I am impressed thus far. $210 is a fair price, I would snatch it up before their all gone.

Just bought it!

I just got back from the gun store with it. I made sure to field strip it and clean it very good. It was a little tricky getting the dissasembly pin to go back into the frame and slide but I got it. As you can see in the picture, it is barely larger than my cell phone! Can't wait to try it!!

You might want to cycle the side several hundred times to loosen it up a bit. Mine was real tight when I first bought it.
