Hello, my name is Jared and I currently live in Michigan. I am in the US Air Force and will be moving again in July. Currently it looks like I will be going to New Mexico or Colorado (hoping for Colorado, but I have a bad feeling I will be going to New Mexico). I just bought a brand new Taurus 738 TCP from bud's for $188 shipped. I wanted a pistol that would be easy to carry in shorts and a t-shirt for summer months and after seeing the amazing price I couldn't pass it up. Currently I have a Beretta PX4 Storm .40 full size, S&W M&P .40 compact, and the Taurus TCP.

With the price being so good on the TCP it was the new packaging that only comes with one magazine. Does anyone know where I can get another TCP magazine for cheap? Gander Mountain has them here for $30 + tax...is that the best I'm going to find? I have found them online for around $20, but shipping makes it $30+

Thanks and I'm going to try getting my 25 posts so I can access the for sale forum and maybe find a mag. :)

Take care,
Jared

Thank you for the lead on that. I just called them and they don't have any for the TCP :(

I guess I could call William's Gun Sight, but I honestly can't stand the people that work there and even the manager is a rude ... jerk. I tend to order my stuff online most of the time because prices are typically much better. I already ordered me a Desantis Nemesis inside the pocket holster from Amazon for like $21 shipped.

Do you live around here in the Flint area as well?

That is true...but after looking up Alamogordo, NM on the map there isn't much there lol. There is a missile test range on one side of the base and an Indian reserve on the other side. Life goes on though I suppose. The cool thing is that Holloman AFB is one of like 20 bases that sell firearms on base so that is pretty cool. There is even a range on base you can use from what I have discovered in my research. :)

Thank you for yours as well. I'm currently an Air Force recruiter in Flint, but my four year mark is in July and I will finally be finished with it. :) Back to the real Air Force I go soon!

A little further north around the Frankenmuth area.

Oh nice. I was up there a couple times in the last month when I had some family in town. My girlfriend and I want to go and see the ice sculptures towards the end of the month as well. At least it is getting colder now so they don't melt lol.

I have been there two times and both were on days where the MGO forum paid the lane costs. Nice range, but they wouldn't let me shoot my mosin nagant lol. I still haven't shot the thing and I bought a 440 round spam can of ammo for it as well. One day I will shoot the beast. I hate how much ranges cost here...I'm used to paying $5 for an all day pass at a nice range in Oklahoma, but that was a military/LEO price... :(

Welcome aboard and thank you for protecting our freedom!
You're very welcome. I love what I do and can't see me doing anything else in the near future so hopefully the Air Force keeps me around a while longer lol. I hit my eight year mark in November.
