I just bought a new 738 and want to know what to look out for and I'm guessing it needs to be cleaned good before heading to the range with it.next on the list is a holster and mag extension for it.thanks for yalls help.

Welcome from S.E. Wisconsin. That would be from the MOOOSON, DIXIE CUP line. :D:eek: :confused::loco:

I joke a lot from being from the South a lot though I'm a Beaver Dam Yankee. There's a town named that up here. :) Spent 3 or so years in Texas. About 14 years in Virginia. 1 year in Southern Turkey overseas. And now S.E. Wisconsin.

Let us know how the range session goes.

We want juicy details. :)

From my own experience and what ive ready by many new TCP owners on here, Is many times there is a problem when loading the first round when racking the slide.....The actual firing happens flawlessly..Things usually get better as it losens up...

Welcome from Missouri.
I can't offer any advice on the TCP - never owned or fired one - but there are plenty on this forum who have.

I have better luck when just letting the slide slide back and letting go. Dont "ride" the slide back into battery.

I use the Black Hawk pocket holster from Walmart every day. Fits great and don't even know it's there. Hope you have a good range trip!
