My wife was going to carry a Ruger LC9, but the snap of it was a little too much and she had a hard time concealing it. She choose the Taurus TCP738 but wasn't positive it was "the" one. So we purchased the most economical one we could find (aka cheapest version). I figured if she didn't like it or had problems we could find something else. Well, the little gun does pretty good and while it does have some snap, for whatever reason it is not as bad as the LC9. Here are some videos of my wife, myself and even my daughter (who recently moved up to shooting the PT1911 9mm) fires it several times.

There will be more videos showing that in the future, but it is well worth painting the sights on this little gun.
