Deal Details

Last Edited by Deusxmachina January 8, 2012 at 03:12 PM
$177 shipped for a pocket .380 with a lifetime warranty? Yes, please.

The TCP holds open after the last round. Two other popular guns in this category, the Ruger LCP and the Kel-tec P3at do not.

This genre of guns are generally not range guns, are generally not fun to shoot, are generally not as reliable as a Glock or something, are not generally expected to last 20,000 rounds, etc. Of course, if a gun with a lifetime warranty breaks at any point, you can send it back and get it fixed. These little things aren't designed to shoot 1000 rounds every week is all. This is a carry gun. If you want a home defense gun, get something bigger.

I think the TCP generally comes with two mags, but looks like this only comes with one. Even adding $ back in for another mag, good price.

Gun prices in general are lower lately. Nice to see.

Good price, but does the price reflect the quality of the gun?

That Cobra one falls into the category of Bryco/Jennings/Ring of Fire guns, etc. It may actually be a good gun, but it's not something I'd want to promote without having more knowledge of it or the company.

This Taurus is really not a bad gun. It feels a little better in the hand than the Kel Tec--which I've owned for a couple of years, and is still one of my favorite guns to carry).

And I also might mention there's tax for us Texas residence. I own and owned three taurus pistols and revolvers. Two have or have had issues. I personally would not recomend the brand. Good price though.

Good price.

I like Taurus as a manufacture, and have been happy with their firearms each time I have owned one.

I bought my wife a Smith & Wesson BodyGuard, .380 semi-auto with laser sight. Nice gun, but the small frame .380's will hurt your hand after a few shots, so I would not recommend one of these as a target shooter. Nice for conceal and carry though.

Might be, but for the price I'd bet that it probably isn't. A lot of guns may be overpriced for what they are, but I kind of feel that they're priced at what the market dictates. If they could sell the guns for more, they probably would.

It's a nice gun...I used it for concealed carry for a while, but it doesnt have a safety which is nice when it's sitting in your pocket....I went with a SW bodygaurd 380.

How much is this to get it shipped to a dealer in your area? Does it vary depending on who its shipped to?

'Avg Price' is about $25.00 to ship to your local FFL...some do it for less, some, more....i've heard some people getting it for about $20

1lb of steel is worth what $1? And it probably costs under $20 for the whole weapon to be milled and coated and polished and assembled everything included.

What about the rest of the world where you can get an ak for peanuts? We have some laws keeping prices high. Free trade covers most things, but I guess not firearms or we'd all be able to buy $50 ak's from all over the world..

One of the few gun deals that's actually a good price. Kudos OP.

EDIT: Are there any sites that do cash back for gun sales/this seller?
