I recently sold off a Taurus TCP .380 after successive failures to feed anything except FMJ reliably, and now I would like to replace it. My first TCP was stolen and had more reliable feeding which prompted me to purchase a second one. Taurus has always treated me decently but I'm ready to move on. The Pico has a true DAO trigger that I prefer in a pocket gun and the magazine release felt very hard to press by mistake, which happened a few times with my Taurus. The size did not seem any more problematic than the Taurus but the clerk who allowed me to handle one spent 3 minutes telling me how much he hated them and suggested that I buy anything else. Anything at all. Their $400 price had me in agreement, at least temporarily. Why so much hate? I found a few older criticisms online but it doesn't appear very common so I thought I'd try to drum up a new conversation and ask everyone on THR to share their experience.
