I didn't expect to see these available till 2010, but my LGS had 2 in the case and I bought one today with stainless steel slide. Caliber - .380 ACP Action - DAO Capacity - 6+1 or 8+1 w/extended mag Length - 5.2" Height - 3.75" Width - .87" Fixed Sights Trigger Pull - 5-7 lbs Weight - 10.2 oz I think that TCP stands for Taurus Compact Pistol. It is obvious that Taurus is wanting this pistol to compete directly with the Kel-Tec P3AT and Ruger LCP. Here is what I found that the TCP has over the competition: 1) Slide lock that locks open after last round is fired. 2) Loaded chamber indicator 3) Not great sights, but a little better than the Kel-Tec & Ruger 4) Trigger does not stack much at all and breaks cleanly. Comes with a carrying case you can hook on your belt with magnetic closures. I'll update this post again with a range report later.
