I never thought I would be asking this question, but I have so little experience with the new assortment of small polymer guns. I am thinking of buying a Ruger LCP for a friend for x-mas. When I was looking today a local shop owner said I might want to look at the Taurus TCP. He says Taurus really got this little gun right. I am not a fan of Taurus but thought I would solicit some more informed opinions about these two relatively new gun. So, what do you think? Should I consider the TCP?
