Last weekend at tri-county, my new TCP blew up in my hand. It had about 20 rds through total. Fired 2 or 3 rds out of a freshly loaded magazine and the next shot blew out the left side of the frame by my thumb. I knew I got smacked by something off my pistol, but with what and where was a question for a few minutes until I checked myself out. I only wound up with a stinging thumb for 2 days and no open skin(thank god). I emailed Taurus on Monday and chatted with a representative but have yet to get a resonse, not really pleased with their customer service although I hear they've got a lot to deal with since being down for the storm. Just kinda feel like I should be babied through the process since their POS nearly took off an apendage. Just thought I'd share, cheap polymer guns are still risky and Taurus isn't the greatest at customer service.
