    Dammit Internet! Yesterday at Cabela's I had this in my hand and was about to buy but felt a need to look at YouTube reviews first! They said they had 5 in stock so I felt safe waiting till today.

    I had all the Cabela's points I needed and enough for ammo too! Of course they were all out of them this morning!

    So, which ones of you all bought one out from under me??

    BTW it looked like a quality gun for the money.

    Did anybody buy one of these mouse guns, and they sure were selling a lot of guns at Cabela's is all.
    You wouldn't guess from all the activity there that I was in such an over the top progressive stronghold as Oregon. Who's buying all the guns?

    I didn't even know they had a sale on the TCP's! Otherwise I would've bought three.

    I bought a gun two days ago and I had to wait 2 hours for the background check, I was number 120 something.
    I was amazed, never seen it that that high.
    A lot of guns are being sold now, even mouse guns.

    I wasn't even thinking of a .380 till I handled one of these. And the price was awesome.

    Does Cabela's do rain checks on gun sale prices?

    I'm limiting myself to only spending my 200 or so Cabala's points on firearms stuff until I'm gainfully employed again. Actually had some interviews that I thought went well then nothing.

    Just picked up a slightly used LCP at Cabalas. Some sort of 10% discount running today plus they gave me a 5% discount for being a Vet.
    $138 incl. BG fee!
    Even had enough points for Ammo so no cash out of pocket.

    I didn't know Cabalas sold used handguns. I bought my TCP at BiMart $199. 20 min wait

    I don't know if the Forest Grove Bi-Mart has handguns yet, but the OP did get a bargain at Cabela's and it was important to him to use Cabela's as he had points in the Cabela's system and would not use "Real" money (It is like real money, but good at Cabela's only)

    Depends what you get with it. My BiMart special came in a cardboard box and just one clip. Wasn't stainless steel either, I would have liked stainless slide.

    Was able to shoot my TCP this weekend out on Salmonberry Rd. Put about 80 rounds of FMJ and 20 or so of HP, not one issue. Very stiff rack spring, my wife couldn't cock it, not an issue, it's my gun. One mag US made the second made in Brazil. Very pleased with how it shoots though. Now I just need to find a good deal on 380 ammo.

    Nice! As you may have seen in another thread I was having a bit of trouble with my LCP and certain ammo.

    They have had the handgun case in for about 3 months now. I do not recall seeing the pocket .380's in there.

    I have a Tarus TCP and Ruger LCP. Both great guns that meet a need I want, deep concealment and backup.
