So I bought one of these about a month ago as a summer carry gun. Moona11 tried to tell me to get a KelTec, but I'm a stubborn old SOB. Ran a box of Remington FMJ through it without a hitch. Problems started when I started shooting my reloads with a 95 grn RF lead bullet. Pistol would fire the first round and lock open. I'd release the slid, fire the next one and get a slide lock. Maybe two or three and another slide lock. Very frustrating. Experimented with seating depth, powders and charge weights, doing the HiPoint tweek to the mags, polishing the slide - NADA!! Then one of the guys at TAURUSARMED posted a video showing how the slide catch (right term?) is a little too long and tends to catch on some bullet types. Video also showed how to fix it with a few simple swipes with a small file. My Taurus now runs like (here it is Moonz) a KelTec Seriously, just FYI for any other 738 owners here who're havin' problems. Hope this helps.
