Well you came to the right place!! This is the best gun forum on the net and is loaded with expertise in all types of firearms, especially Taurus. A ton of G2 owners here, myself included. I carry mine every single day. If you have any questions you'll find answers here. My only initial advise is to take id down and clean it thoroughly before you shoot it. A lot of folks make that mistake. Good luck and Welcome to the forum!!!!
