    Are all Taurus pistols +P capable?

    I'd like to know if all of Taurus' Pistols are capable of withstanding +P+ rated ammo pressures.

    This from the manual.

    +p rated for duty use

    All Taurus handguns are engineered to accept a steady diet of factory-new Plus-P (+P) ammunition built to SAAMI specifications. This includes the ultra-Lite hammer forged aluminum alloys, Titanium, blue steel and stainless steel models. Rest assured, your Taurus will be ready, especially when you’re counting on it. +P rated ammunition not recommended for Magnesium revolvers.

    It would be interesting to know if +P+ was an issue. I would imagine for liability reasons it would not be recommended. But from a sheer strenght perspective if it would be much of an issue.
    Its not hitting something that is important, its hitting something important that is important.

    +P+ ammo has no spec according to SAAMI so very well work but also might be too much pressure for a given gun.

    That is a good question, I've got an older model Taurus 82 and was wondering the same thing for years now.

    IMHO, +P ammo is a waste of money and metal. To a point i can understand the reason for wanting a little extra performance from the round, but i don't see why anyone would want to put extra stress on their weapon and spend extra money on ammo when it's truly not needed.

    And as far as .38 Special +P loads, they're a joke. It's simply pushed to the same pressure standards as they were 20 years ago, but have been scaled back severely because you don't have to use back pressure to cycle a revolver.

    That solves the use problem, it is safe, but I think I will stick to the standard ammo that I practice with all the time.

    I wouldn't use +p+ just in case I mean your hand is right there and dont forget your face also. As far as +p id use enough to see if it runs good and use as carry ammo that I wont shoot much.
