    My new replacement G2C

    As I stated in the settlement thread, I shipped my old, worn out 24/7 Pro 9mm into Taurus on 8/6 and got a G2C back today, total elapsed time 9 days. I'll post pics of it when I can, but it's pretty standard fare, cardboard box, orange Taurus lettering on the box, 2 mags, the gun, and a barrel lock.

    Can you tell me if anybody else has any issues with putting a magazine into the gun? I have to slap the butt end of the mag to get it to go into the magazine well. I'm not sure if this is something that is normal, or if there is a problem. I notice there is a see-through notch about the middle of the mag, it may be getting stopped by that but its not stopping it enough to keep a good slap from pushing it in like it should be.

    This is a nice looking gun and feels good in the hand, I need to break it down and give it a good cleaning, then get it to the range. I may do a side by side comparison of the G2C versus the Shield, which I just got last month, they're really similar in size and I suspect either would be great in the role of concealed carry.

    When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."

    Is it giving you the problem with an empty mag or a loaded mag? Is the slide locked back or forward? About how far in can you get the magazine before it hangs up?

    I'm thinking it's stiff magazine springs also.

    Well, my G2C does this "lightly", and so does my Ruger LCP I & II. I, when inserting a magazines, have got into the practice of pushing in on the mag release, as I insert the magazine. I have done this so much, that I do it without even thinking about it on all my handguns. Never have had a problem with dropping the mag back out or anything.

    I also believe it is because it is new and just stiff.
