Okay time to get you all caught up. I finally found 2 magazines for the gun. I got them here and I need to know did I do a boo boo. The mags that come with the gun say made in Brazil but the 2 I got say made in USA. I purchased them on line here are the pictures.
Thanks all Debra

Since Taurus is now manufacturing in the US I think we will see more of their products headed for US shelves with made in USA on them. Load the mags up and shoot with them. I always fully load up my new mags and let them sit for days before using. I was told that it helps reduce spring tension which can contribute to failure to chamber. I don’t know if it true, but I do it because it is not inconvenient.

Those mags should work fine.

Welcome back.
Thank you for the warm welcome back and information on the mags. I am just so nervous that they will explode in the gun or something else nasty if they are not the correct ones. Again thank you!

Now that I know they will be okay to use I will do that. Thank you for the idea!

While I am here I have a dumb question. This gun is 12 + 1 right? Meaning 13 bullets are able to be put in him right? Well I loaded the magazine and it only took 12 which was hard enough even using the Ulua thingy. My hands/fingers get numb so that makes it hard and another thing I will be honest with you all, after I got my dream gun and shot it I freaked out and haven't gone back to the range in months so I kind of forgot how to load bullets here at home as well as how to use that Ulua thingy so I went to You Tube to see how to do it. I am making myself go back to the range and conquer this gun but its a bit scary the recoil or what ever its called scared the crap out of me and not being able to load without asking for help embarrasses me. Plus it kept jamming/getting stuck I think they said due to how I held it so that embarrassed me to keep getting them to help me. Plus unlike the Canick 9S I think it was called that I was renting for 2 months this Taurus is harder to place my hands around and has a recoil the Canik didn't have so I freaked out and put the gun away. But as I said I pulled it out after the mags got here and I started to hug it again just a bit leery of it. Held him to my bosom and said I will own your sexy butt or die trying! Okay I bared my soul for all to see. I'm embarrassed to say I'm a bit scared of my baby. I think I will go pay the trainer at the range 80 dollars to work with me and my baby or else I will never be the Alpha in this relationship!

Okay this caused me to spit my Crystal Light Ice Tea out on the monitor. Too damn funny! My computer is a male simply due to its inability to go the distance :nananana:. Plus if you saw this computer you will really say your cuter than it is. :p
Thanks for the laugh and mess I have to go clean up now. Talk later gators!

Yup. 12+1........12 in the mag + 1 in the chamber.
What I highlighted in red is an excellent idea.
Maybe even 2 or 3 lessons might be a good idea.
You have to learn to be comfortable with it.
Just relax, be careful, safety first and enjoy it.

D, I would suggest just loading a couple rounds at a time until you get used to shooting. This will do two things for you.
First, it give you more practise loading the mag, and loading the mag into the gun. Second, it gives you a break between shooting. You don't have to shoot a full magazine without resting and regripping a bunch.

Instructions are always good for new shooters, well worth the money and better than having a mishap at the range.

Good luck, if you have anymore questions, we're here around the clock. :)

Thanks I will take some lessons. I also need to clean the gun after using it 2 times and its been months sitting dirty I am a lousy gun owner I know but I'm unsure of myself cleaning it even with videos and dang if I fumble getting it apart so yep lessons are needed for that also.

Great idea thanks Bellows1! I just fill the mags to max because I am anal but I will slow it down. I do tend to get tired holding the gun up and trying to position my hands and body for a full round of shooting especially when it keeps jamming it is murder I tell you on this old body so slowing up may be best will try it that way thanks!
