New Taurus owner

Bought a Taurus .45 ACP, Millenium. Figure I'd join in here, got some questions as a new gun owner ( not just new to Taurus ). After bringing it home, before going to range do I need to clean it? Can someone suggest a good conceal carry holster? What would be the preferred ammo to be running through this thing? Read some awesome stuff from some guys on here, seems like a good crowd! Thanks it advance for any suggestions/advice! Appreciate it!

Welcome from Oklahoma. Yes, clean it first.
Definitely clean it. Really, really well. Then lube it well but don't drown it in oil. I like to use a polymer safe aerosol gun scrubber to blow it out, scrub it with a brush to get all that dried out white grease of it. Then repeat only using regular Hoppes. A little light oil. Some gunslick black grease on the rails.

Shoot any ammo you can find!

Welcome from Louisiana. In addition to cleaning it, load up the magazines all the way up and let it sit for a few days. This will help break in the spring in the magazine and make it easier to load. Rack the slide, while holding onto it, a few hundred times with the magazine out. It will help break in the slide.
