I got mine from academy a couple weeks ago. I was about to clean it before taking it to the range to shoot for the first time when I was not able to rack the slide. I fiddled with it for a few minutes and then took out the magazine. All of a sudden the firing pin guide fell into my hand. Of course now I can rack the slide but I have yet to put the guide pin back in. I called Taurus this morning and they are paying shipping for me to send it in to them. I'm not shooting it until they look at it. I am not a gunsmith and I don't want to play like one. I have no idea how significant this was.
