I've had good mail order service from gunmagwarehouse. My only gripe about them is that they're 20 minutes drive away but don't have pick-up service.Welcome to the forum from Northern Illinois and congrats on the new pistol. Those mags are very tight to start off and getting them loaded full (or as full as you can get them) will help with future loading and also with rounds feeding at the range.
The Uplula loader is one of the more expensive loaders but well worth the money IMO.
Looks like there is a bit of a run on them currently, probably following the run on firearms.
I have avoided steel. It does sometimes cause problems because it's not as malleable as brass, my range doesn't permit it, and it's never been the cheapest option in my area anyway. I don't think any handgun or individual rifle in the world is better with steel. Leave it alone if you can. Some guns shoot steel fine, some have trouble with it, and it's often brand-dependent.
I am of the "Brass only" group.
Brand new mags the springs need to be broken in. Load the mags with as many rounds on the first time. Then unload them, and keep repeating this about a dozen times. You should be able to load the entire capacity and then leave the magazines to set overnight loaded. Next morning, unload them and reload them a couple of times, then leave them loaded. After a while the mag springs will loosen up and it will become easier to load them.I recently jus got my first handgun so went with the taurus g2c 9mm well today was puting ammo in the clip and had hard time loading it is it because its brand new or maybe if i get different magazine then the 2 factory one it came with?
Switch to CCI Blazer Brass. For some reason the G2C mags like that the best.My g2c mags dont like 9mm ammo that is over about 1.162 overall length as they hang up lengthwise in the mag and wont load in the mag without sticking.
Had this issue with Tula.
1.155 or under is my preferred length for 115 grain
I've found that CCI Blazer Brass works the best in the G2C. I use 115 grain 9mm, and have no problems.
