Bought any guns lately? What did you buy?
On the question of the Taurus that does not feed properly, I would send it back to the shop from which you bought it or distributor. A good gunsmith could probably figure it out but you paid a lot for a gun that should work properly and you should not have to work out these issues - that's what warranties are for. (And be careful that if you do mess with it, you might void the warranty.) My two cents..... I would say, I have a Beretta 92, shoots very nice and I have always liked the ergonomics. I used to keep a loaded clip in the case for those bump in the night moments but discovered that leaving ammo in the clip compressed the spring so much that it got distorted over time. One of the instructors at the range told me that you should not leave ammo in a clip over an extended period of time - talking months here. (I am sure other experts will dispute that - I am just the messenger on that one.) I keep my 92 in its case with three clips and 10-12 loose rounds. Never had reason to load but if the moment comes, I believe I am covered. Good luck.
They are good shooters mountain. We carried 92s in the military. Have not found a surplus one in good enough condition to buy yet. Any idiot could qualify with one.
Greensand, thanks, that's all I needed.
No, but does anyone know where I can buy one of these in Wisconsin?

you can see what is being asked for new and used guns. this should give you an idea of value
Couple weeks ago, I found a great deal on a Henry 22. Didn't need it, but a great deal and liked the feel of it. Few days after, My daughter found out she's carrying a boy. Guess it was just meant to be. But he'll have to fight his sister and 3 girl cousins.
Sorry, a bit off topic but thought someone here could help. Is there a web site for used gun prices that I don't have to join or pay for? Looking to sell a Browning bolt, 3006, left handed and no clue what to ask for it, thanks.
A majority of Failure to Feed or Failure to Eject can be traced back to a "limp wrist".
Not saying this is the case, but if the wrist is absorbing too much energy of the slide momentum, it can affect the overall travel length of the slide, and as a result, the ability of the slide to function properly.
Try a stiffer grip for a magazine, just function test it this way. Don't go for accuracy, just see if a magazine will feed and eject properly with a firmer grip and less wrist flex.
If it still happens, it m ight be the slide's recoil spring might be too stiff and restricts the slide movement.
I have 2 G2C's and a G2S and have not had issues with any of them.
Glimmer check on line for others with issues with that Taurus. If you can pics of the casing that does not come out or the position of the shell at the ejection port might shed some light. Could be the extractor, a burr on the feed tunnel or like I said a big break in. Sound me like a Taurus side thy had with pt 145. Meant to jam. We experimented with a few of them. The one that did not jam had shells that did not make it to the target. They were a half in into the dirt. Put a micrometer inside the barrel and it was big. Never seen that before in testing. Keep us posted nothing more frustrating then a new gun they doesn’t work.
Loading the magazines and leaving them isn't a 'quick fix'...when I said load them and keep them loaded, I was talking WEEKS, not days...Regardless, it seems there may be a bigger issue than just the magazines. Surprising, because those newer G2 pistols have a pretty solid reputation...hope you get it straightened out!
