  • yes it will handle +p ammo however I will tell you it is not pleasant to shoot with +p so I only use it for carry and shoot standard 38 special at the range

  • Dana, yes it will fire +P ammo. This quote comes straight from the owners manual -- "Even if your Taurus firearm is rated for Plus-P (“+P”) ammunition, such ammunition generates pressures significantly in excess of the pressures associated with standard ammunition. Such pressures may affect the useful life of the firearm or exceed the margin of safety built into many firearms. Unless you need +P ammunition, do not use it, particularly for practice." -- Have a great day!

  • Yes, this will handle +p ammunition just fine. Manufacturers always recommend limited use since it can wear parts faster but it would take thousands of rounds to really notice a difference vs standard velocity ammo, especially being a revolver. Hope this helps.
