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.—Never use “Plus -P -Plus” (+P+) rated ammunition in any Taurus firearm. The Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers Institute (SAAMI) does not recognize such ratings and such ammunition can be very dangerous. Firing such ammunition can cause catastrophic failure in firearms resulting in serious bodily injury or death.—READ PAGE 21–taurususa.com/pdf/slim_pistol_manual.pdf
