    Congrats.

    I use a Crossbreed Supertuck (IWB) , a Wild Bill's Contour Slide (OWB), and a Galco Classic Lite (shoulder rig).

    There are lots of good holsters out there, these just happen to be what I chose.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Went out and shot approx 50 rounds through the gun. No problems except one very first chambering, failed to completely close breech and resulted in ftf. Rack of the slide an I was in business. adding some pictures below.

    Sorry had to crop down target to get it small enough. The rest of the target was shot by 3 different people so it's a bit of a mess. But what is seen is my last 12 shot group from approx 15 yards.

    My Taurus was bone-dry when I got it and had a few hiccups... yours should function much smoother once you tear it down for a clean and lube...

    You'll find a ton of holster suggestions at TaurusArmed.net...
