    In my manual for my Taurus PT 92 9mm,it says the maximum bullet weight should be 124 gr. Today I bought some Gold Speer 147 gr JHP; could the 147 gr damage my gun?

    you might have to replace a few springs faster than with the 124's, but I don't think its gonna blow or break the extractor claw.

    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    I'd say it would be fine.

    I mean, 23 grains = 0.0525714286 ounces, per most converting calculators...

    Granted, it's about an extra 20% to the bullet weight, but....

    That being said, get your eyes and ears on when you do try. :shock:
    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.
