    .38 spl +P

    I recently inherited a Taurus model 80 .38 special revolver with a 2" barrel.
    I never had a handgun before, so I started reading to learn more and I
    found out that there is a .38 spl +P load which has higher pressures than
    the standard .38 spl. I'm inquiring as to whether or not I can shoot the
    +P loads through my revolver.

    Taurus Model 80

    * * * * *
    Notes: The Model 80 was introduced in 1980, and as far as is known, remained in production until 2001, though it may remain in production for South American-only sales today. The Model 80 has fixed sights, small hardwood grips, and a heavy tapering barrel 3 or 4 inches long. The ejector rod is unshrouded. The Model 80 was originally produced only with a blued finish, but later a nickel-plated model was added, as was a stainless steel version (sometimes called the Model 80SS) in 1993.

    The Model 82 is a similar revolver made at the same time. Like the Model 80, it was a popular export to the US and Europe. Unlike the Model 80, it has a full-length bull barrel with a prominent top rib and is heavier than the Model 80. The same finishes were used on the Model 82, though the stainless steel version was offered only with a 4-inch barrel. Another variant, the Model 82B, is virtually identical, but is strengthened to handle +P ammunition. It was offered only with a 4-inch barrel and is again heavier than the standard Model 82.

    As for you primary question I don't know if it is rated to handle +p ammo.
