Newer Taurus snubbys are rated for +P. Unless you know your new revolver is less than ten years old, I'd would only shoot standard .38 loads for practice and fun, reserving the +P ammo defensive carry. Limited shooting of +P ammo should be OK.

I think that one of the notions common to the anti-gunner is the idea that being a victim is 'noble'; as if it is better to be noble in your suffering than disruptive in your own defense.
