Taurus 905 question

I bought a used Taurus 905 revolver. Didn't come with moon clips, just gun and cheap holster. Seems like a solid gun. Just got two clips in today's mail. The wood grips make it a slow process to load the clips in the gun. They make it a very slow process to unload. This can't be how this gun was designed to work. I haven't fired it yet due to not having clips.

The clips I got are "very" thin. I think they will warp with use.

Does anyone here have a 905 or any 9mm revolver?

You can fire it without using clips, you just have to poke the cases out individually like if you had a single action revolver.

What grip do you have on it?

There's lots of options.
