Taylor says that after the Vaal excursion they went to sign gun papers at one of Pistorius' friends house, then they went to dinner.
While Taylor testifies Pistorius is taking notes and passing them to his legal team.
When they were cleared to leave the scene, Taylor says Pistorius told them he wanted to shoot a traffic light. Taylor says Pistorius shot the gun through the sunroof of the car.
Taylor says Pistorius left his gun on the seat of his car. The police saw the gun and told Pistorius it shouldn't have been left on the seat. Taylor says the policeman cocked the gun and removed the bullets. Pistorius apparently shouted at the policeman saying he shouldn't touch his gun.
Taylor describes an incident at the Vaal river. They went to visit some friends. Darren Fresco was also there. When they were traveling back to Johannesburg they got stopped by the police because they were speeding. Pistorius and Fresco were asked to step out of the car.
Taylor said she's heard Pistorius scream anxiously - at her.
Taylor says Pistorius also used his iPad frequently.
Taylor says Pistorius had two cell phones when they dated. One was for work and the other for "personal work." Taylor says he used his cell phones a lot. She says he often used his cell phone during the night.
Taylor says at night Pistorius would put the gun on the bedside table or next to his prosthetic legs on the floor.
Taylor says Pistorius slept on the right-hand-side of the bed if facing the wall. She knew that he owned a gun, says he kept it on him all the time. Taylor says he carried it around with him.
Taylor says she spent about 4 days a week at Pistorius' house - the same house where Steenkamp died.
She was 17-years-old when they started dating. They first met at a rugby game in 2010, after which Pistorius added her as a friend on Facebook.
Taylor and Pistorius met in 2010, started dating in 2011.
The next witness is called - Samantha Taylor. Taylor is Pistorius' ex-girlfriend. She doesn't want to be shown on camera.
Nel asks for an early tea to get the next witness ready. Court is adjourned.
Nel is going through his notes to see if he has any more questions. He does not and Dr. Stipp is excused with thanks from the judge.
Nel reads Pistorius' statement saying it was dark. Stipp saw the bathroom light on.
Nel asks Stipp if it's possible to wield a cricket bat as quickly as Stipp heard the second set of shots. Stipp says "I wouldn't be able to do that because it was such quick succession."
Nel asks how long it was between the time Stipp woke up and the time he heard the screams. Stipp says "moments."
Nel asks for a moment to re-read Pistorius' statement.
Nel says that Pistorius never said in his bail hearing statement or his plea statement that he screamed for help before he entered the bathroom after the shooting.
Nel is detailing Pistorius' version of events.
Now that we can see Nel on camera, we get our first view of Oscar Pistorius. He's wearing a black suit and tie, looking at Mr. Nel.
With that Mr. Roux has no further questions. Nel now re-examines Dr. Stipp.
Stipp said yesterday that the man's screaming was coming from "much more to the left" of the initial screams. That's not exactly what he's saying today. Today he said "slightly from the left." Roux isn't letting anything go unasked.
Roux asks if the man's screaming for help came from the same direction as the woman's screaming. Stipp says yes. Roux asks if Stipp's memory of the event is clear, he says it is.
Roux now dealing with what happened after the second set of noises. Stipp heard a man screaming "help, help, help."
Roux: You could not be sure of the number of noises you heard.
Stipp: It would be fair to say that.
Roux takes a pause.
Roux asks if Stipp heard fewer shots on the second occasion (the cricket bat noise) than on the first. Stipp says he thought they were the same. Roux reminds Stipp that in his statement he said he heard "2 to 3" shots on both occasions.
Stipp also says he saw the lights on in the house next to Pistorius' house.
That's different from Stipp's earlier testimony where he said the balcony door was open. Also, his statement said window was closed, but Stipp referred to the balcony door.
In his second statement, Stipp said that the windows were closed. Roux asks what that referred to. Stipp says he was talking about the balcony door on his side of the bed.
Roux is shuffling through some notes and between the two statements. He asks about the number of shots and the number of screams Stipp heard.
Roux asks Stipp if the statements accurately reflect what he told police. Stipp says yes. Roux re-asks the question in a slightly different way. You get the sense he's going to point out the discrepancies between the two.
The copies of Stipp's statements have been made and have been handed out. Stipp made two statements to the police. The second one was made on March 18, 2013.
Roux asks when Pistorius told Stipp that he thought Steenkamp was a burglar. Pistorius has told Roux that he doesn't remember saying that to Stipp, only that he asked for help. Stipp isn't surprised that Pistorius' "recall isn't 100%" because he was emotional.
This goes to the state's case that Steenkamp was hiding from Pistorius while they were fighting.
Roux asks Stipp if he thinks there was time for Steenkamp to open a window and scream out of it. Stipp says he doesn't know, but says that a reasonable person could have opened the window. He notes that if Steenkamp was scared and emotional she might not have been thinking about that.
Roux says that maybe Dr. Stipp didn't hear screaming while he was on the phone because there was no screaming. Stipp agrees. He says he was concentrating on the call and didn't hear screams.
