Talking Pro Carry Hits 325!!!

Went to the range today!! I fed the Pro Carry another 50 rounds of 230 grain FMJ. Federal this time!! Accuracy was up to the usual standards, as long as I did my part.

Now for the good news: ZERO MALFUNCTIONS!!!! cheer2.gifcheer2.gif I now have 5 magazines, with the two new Chip McCormick 8 rounders. All 5 worked great!! Then there is the suspect mag. I saved 8 rounds to give the suspected defective magazine one last chance to save itself. Guess what? The slide locked open on a still loaded magazine, then failed to lock open when the mag was empty!!!mad2.gifmad2.gif

It did get a reprieve though!!! It's raining like hell outside or I'd be out in the back yard right now sending a bullet through that magazines black heart!! 2guns.gif When it buys the farm, I will post a photo!!!

Congrats on the increasing trouble free round count. Sounds like you have it diagnosed.

Sorry, Steve, the sentence has been handed down. Justice will be served. There will be NO last minute reprieve from the Warden, the Governor, or the President!!! nono.gifnono.gifnono.gif


That magazine gave me a bunch of grief. It will bring me great pleasure to watch the magazine housing shatter and the follower spring wildly leap to it's freedom!! That will bring much joy to my formerly depressed mental state!! I NEED TO SHOOT THAT MAGAZINE!!!! evil.gif heh.gifheh.gifheh.gif whoo.gifwhoo.gif

Send it to me. I'll hand down the sentence and shoot pic's. I'm shooting in the desert next week and that will make a great target at 25 yrds.
