5/15 all good :-)

Gave my little Micro a go at the range today, had that "click no bang" thing happen once last week so wanted to try again. I lubed her last night with the Breakthrough oil, brought 100 Fiocchi 95gr FMJ and 7 of the Fiocchi Extrema 90gr XTP. Today I ran the 100 FMJ using the 6 round mags, 100%, zero problems. Those are the center mass holes in the paper. The 7 Extrema were through a 7 round mag and shot fast at the head, other than a few misses 100% as well. All in all a good day :-)
...target is at 25'

Yah it was :-) Although not understanding exactly what happened last time out bugs me? There was no visible strike on the cartridge and the firing pin was clean and dry? At the time it didn't occur to me to check that the slide was completely in battery. If it happens again that will be the first thing I check.
