Frustrating day at the range

Good morning all.
Had a frustrating day at the range on Saturday. First of all shot like crap.
Was all over the place with my groups. I was shooting low all day. Actually was more accurate one handed.
Also, had issues with FTF on one mag. Happened about 6 times.
Additionally, found some finish issues on the frame as I was cleaning it. Under the slide release and in the rails the paint is bubbling up and comes off with a rag. I called Kimber this morning and they are having me send the gun to them. Looks like I will be carrying my Glock 26 for a few weeks...

Usually a bad day at the range is running out of ammo. You really did have problems. Sorry to hear about the finish, I wouldn’t be happy either.

It is out of warranty, but I hope they cover it.

I suspect they will. Is it the Kim-Pro finish?

The website only says Satin Silver but it’s probably Kim-Pro.
