New P8RIOT

Hello, friends. I just bought a new Micro CDP, and took it to the range for a break-in and test period. After I discovered a few issues, I searched around the internet a bit and came across this forum.

My first issue was a tendency to not lock open after the last round. In a few cases, I had a failure to fire, after which I cocked the hammer and shot again - sometimes three times before it fired. Anyway, I'm not looking for help right here - this being the intro thread - I have already searched and found several helpful threads.

This is a great little shooter, and I'm sure I'll get it running smoothly. The second picture is the ammo I ran through it already. It all worked about the same, although the Remington JHP did fail to feed one time.

Just for fun, I also attached a picture that explains the name P8RIOT (check the license plate). I am retired, and live in Seattle, but spend the winter in Phoenix, where the weather is much more to the liking of the "P8RIOT Puppy," (a Big Dog K-9 motorcycle).

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois P8RIOT and congratulations on the new Micro CDP.

I have to ask, is that a picture of your motorcycle or you sitting on your motorcycle?
