Everything mechanical will fail, not if but when.

I own a whole bunch of Glocks, I'd tell you how many but don't want to get banned. 1911 site you know, but got a bunch of them also.

Many have never had a failure(yet)but some have, almost always ammo related or just a fluke. No idea why and didn't happen again, but I have been shooting a very long time and know there is no such thing as a gun that will never have a failure.

People worry way to much about their gun failing, it's gonna happen that's why we do immediate action drills over and over again until it's second nature and a muscle memory skill. And if you don't, you should be.

$60 + shipping, if you include some ammo. Does it come with a Holster?
