I have no plans on carrying them anymore. I’ll just fire them off next time I go out. No need to worry about safety issues at a range, I shoot outside near the foot hills, only me and anyone that’s with me, for miles.
It is nice to know others have experienced washing issues.

i guess thats one good thing about being stationed in new york. every time i come back from home i make sure to account for all of my ammo and weapons. though that should change here in a couple months. but as of yet i haven't washed any of my carry ammo. i have cleaned up some loose rounds i picked up on certain ranges here just cause its nice to have a few tracers around but even then i disassemble the round as you never can tell why its laying next to the firing point.

Every well-bred petty crook knows: the small concealable weapons always go to the far left of the place setting.

My uncle kept a .38 on his nightstand for years loaded with the same five 158 gr lead roundnose cartridges. He cleaned and OILED the gun every six months or so, but he never changed out the cartridges. When I finally inherited the gun, I took it to the range and three of the five rounds misfired, one was a squib and the fifth seemed to fire normally.
