i think that is the key here!
Hey, if you want to take the chance, go ahead and carry a weapon with ammo you haven't tested sufficiently.
But keep this in mind...when one things goes wrong, others quickly follow.
Just to clarify.....when I try a NEW ammo that has not been cycled
thru my guns yet....I will shoot about 100 of them. When I know that they work ok.....I will shoot a mag thru at each session just to make sure all is still working properly. I would never just "grab" some SD ammo and load it up without testing, and leave it sitting in my night stand or in my mag pouches.
For me, it's not an issue. Within reason, if it fits in the cylinder, and the cylinder closes, it'll go bang.:image035:
SD ammo is a luxury, I have WWB loaded in mine. I just can't afford SD rounds at the moment.
Question, offer opinions or facts, please.
We just picked up our new Kimber Pro Crimson Carry II's and it's break-in time. Should we fire target ammo first to break in the gun, then fire SD ammo, or the other way around and why?
It's been asked before, so I'll go ahead and answer; You don't have to do all 500 in one day, one trip, or on one cleaning. It's a good idea to clean it after 100, 250, 400, 500, or something similiar.
Locked the gun up nice. Lucky it was on the range, otherwise I'd have been in deep...
But hey. Testing carry ammo is to expensive. Pay no attention to me. Carry your gun with ammo you haven't shot sufficiently to insure reliability.
It will probably work just fine...
I scrapped together all my money to get a reliable gun... a glock 23 which is my pride and joy.
And to answer your questions
-The life of my loved ones are worth everything to me, my life is worth a great amount to me as well, which is why i carry; however, if I spent 20 bucks on SD ammo, I would be cutting into my food budget.
Think times are hard? I can tell you times are rough right now for someone who takes 15 credit hours and puts themselves through school.
