    I carry Glocks for on and off duty. I trust my life with them. I DO NOT carry any gun I have not shot first and that includes my Glocks.

    Why would a person choose to trust a firearm right out of the box?

    Trust my M&P's like the chair I'm sittin' on. Conventional wisdom is to put many rounds through it. That's what new guns are for.

    Nope - no matter what make - I ALWAYS put it through its' paces.
    That trust has to be earned with NO malfunctions, FTF, etc.

    I've owned one Sig......a P229 (.40). It was a lemon. By the fifth shot it would suffer a FTF or stovepipe almost every other round. After spending better than half the cost of that gun tryingh to get it fixed, I got rid of it.

    Never trusted ANY of my guns right outta the box.....deer rifle, shotty, handgun, paintball gun......dosn't matter.

    I voted no. Though, I will say, I've carried a gun I've never shot before. I bought it (Kahr Mk40) from a friend, who never had issues with it, so it wasn't "new right out of the box". I carried it for a week until I finally shot it. Looking back it was stupid of me to carry a gun I've never shot. But now that I've shot it MANY times, never had a failure, I'm confident in it. I carry it 5 days a week. Other two days is Glock 30 duty :) I definately prefer the Glock. The Kahr just gives me the deep concealment I need during the 5 day work week.

    Glock is the ONLY one I trust to load and carry and trust 100% right out of the box. This is with over 300k rounds through them with only one malf...it was magazine related (Sherer range mag).

    Even my issue Sig P229 in .357 Sig had some teething issues as it was new out of the box that needed addressed by the armorer (weak tension on the extractor). Once the new extractor was installed, it performed flawlessly.

    Still....even my mega dollar Wilson, Baer, and Cylinder & Slide 1911's didn't give me the out of the box performance Glock always had.

    I might trust a reputable revolver manufacturer enough to carry an untested revolver for a little while until I could get to the range, but never a semiauto. Fire a bit of FMJ to get comfortable, then fire a full magazine from every magazine I carry of my carry ammo.

    I always test the gun and the ammo I intend to load it with. Example: Bought a used SA loaded stainles steel w/ 5" barrel, it eats all that I have fed it, Ranger Talons, Gold Dot HP, and Fed HST. Had the opportunity to buy a a SA light weight champion, it eats the Ranger Talons not problem, won't feed the Gold Dots at all, have not tried the HSTs as I don't have a lot of them, so it gets the Ranger Talons. My SIG P226 eats everything as well.
