    FTF and FTE and one double feed with the S&B. The hotter the load the better the DB seems to function. It loves Speer Gold Dot but I use the Lawman for carry because I want maximum penetration. I use Breakfree CLP for a lubricant and leave the rails wet. Your close to the DB factory and I have been told that if you have problems and take it directly to them they will take care of the problem right then. I cannot varify that though. Keep us posted. I really like the DB but you need to feel confident with it's reliability.
    With that long trigger pull on the DB left and low is normal for most.

    So I was able to make it to the range today.

    And... it worked great! The Remington UMC worked. I fired off all 50 rounds with only a single malfunction, which I believe was the ammo's fault. It failed to eject. No stovepipe or jam, it just seems the slide didn't move at all. I heard a much quieter bang than usual, and sure enough, the spent round was still neatly in the chamber. I made a big mistake that luckily didn't lead to a bigger failure - I failed to check the barrel. An undercharged round like that could've been a squib. Luckily it wasn't.

    Anyway, one thing I noticed with the UMC is that it seemed "hotter" than the PPU crap I was shooting before. Definitely more of a bang, both heard and felt.

    Only thing is that I occasionally had a bit of trouble feeding the first round off a magazine into an empty chamber successfully. This pistol is very sensitive to slide riding, as I've mentioned before. I think I'm getting better at slingshotting the slide. But that seems to be more user error.

    I'm very relieved. I hope this performance keeps up.

    My trigger finger was actually almost stinging a bit by the end there. I was feeling some of the recoil through the trigger. But it's still a pretty comfortable gun to shoot for sure. But what matters is that the pistol worked.
