    basic physics. you have to compress the spring with the same amount of force that you expect the spring to exert when firing.

    cool. i feel even more confident with my P3AT now. i always love reading about people's self devised tests here, whether it be about gun drops, shooting from the pocket, or homemade targets. i think it says something about the character and personalities of forum members here, and i like it.

    Yep, the SR9s could fire if dropped.

    And Ruger was stupid enough to endorse the 10 round magazine limit as well. So sure, Ruger could be stupid enough to make some significant mistakes.

    Alright in my OP the drop test I did was on purpose. I did another drop test tonight that wasn't on purpose at all. I had just returned from a trip and took my LCP out of my pocket (it's in a pocket holster). As I was attempting to set it up on a high shelf it got away from me, fell about 5 feet and hit hard on the floor (still holstered) on the left side. It hit almost perfectly flat, you could hear the leather slap the floor. Nothing happened. I do need to shoot it tomorrow just to make sure something internal didn't break.

    I appreciate the effort and posted test results. It's more information than I had before the post. Could be very pertinent in the future.

    Thanks

    Semi rapid fire two handed at 30 feet produced a full clip of head shots, group no more than 6 inches in diameter with one my buddy owns.

    Pleasantly surprised at it's ability to do that for a gun that wasn't meant to shoot at 30 feet to begin with.

    Thanks for reminding me.....I've been pretty busy lately. I just went outside (rural), pulled it out of my pocket and emptied the mag with no problems whatsoever. My accidental drop with it apparently didn't faze it. I'm embarrassed to mention that it's in a bad need of lubrication and cleaning, though it operated just fine. I'm headed to clean and lube it right now......no need in pushing my luck.
