    Stovepiping question

    I have heard this around the forums and know what it means but it seems to be used as a passable excuse for a weapon malfunction. From personal experience my USP with nearly 2500 rounds through it, I have never experienced this malfunction or for that matter any malfunction of any kind. I have used many types of different cheap plinking ammo. Every time it has gone boom and fed another round. Trust me I have used this pistol to practice shooting in many awkward positions when I'm not on the military range to make sure that whatever happens in combat I will get that shot off and on target. What are you opinions on "stovepiping"?

    I think you are on the right track. Another "passable" excuse I hear here often is "limp wristing."

    To my mind if the gun is properly designed, maintained, and working correctly, these shouldn't happen--ever.

    That said, I confess that I run into occasional stove pipe and failure to feed issues, and both concern me enough that one of these days, if I ever have some spare bucks, I may get a wheel gun.

    At least I have found that with one of my guns (probably with both) meticulous cleaning solves the problems. Problems will sometimes pop up again after a box or two or more through the weapon.

    And in my SW 99c .40, it just seems to hum a lot better with lighter weight bullets. No 180 gr stuff for me.
