[QUOTE=TN_Mike;2321223]To me, function check was, I basic stripped it, made sure the barrel wasn't clogged, the innards weren't caked with mud. Put it back together and hand cycled the slid several times. Inserted mag and sling shot the first round into the chamber. I would have fired it a couple of times but didn't want to alarm the folks who own the land
Ok, thanks. Ya, I understand that - can't just pop those things off anywhere.
