Thanks for listening,end of rant.
    I've posted lots of problems here, and have never experienced what you are describing.

    Hopefully, this helps.

    You must have missed the memo. If you have a gun you really, really like and post about it here, someone or numerous "members" will post about one they had back in 1969 and it sucked, so how dare you come here and say they are good guns. One of the things that made internet gun forums for me so much fun that I quit coming around. I feel your pain, but its as easy as saying "I'm out". We're big kids. We don't need the opinion of people we have never met, don't even know, and don't really like. Life is much more pleasurable when you learn that bit of wisdom. It's the internet. Move on.

    Thats what i was talking about,helpful info about something,for people just not to say"mine doesn't do that because it's a different brand"
