33,155 rounds 0 stoppages 1 (*) malfunctions 0 parts breakages After the Great Drama of the Maybe Malfunction this week, at least my dog still loves me (or maybe just my HK45). She's grown a bit in the last eight weeks, though. Soon she'll be able to carry all my spare ...

Monday, September 29th, 2008

45,164 rounds 2 stoppages, 0 malfunctions, 2 parts breakages Week 23 will have to be remembered as The Week Stuff Broke. I guess putting more than 3,500 rounds in a week through a gun that's been shot as much (and maintained as little) as the M&P Torture Test gun can do that. First, as you may have ...
