Most of yall already know this, a while back I made a post blasting Barnes for a dud 9mm which could have gotten me killed. Well, I went to the range with a magazine full of HST's. The gun had been sitting at my bedside for a month. Took it to the range , first shot, "CLICK" another light primer strike, I racked it and ran the rest of the magazine, no problem. Cussed, and put the gun back in my range bag.
When I got home, I field stripped the gun with the idea, how, the striker spring and pin "might" be gummed up> What did I find?? Basically a "puddle" of "lube" floating the entire spring and pin.
I now know what "they" mean by oil SPARINGLY, DOH!!!!!!!!!!!!
Lesson learned, I emailed Barnes back and apologized for ripping their ammo. He thanked me for my honesty and said new ammo was on the way.
I'm sure he was thinking with a smile, "what an IDIOT"
So the moral of this knee jerk story, Think your problem through instead of being a knee jerk idiot!!
I can go back to shooting Barnes ammo with confidence
