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!! hammer

I can go back to shooting Barnes ammo with confidence up

We’ve all done something like that Buzz...don’t beat yourself up to bad, takes a bigger man to admit his mistakes.

Good man. The fact you owned your mistake speaks loud and clear about your character.

Yep, us "bigger" guys admit our mistakes. clap

Attaboy Buzz! Ever consider not cleaning and re-lubing your firearms after each range session? peep

Your shotgun better be in top functioning condition for the clay shoot!!!

I had a funny feeling that was the issue, that is why I asked you how clean your pistol was in the other threads you posted. Since that same thing has happened to my dad's XDM, I have seen it happen to 2 others at the range. IMO they shouldn't have to be super clean or perfectly lubricated to function. Dad is also getting rid of his XDM.

The true beauty of the 1911 is it's propensity for functioning with reliability!
