Managed to find a snow free spot and had time to function check all the magazines. Shot ball, two kinds of hollow points and cast semi wad cutters. All were 100% except the SWC which caused one failure to feed. The gun was quite manageable counter to the many horror stories about the "vicious recoil". Far more pleasent to shoot than the PF-9. I did not last long as the cold north wind was howling but at least managed to smell some burnt powder and fuss around looking for brass.

If having feed trouble, make sure you are running the gun wet!! Plenty of oil on the slide rails, especially when new. Also make darn sure you are gripping it tightly. And cheap ammo can cause problems, as the OAL of the cartridges vary significantly.

What kind of grip sleeve is that?

It's a Hogue Hand All Jr. and it needs trimming to fit properly. It's an experiment and I'm trying it out for a while.

Hey CallMaker, get rid of the grip sleeve and get the Talon rubberized grip tape! Works great, easy to apply and remove, and most of all, looks great too! They allow you to keep the thin profile of the gun and to get a positive grip on the gun. I love mine and so do many others. Not expensive either.

Thanks for the heads up. I'll look into that. It's not so much to get a better grip but to help with the shock to the arthritis...old joints don't like that shock so much.
