Question HUH?

All I can say is that my response is now #151, and NOTHING appears to be settled. Truth be told, I CANNOT drink enough coffee to adequately participate in such a urination contest effectively... I just don't have the bladder for such things at my age.

SO, what I CAN SAY IS, make sure you bring your own towel, because all get urinated on and you are responsible for drying yourself off...

BTW, watch out for fire hydrants because you will probably find competition around those more than you can handle...

All 4 of my Smith and my 1 and only Colt revolvers.. I can honestly say have only failed due to screws backing out and it was only once. I had light strikes with BB .45Super ammo and Blazer Brass (same outing) in my M625. So one out of 6 chambers failed to fire with the first pull. A second pull and they touched off. A little purple Loctite on the strain and cylinder release screw and it never happened again.

I've had my 1911's fail to cycle due to spring fatigue and one M&P40 that locked up due to sharty Remington Green Box ammo bought out of desperation during the 13' ammo shortage. Magazine springs replaced and garbage ammo thrown in the s#it can and no more problems with my 6 semi-auto's.

All in all, I'd say my revolvers and semi-auto's are 99.98% reliable and on par with each other in that department. I won't have a firearm that isn't reliable.

Surely this deceased horse must be beaten to mush and splinters by now.
