So Much For "To Hell And Back Reliability"

Both my Sig P6 and P229R seem to be malfunctioning in the same manner as Robb's Glock. Clearly something was seriously wrong with the P229R when I went to pick up pizza last night, as there was no bloodshed and the cute waitress at the counter didn't dive for cover.

Any suggestions on a more reliable weapon? :)

What about the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch?

Wife was at work late and called from the train. I suggested we have dinner at a nice little place in the train station. The restaurant has a full bar, and not only did I manage to do just fine with water rather than get totally soused, but my 1911 stayed in its holster and didn't fire a shot!

I should contact S&W, they have good customer service!

obviously you need to start carrying a samurai sword.

Man, it's a freaking epidemic of failures.

Went to Sonic last night with my Taurus and nothing happened -- even though there was horrendously slow service!!!

Is there any good brands left out there?

1: Steal a "gat." Or buy one that your young, choirboy buddy stole.

2: Add homeboy night sites on the side of the slide.

3: Tuck the gat into your waistband, sans holster.

4: Have young, choirboy buddy take a picture of you pointing the gat directly at his face.

5: Go to the nearest liquor store.

The rest should take care of itself.

And Bob: My Mil Pro is malfing like crazy. Last Friday, the Mexican restaurant where I went with Mom and my sister was a wee bit busy. The service was soooooo slooooooooowwwwwwwww...and yet, the firearm stayed in its holster. *sigh*

I have bad news, Mike.

Even the venerable Smith & Wesson revolvers, long the benchmark for reliability, are failing.

Neither my model 38 nor my 360PD have run amuck.

They just don't make guns like they used to, I guess...
