The lazy par time is because I don't like rushing things with TulAmmo, and yet three times I still got ahead of myself and blew the second shot of the string off the left side of the target there. I really have been getting lazy. That, and the actual *BEEP!* somehow does degrade my shooting.
And the reason I don't like rushing things too much with TulAmmo was illustrated by round number thirty-nine of the day (#1,505 of the test.) There was an extremely reduced report and the slide didn't fully cycle. I cycled the slide by hand and the empty case popped out of the chamber; the slide hadn't traveled far enough to the rear for the spent case to make contact with the ejector, and so it didn't pick up a fresh round and re-chambered the empty.
I shone my flashlight into the muzzle and made sure I saw light in the ejection port before resuming shooting.
That makes 1,566 rounds through the Gen4 19 since it was cleaned or lubricated with two failures-to-fire (#205, #1,290), two failures-to-extract (#1,367, #1,447), one failure-to-eject (#1,505), and two failures-to-feed (#814, #864*). 434 rounds to go.
