Still gettin' Siggy wit' it.

To the range again today with the P320. Between the EAG carbine class (which I still owe you guys a write-up on) a couple weeks ago and the holiday week last week, pistol shooting has been mostly dry-fire. Today was back to the range to make sure I still remembered how to shoot them.

Ninety-six rounds through the M&P22. Two dud rounds of Remington.

Ran 50 rounds of Fiocchi 115gr FMJ and 50 rounds of the polymer-coated Wolf stuff through the gun. On the 83rd round of the day, round number 903 through the gun, the trigger press caused a *click* instead of a *BANG!*.

Cycling the slide ejected a loaded round from the chamber, and the cartridge in question had been hit a pretty good lick by the firing pin. I loaded it into an M&P to see if it would go on the second try, but there was no joy to be found there, either. The primer was indeed a dud.

The remaining seventeen rounds fired without incident, bringing the total to 920 rounds, with 1080 left until cleaning and lubing.
