Gun Test Updates...

Last Tuesday I put 20 rounds of 185gr Speer GDHP through the Glock 37, shooting benched 5-shot groups at 25 yards. They were all in the 3.5"-4" range. There were no malfunctions to report.

The Glock 37 has now fired 670 rounds since it was last cleaned or lubed, with one parts breakage. 1,330 rounds to go.

After work on Wednesday, I ran 85 rounds of Lucky Gunner's Fiocchi .380 FMJ through the gun and let a coworker shoot the last fifteen. There were no malfunctions to report. Still need the UpLULA to get the last round into the 15-round magazines; other than that, it really does seem to be an excellent "Grandma Gun" for those who have issues with hand strength or arthritis that make it difficult to run an ordinary semiauto or a hard-recoiling DAO J-frame with a ten- or twelve-pound trigger.
85 rounds at 21 feet.

That's 1020 rounds fired since the gun was last cleaned or lubricated, with one failure to go completely into battery (#447). 980 rounds to go.
