After an initial bobble, testing resumed on the Honor Guard 9 for an upcoming Shooting Illustrated piece. I was interested to see if it would function with the aluminum-hulled 115gr Blazers. The lightly loaded ammunition can give a lot of guns fits, since 115gr bullets at ~1100fps barely have enough ass to function the gun.

Another hundred rounds of American Eagle through the Gen4 Glock 19, too, plus a magazine with three odd rounds of CCI Blazer Brass FMJ that's been sitting in my GPS magazine case since that class in Topeka back in April. So, a hundred and three rounds total through the Glock yesterday.

The HG9 functioned fine with the Blazer.

The Gen4 19 had no malfunctions of any type to report.

That makes 746 rounds through the Gen4 19 since it was cleaned or lubricated with one failure-to-fire (#205). 1,254 rounds to go.
