Mine's been 100%. Read thru several of the replies and was surprised no
one told you it's probably your mags (the Pierce +1 in your case). I've
been carrying a gun professionally since 1967. Been my experience with
most semi-auto's, that a great majority of fte & ftf's are the magazines
fault and not the gun. Second reason is limp wristing it and before you
get all defensive, if the weapon don't fit your hand, you're going to
either limp wrist it or squeeze so hard accuracy is impossible. After those
2 reasons comes the gun.
Sorry you're having this kind of trouble with your 36. I carry one daily
that I bought about 5 yrs ago and it's been flawless and I live on 28
acres of woods and have my own range and I do shoot alot. My other one
was one of the very first made and like an idiot, I let my brother talk me
out of it. It's been his carry piece ever since and he won't sell it back
Just offering what I've learned in 43 yrs of continuous carry.
Good luck in what ever you decide but my first instinct would be to
replace the +1 base for the original and give it a try.
