Went to the range today with 3 guns. A G23/357 Storm Lake berrel, a G29, and my new STI VIP. I am happy to say all three were flawless. The G23 was the easiest to shoot. I have been away from 1911 style guns for a while so the STI took a little getting used to. The G29 is nice, but I gotta tell you the hot 10's in a 29 are a handful<G>. Not a single malfunction. But I definitely need more practice, or a thicker skin, because my son gave me a lot of grief at about my shooting skills. I keep telling him it is old eyes<G> All in all a good time.
