I THINK this is an ammo related problem, it may not be a problem at all.. I'm not really sure. I went to the local Bass Pro today and did a CHL Silouhette practice run, range master said I did a perfect score... yay me! Now when I get to qualifying I will feel much more confident!! (now back on topic) AFTER the CHL thing I popped off a few Federal Hydra-Shok 185 GR. +p (20 to be exact) to see how the ammo functioned in the weapon and I think it performed well...except, during the forward slide to chamber the next round it wouldn't go all the way forward until I let off the trigger... I'm in the habit of holding the trigger (as instructed by the 107 ways to improve book that I read) until I am ready to fire again and then I only let it go far enough for the "click" and then depress the trigger again (step and repeat, etc.) but in some cases the slide would not go all the way forward until the trigger was fully released... is this a potential ammo issue or an issue with the weapon? It never failed to eject, and never fully failed to return to battery, never jammed or anything....but the slide just didn't fully go back to the forward position until the trigger was released... Any thoughts? Btw, +p is WICKED fun to shoot, nice muzzle flash and a helluva kick!! Thank you in advance!
