"Once you break through it you might end up with a reliable gun." I very seldom count rounds fired in any gun. I usually just grab a couple handfuls of ammo. Come to think of it, all this ammo is gone. (not all of it was shot in the G42, but a lot was) Now all the 380 ammo, and most all reloads and factory ammo, is in 30 and 50 cal steel ammo cans. This is the stuff I'm shooting in the G42 now days. It looks like it's time to crank up the 380 reloader again.
