Well I went out to shoot the 300aac, worked great with subs and supers...I’m kinda hooked on the caliber in a short barrel...
I didn’t doubt it, but with the current events, I may not get much chance in the future to test it out.

I have probably bought 100 or so different handguns and rifles over the many decades. I have never found any of them to be a dud out of the box. Have I had a minor hiccup or two.. sure. Nothing that would have caused me to lose a self defense related battle.

Trust is one thing.. confidence is something else

I have a fairly high defree of confidence that my new gun will run right out of the box. That said, I wont trust it until I have run it though its paces.
Life is a web woven by necessity and chance...

I do not trust any firearm until I have thoroughly cleaned, inspected and fired enough to know it is reliable.
Knowing when and how

I've built 6 of them (maybe 7). They have all worked flawlessly off the bench. Buying quality parts or a gun from a quality makers, I'd have zero worries that it wouldn't operate first time out.
