I have never understood these stories of a weapon that didn't function, being kept & unmodified, and then later they started working as advertised.
That always puzzled me. Perhaps it's the fact that many folks aren't willing to drop some more coin on a weapon they just invested in. Perhaps it's stubborness. *shrug*
I don't know about all of you, but I can bet if stalkingbear, Cane, Jack or skull got a weapon that didn't perform right out of the box, they would AT LEAST be doing some serious questioning as to why.
My money says they would be diagnosing the problem and fixing it if they were going to plan on relying on it.....
I think you made the right choice Goju.
