You are funny Dan,
How would you know until you try the gun you own until after you own it?
You can rent a gun & try it, but that one won't be the actual gun you own.
I like to make sure I can trust my gun by breaking it in with a box of ammo. I allow one FTF in the first box, and shoot a second box then allowing no malfunctions. Since I also am a locksmith/gun dealer and that makes me paranoid, I carry several guns & knives. I know I can count on my gun to work because I have a lot of guns & I would not carry most of them for self defense.
