Oh......man!!!! This isn't what I want to hear!!!

Maybe it's back to considering the LCR. I am going crazy trying to decide on a small gun.

Don't let me change your mind.

I just can't put my finger on it. At times it light strikes(even with factory ammo), but then at times I also shoot reloads.

At times the trigger doesn't reset, but I also put on a stainless trigger. So not all of it could be the guns fault, I'm not going to blame it all on the gun.

Then at times it rips off 100 without a problem. It's never had a FTE or FTF which to me can be as frustrating as it gets, and it hasn't had any problems with zombie rounds, so I'll go with that fact.

IMO there's better carry weapons but I use this gun as a loaded table weapon that I hope my wife will use if ever needed, that was my goal. But to have her carry it in a condition 1 state? No way

But if you like the gun, I'd buy it. I don't think what I've encountered should be a decision changer.
