Default Para and RIA range time

So, I have a Para GI expert and a RIA officer. The Para has never been fired and the RIA has had less than 100 rounds down the pipe. Today I decided to take the wife and kids out to our hunting property and do some shooting. They have never held a 45 before, and have not done a lot of shooting in general.

I have been reading a few post lately and wanted to test a couple of things. I bought the cheapest ammo walmart had. Tulammo. I loaded 7 rounds into each of the factory para mags, and we took turns....My boys are 15 and 17, no FTF, and out of 200 rounds only 1 FTE, and that was me racing the last mag...... I was very impressed with the para out of the box, it ate the nasty stuff. Thr RIA did the same thing. Not one problem in 200 rounds.

Maybe I'm lucky. I dont know. These pistols have preformed amazingly well for me. Even with cheap ammo.

Springfield XDM .40
Para GI Expert .45 acp
Sig Sauer P250sc .40
Bersa .380 Thunder
Ruger MII 7mm-08 SAUM
Remington 1100
Bushmaster CAR-15
