Default I quit.

So I was in the process of running my XD 40 dirty to see how long it can function without a good cleaning.


I am easily 500 rounds into it in 2 weeks or so, its no longer fun to shoot. It is my firm belief that it will never jam on me. So I give up and will clean it tomorrow.

XD 40- 1
Uber- 0

Dang it, Uber. To quit now would be like giving up drinking.

I disagree. Drinking is fun. Shooting that much was just starting to get to be a pain and ruin the weapon for me. Not physically, Satan himself couldn't cause that weapon to not work but emotionally. I don't enjoy getting beaten by polymer and metal.
