    For those of you new to guns, particularly handguns, please listen and thus avoid achieving Fan Boy status.

    Most new production semi auto handguns, given a disassemble and cleaning to remove any packing grease, WILL RUN 100% RELIABLY right out of the box.

    Contrary to noob beliefs, this is not a trait to be admired, it's a performance level to be expected.

    There is nothing wrong with new gun range reports to document accuracy and reliability of new designs, however, the daily threads touting the AMAZING qualities by the admitted 1st time gun buyer and how freaking unbelievable they find there new pistols ability to fire "insert round count here" with ABSOLUTELY ZERO MALFUNCTIONS and how this MUST mean that there new pistol from "insert manufacturer here" MUST BE THE BEST HANDGUN of all time...:rolleyes:

    Fellas...please, give it a rest. We all understand pride of ownership but as noob's, you will learn that ANY pistol fired enough WILL malfunction EVENTUALY.

    Enjoy your new toy, learn proper immediate action to clear stoppages, and save yourself the "Fan Boy Face Palm" by refraining from declaring that any gun is THE BEST for it's ability to do exactly what it was designed to do...;)

    I'm concerned with the fan boys who think their gun is the best even when they have to run 200 dollars of ammo through it to get it to function correctly. :confused:

    Eh, Gray Goose and a couple shots of Seagrams gin are a good substitute for cyanide if you ever get the chance!

    ...now I must amend the list.

    A. Refrain from making statements like "best gun ever".
    B. Do NOT incorporate ANY manufacturers NAME into your Screen Name...:D
