    It usually happens after many thousands of dry fires, though a few CZs have had sheared firing pin retaining pins due to excessive dry firing in as few as a couple hundred. An improved spring steel pin tends to resolve the problem permanently.
    Any mission, any conditions, any foe at any range.
    Twice the mayhem, triple the force.
    Ten times the action, total hardcore.

    On my CZ52 it happened after dry firing it three times. I bought it with a broken firing pin. Probably happened when the LGS let people dry fire it. Got $50 knocked off the price. Replaced the firing pin with a spare original I had laying around. Out of curiosity, I dry fired it a few times and broke the tip off. The competition firing pin from Harrington pretty much eliminates the breaking issue, but I still use snap caps.

    Went to range one day with my M&P9 full size plus Shield and with full size first stepped up, aimed and CLICK. Ok, lets try this again. Click. Tried another loaded mag. Click. Well after getting home and investigating I found firing pin missing. Gun worked fine last time at the range but did quite a bit of dry fire in between. Called S&W and they said they would send me new striker assy no questions asked. Asked if they could send me 2 but they said no so found some at Midway I think and bought a few spares. Not a great confidence building experience. Now after any dry firing I check to be sure firing pin is still there.

In they haste to respond, they forget all about the o-ring they was usin' and put they gun in they nightstand. Later that night, some villain comes into they house to do some nasty shit to they stuffed chihuahua. OG OP grabs they smokeythebearwaggen and when they tries to respond with loud booms, all they get is sad clicks. Well dang, don't they feel dum?

    It's satire. There are just as many folk outside the hood who talk like that. Don't make this a race thing.

    Great answer there chief.

    Just like a Democrat. Can’t just admit that you were WRONG!

    How’s the plate of CROW taste?

    I don't know if I should laugh at you or feel sorry instead. Maybe a bit of both. Clearly you have issues playing with others. If your only answer to being called out for trying to turn a joke into a racial slur is to resort to personal attacks, then the problem lies squarely at your feet. Don't rope others into your delusions.

    Thou dost protest too much about democrats and liberals, methinks. None to be found here, boy.

    And don't knock crow until you've tried it. It's a working bird, so almost all dark meat. Tastes a lot like duck or goose, though with far less fat. All it needs is salt, pepper and a kiss of smoke.
