"break in" I expect my firearms to work when I plop down my hard earned cash. I understand that any weapon should be shot until it is proved trustworthy. I cannot accept the idea that a firearm has to be shot until it even functions. It appears that a certain manufacturer is promoting just this line of crap. My guess is they outsource most manufacturing and hire low paid people to assemble parts into firearms. Why have quality control when the product has a guarantee? Now, when the bad reputation of the manufacturer starts to catch up with them they might set up a web site and hire a paid endorser or two to do damage control. Just my opinion, what's yours?
