I always hear about how "bulletproof" other handguns are, usually Glocks. So, I decided to see how much so my FNX-9 was.

My life has been crazy busy and the last time I'd shot my gun was at my local gun forum's Meet & Greet that was held a few months ago. I had been lazy and put off cleaning the 300 or so rounds worth of dirtiness from my pistol for about a week when I decided just to leave it dirty and see how it fired the next outing. I always hear about tests like these and figured, why not?

The "next outing" was this last weekend (told you my life has been crazy!). I took it out to the range and shot the worst ammo I owned through it - old, old, old Remington UMC that I had bought off of a female divorcee neighbor forever ago.

I'm happy to say that I shot about 200 or so through the FNX and not one problem! Those were probably rounds number 800-1000 through that gun and it is so smooth now, it is awesome! I can even easily use my slide catch as a slide release now with the flick of a thumb, which I really like (and don't care what it was "designed" for).

Going to thoroughly clean it up tonight, give it a kiss, and put it back in the safe for a while.
