Absolutely right on!  The handgun must fire all the time, every time.   It must always be reliable.  Otherwise, it is of no value whatsoever.

I accept that some handguns require a break-in period.

My R9S proved to be 100% reliable.  However, my experience indicated that it must be cleaned and lubed fairly often, even if carried and not fired.

For example, five months between cleanings was not acceptable.  I should have known better to carry a pistol in the pocket for that long.

You're right on the money, Bill.

Keeping track of the little tips and tricks that pertain to each particular handgun is really important.  In the case of the R9, as you say, clean and lube routinely for best reliability.  In the case of my Ruger .357...well, that sucker will fire after being ignored for years!  :-)  (though I still clean and lube it occasionally too...)
