When was the last time you fired it, cleaned it, tightened the grip panels, etc Doug?

Did it perform properly?

Hi Eric!

Oh boy, I haven't fired this pup in probably two years. Of course, cleaned and tightened then. Been carrying an M&P340 or a G43 more frequently when on my own time in the interim.

Last maintenance was this past September, I know that because I had to move the guns from my shield to my permit then, so they all got the spa treatment.

This gun has always run like a top, since the day I got it, and before that for the guy (a close friend) who had bought it new.

I have a supply of spare recoil springs and replace when appropriate. I used to shoot it quite often, much more than many, I suspect.

This just caught my eye, because it reminded me that once it did slip out of a Hedley pocket holster and land on the tile, when I sat to use the facilities. Put a little ding in the slide by the serrations, no big deal. I hadn't given it another thought until I saw this thread. Nothing happened then, and honestly it never occurred to me that anything might have. I'm sure it's fine.

Thanks for still being here!

Doug

Hey Doug,

Reading your letter here, it would appear that ole R18** is just fine then. Clean, tightened grip panels and oiled.

As we say 'round our neck of the woods:  "You're good to go."    LOL

Stay well, Stay safe.

BTW. . . . . The wife and I were in D.C. last Wednesday. That Capital experience was baloney.

Go patriots!
