One shot and then nothing. As a drill simulating that you are down and with the weapon across your chest you fire up at a threat closing on you. Again, one shot and nothing. They will just not cycle unless from a solid shoulder solid stance. It is just like limp wristing a 1911. Same exact principle. We hoped the 11-87P would be different but were greatly disapointed. I get my knowledge from expirience and from sitting in class at Ilion. I get real tickeled when this topic comes up and guys post how their 11-87P cycles everything from slugs to target loads. Knowing of course these weapon will not means I just have to laugh and move on to the next post.
I get the idea, I've just not seen it firsthand. I reckon in the end most any self loading firing can be coerced into some type of action-based malfunction by poor or unstable handling.
You neednt die happy when your day comes, but you must die satisfied, for you have lived your life from beginning to end.
