Valuable Info

the video

It took me 20 minutes to find it stuck in the dirt, so its only fair for you wait [:D]

All that was visible, was the bottom of the magazinem and about 2" of grip, the rest was under ground.

Here's what the point of impact looked like.

So what do you think it will look like when I pull it out of the ground?

There was dirt in everything. When I took it out of the dirt the slide stuck back about 1".
I had shook most of it out by the time we had walked back to the yard. It shot and functioned fine, didnt even have to field strip.

Still very much minute of dead. Not bad considering what its been through and not having any cleaning or lube since page 12.

It shoots just as well as I have ever been able to shoot it. I can easily hold a fist size group at 30', which all I need.

Heres a 25' 10 shot group immediately after it was dropped from the plane, with the trigger still full of dirt.
