Ruger LCP II .22 Part Deux

Took a variety of ammo along to find out it's likes and dislikes!!

Dislikes: CCI Mini Mags at least one FTF per 10 rounds.
Armscor: No Feugo! Would not even fire!!
Eley: I had hopes for this, but also a disappointment. 1 in 10 FTF!!
Gold Medal: Would not eject, not enough poop to blow back the slide!!
Surprisingly, the Blazer and the Federal bulk shot great, no problems.
So I decided to put it through it's paces to pick the winner between the two. 
Well, there was no winner, after several magazines full of both the gun failed to function at all, as in would not fire!! The pistol would not cock so now it's a paper weight. Will be going back to Ruger. I am highly disappointed!! 
But, all was not lost! I was able to finish on time to get lunch in Port St. Joe at Jo Mama's!!

Hot pastrami and it was awesome!! Having the other half for dinner!! B)

    Bummer about the gun. Great lunch! 

    Ruger has good customer service, so all is not lost.

    Like Frrezer said Ruger has great  CS. Bet they make it right

    Ask about your ammo results while it is in the shop and see what they say, maybe they will run some range tests themselves

    Wow, that’s a ridiculously disappointing development.  I’m sure Ruger will make it right but I’d leave me rather skittish about betting my bacon on that gun.

    It’s a °IIIII° thing 😎

    All those brands should at least fire in any so chambered firearm. At least, I sure have never had problems with any of them - sounds like you got a dud out of the box with regards to the pistol. Hopefully it'll be mo' bettah when it comes back from Ruger.
