I first function test all the safeties after final assembly.

Then I run a number of types and manufactures ammo through the gun by hand cycle with out a recoil spring from Wilson 8 round mags.

Then I shoot at least one mag into my bullet trap in the shop.

(assuming this is a full custom gun)

I next shoot a hundred of mixed manufacture ball and HPs from the guns on the range again from Wilson 8 round mags.

Then I shoot another hundred of my H&G 68 reloads for accuracy.

My finish is another 50 of white box ball. So when I ship the gun I KNOW the gun works....at least in my hands :smile:

And now my customers know why I don't always send out clean guns :grin:

Hey Lou, you ought to see the "new"Alessi holsters after I have to break them in :roll:


This came in tonight from a good customer who I choose to ignore on the sexual content or my bloomers :grin: But it is a better test of the end result.

Got up to do a little roadwork today, about 5 am [hey, it is a hot m... out here] and the dogs were going ape, all looking toward the barn. So, grab a ratty old worn out .45 that I bought from a retired porn star...slid open the door and saw paradise. Well, actually 2 coyotes, both on the move for the same exit hole. Doing my best rendition of an Alvin York armed only with a sidearm...I sent both of them to see their dead kin.

You know what they say about making sure of your target? Forget that. See fur moving = start banging baby.

I was so stoked afterward I craved a cigarette...and I have never smoked. :lol:

Depends mainly on who the customer is...the Alessi and CastleBravo pistols were received here at Failure Incorporated with instructions to "give 'em the custom treatment, boys".

After approximately 75,000 rounds of +++++P+++++ [better known as "double powder charged"] through the Alessi pistol, and a couple thousand rounds of various calibers through CB's pistol, the boys down at the shed considered them plenty good enough for city slickers. :grin:
