Final score: 81/100
-10 points for failing the 10-8 Performance Test, -5 points for the extractor being out of tension from the factory, and -4 points for the 4 failures it had that weren’t ammo related.
As an interesting side note, of the 2001 rounds fired, over 1200 were CapArms Superior Range Ammo in .45 ACP, which experienced zero failures of any type. Interesting.
As I wrap up a year of testing 1911s and get back to testing all manner of guns, I realized I needed a replacement for the 10-8 Performance 1911 Test. The 10-8 Performance Test is designed to test the extraction and primary function of the 1911 to ensure it’s suitable for duty. I was specifically cautioned by the dudes at 10-8 that it wasn’t for modern semi-autos, so I wanted to come up with my own protocol for “modern” defensive pistols. I debuted the test today in this video about the new PX4 Storm Compact Carry:

Yo dawg, I know that you can’t give a lower away but here’s a sweet billet lower for $69.99. That’s stupid.
I’m never going to be one of those people who gets up on a drum and preaches that the world is going to hell in a handbasket, because as bad as things are, they could be a lot worse.
That being said, I did just buy a set of plates and a plate carrier. I mean…it’s not a bad idea to have one, right? Especially if you’re going to take a carbine class and maybe you don’t trust the guy loading his rifle to not have an ND into your upper spine?
Get your own plates and carrier from CapArms for $200
Torture tests are stupid. Mud tests are stupid. I am stupid. So I did a mud test. I PROBABLY could have used a bucket and made the mud a bit wetter and gooier, but let’s be honest, dropping your gun then stomping it simulates 99% of most “worst case” scenarios.
Support out nonsense!
Hey hey, time to shoot the RIA Tactical through the 100 Round Challenge. It was boring.

Yes, this is a list video, and no I don’t feel bad about it. It is an honest assessment of the guns I regularly recommend for concealed carry. I actually end up recommending the Glock 19 a lot more than I recommend the P229, because people tend to balk at paying nearly $1,000 for a carry gun. But I like it.

Do you prefer capitalism? That’s cool. Do you like the G-Shock I’m wearing in this video? You can buy your own here! Watches aren’t your thing? Sad. Luckily you can buy sweet Crimson Trace lasers from Amazon.
Today I shoot a drill with an unrealistic par time for my skill level and get frustrated when I can’t make it. But I learned stuff!
The other day I tried a series of drills that can serve as a benchmark for shooter skill. I did ok.
