On Crappy Ammo.

Note to self: if it looks like it was hammered together by a Hungarian goat farmer, it will probably perform accordingly.

Where to begin? How about three outright duds out of 40, and about as many hangfires (being able to hear the striker drop independently of the muzzle either means you're perceiving the world at 20,000 frames per second, or your ammo really, really sucks). On the other hand, it makes calling your trigger press easier.

At least I have some Polish light ball, which is really fine stuff, and actually looks like something a proper ammunition factory would turn out.

Which leaves me sitting on two boxes of Hotshot-brand 7.62x54r JSP noisemaker cartridges. Ah, well, time to burn some powder. Just wish I had an empty field and some watermelons or something, since they're worthless on a square range.
