New addition to my CCW stable :)

Stopped at Academy Sports Sunday and picked up a new Walthers PPS M2 9mm. Took it to the range yesterday and fed her 50 rounds off range ammo. Very nice shooting pistol and will be very easy to EDC

nice gun. I never fire a new gun less than 250 rounds fist time out unless ammo or time prevents it.

Thanks! I follow these break in recommendations and have never had any problems.

What is a break in period?

Breaking-in a new handgun is a simple range session (or series of sessions) where the firearm is put through its paces. This can be as little as 200 rounds or as many as 500 rounds of ammunition shot in sequences of controlled, aimed fire. Do not fire all the rounds at once, but instead shoot 40-50 rounds, unload and lubricate (do not clean) and allow to cool before continuing to shoot. This will give you a good old-fashioned buildup of grime and gunk in the gun that will act as a lapping compound to wear in parts and experiment with stoppages and malfunctions. Once you have completed your break in session, thoroughly disassemble your firearm, and clean/lubricate.
