re: How do you "break in" a pistol

I clean and lube per the manual, unless I find out differently per research.
I then dry fire quite a bit...cycling the action frequently.
I shoot the recommended amount of rounds through it...plinking and defense.

went ahead and bought a LCP and a LC9. Really impressed with the 9 for a compact. Love it.

That's a baseball glove.

You break in pistol by filling it up with warm water, draining it and walking it dry.

(No...wait, that is for combat boots.)

How do you "break in" a pistol? Lead it out into water up to the whithers, THEN mount up.

Just take it out and shoot for fun.

The more "refined" weapons should need fewer rounds put through them.

Less refined weapons literally need to work off the rough edges internally.

So under the sofa cushion isn't a good idea

With some guns, 200-300 rounds = the manufacturer's recommendation for breaking it in.

With other guns, 200-300 rounds = the gun's life expectancy.

So to break it in you shoot it and clean it.

After break in you shoot it and clean it.

Kimbers don't start working well until after 500 rounds. They're machined with very close tolerances.

Actually, before shooting, you should field strip the gun, clean it, and put a little fresh oil on the contact parts of the slide. Most gun manufactures put a thicker oil on guns at the factory. You also don't know how long ago that oil was put on the gun.
