I put another 100 rounds on my new P99c today without a glitch. Still amazed at how accurate this gun is.

I now have, including the rounds today, 250 rounds through it, with one FTF, that happened during the first 25 rounds. Since then, it has been flawless.

My question is how many rounds without any glitches should you have before you can consider the gun reliable for carry?

Thanks.

500 is the benchmark. But guys I shoot comp with don't consider a gun really broken in until they have 1500 rds through the gun and many of them shoot that in one afternoon....

In the first 100 rounds I don't consider any FTF or FTE to be a problem (unless it's happening every round).

Anyways for a service pistol 500 rounds is the break in point that I would consider reliable. For a 1911 style competition pistol I wouldn't consider it reliable until I had about 1,000 rounds through it.

By the way the FTF was not a jam, and the round did fire on the second pull. And, it has not happened since.

FTE=failure to eject.
FTF=failure to feed, or so I thought.
It sounds like Ron had a failure to fire.

Yeah a failure to fire is a problem if it happens more then once with different types of known good ammo.

That could be a sign of firing pin problems. That's not something that needs to be broken in.

Well, it only happened that one time, with range practice ammo, and I have over 200 more rounds through the gun since then. Do you think that I should be worried about it at this time?

I wouldn't be worried. Keep shooting it a bit more and it will convince you itself.

I buy a case of ammo with every new pistol that I consider for serious use and then shoot it up in a day.
