as everyone here knows I own several firearms. I love guns. So today our gun club was at the range. We had a nice outing and some great venison bbq. We also had 2 new guys there and they were bashing the HP. I asked them had they ever seen one. One guy said no the other had the usual line of brothers ,mamas, baby girl screwed some guy who claimed he might have shot one. Well I decided to break out one of mine. Well now we have one convert before the challenge was issued. The other guy that had never even seen one piped up and said,"if an hp is so damn great let's put it to the test." I asked him what he had in mind. He said lets just try things we think of and see what will shoot afterwards. I figured hey his brand new Glock don't have a no questions asked warranty. Plus I figured if I fubared my c9 that has ove 5000 rnds through it was ruined no big deal. So the first this he wanted to do was get both wet. Ok no problem. Then threw them in sand, then mud, then we ran over both with his truck. Ok so I now have 1 broken grip and a couple a scuffs. His Glock looks worse.Then the barrels of both were packed with mud. I went a step further popped the mag out and packed every crevice I could find with mud. Then they were left in the sun on a black truck and 92* outside with almost 100% humidity while we ate and listened to a guest speaker talk to our kids about gun safety for 2 hrs. No noone could steal our guns as I was sitting beside the truck with another C9 on my belt.After this so called test , we took both and just hosed them out and hosed them off . Of course I sprayed the barrel of mine really well. We put the mags in and his GLOCK FAILED TO FIRE> the HP went through 6 mags before I stopped. He decided to field strip the glock and give a cleaning and it still ftf. Now he is planning to trade the glock in on 2 HPs tomorrow. I did bring the HP home and cleaned it really well & oil the hell out of every thing. Not in excess but lightly coated to prevent any rust. But I proved a point. My local dealer gave me a C9 today for making 11 sales for him.
