Whaddup ladies and gents?

New to the forum, but not forums in general, this is one of six I'm using right meow. I like that SCCY has set up a forum for it's owners, but it seems to me like there are a great deal of people who use this forum to complain. Not even constructively either, just complaining, it kind of detracts from the overall experience. Anyways, I'm a millennial from the midwest, I just bought a CPX-1 (31xxxx) last April as a concealed carry/hold out weapon. This is the third firearm I've purchased and the first from SCCY. I've put 250 rounds through it so far in 50-100 round sittings. It's funny to me that people are complaining about having issues with thier pistols. Honestly, what did you expect from a around $250 pistol? I had about 7 malfunctions in the first initial 50 rounds, a mixture of failures to eject and failures to feed. I chalk them up to running shitty rounds through a dry gun, as I literally shot it out of the box. Stopped about halfway through the first box, disassembled, cleaned, lubed, reassembled, and shot the gun flawlessly without malfunction. It's been cleaned after erry time I use it and I've put another 200 rounds through it without malfuntion. Even with a couple malfunctions out the box I am satisfied with my pistol. I don't understand how people expect these guns to function without any malfunctions, that's unrealistic, all guns will eventually malfunction if you use them enough. Either way I am satisfied with my purchase.

I'm carrying it quite frequently, and I plan on keeping you guys posted on how it holds up, but I should add that my actually useage of this pistol is quite light, so it may not be indicative of others experiances with these pistols. If I have any questions or anything breaks, I'll be sure to let you guys know.

Welcome from Tampa Bay...

A couple of things..

1) This forum is NOT run by SCCY. It is an independent forum about the SCCY products.

2) There are a lot of good people on this forum with just a couple of disgruntled people who think it is their mission in life to take every subject as an opportunity to bad mouth SCCY (and/or it's users).. Please do not be discouraged.. As in life, we all deal with a few Jack Wagons..

3) Yes, SOME issues are created by some users by not properly maintaining their equipment, or they way they handle their weapons.. BUT.. to some, it's ALWAYS the guns fault.. Has SCCY had their issues, Yes.. Is a SCCY built to be a Range Queen to run 20,000 rounds without issue? NO.. But if used as intended, MOST SCCY pistols will fulfill their purpose just fine..

Look forward to future posts from you..

Welcome from Brooker Florida. My first impression of this forum was the same as yours but I've already seen changes for the good in just 2 weeks.

Hello and welcome from Indiana! I have two grown children, one in college and one a working stiff like me, and both are from your generation. Good to see at least there are some of the younger crowd, still liking guns and shooting...so many seem to be anti-gun types anymore. My kids like to shoot as well! 8)

My kids are 23 and 25, they both shoot anytime they can. My two 5 year old grandkids love to shoot too, Red Ryder's for now but I see Cricket's in the future.

@Hoot: Well it's nice to have his resource if nonetheless, the fact that this is a private endeavor is more exciting than I had hoped because some of the other forms that I have frequented run by companies have been of lesser quality than that run by enthusiasts. I greatly appreciate the amount of time and effort put in to giving us such a quality resource for these products.

@Mark38090: Good to hear, my past experiences with forms have been rather interesting, in that people would rather take time out of their day to insult and belittle you for not knowing the answer to the question you asked rather than the five seconds it would've taken to post a link from Google.

@wrench459: No problems as of yet, but I'm probably not using it as hard as I should.

@Toter: Guns will always be popular with american youth, as long as they were raised right and well educated.

@Silverbullet: With how active this forum seem to be, I think you're right.

@Mark38090: Yeah I'm right in thier age range, I shoot any opportunity I get, which never seems like it's enough. I'm afraid that like most millenials, that I am too poor to be able to shoot as frequently as I would like.
