I went to my LGS the other day just to kill some time. They know I'm a lefty. And an impulse buyer. *And my wife is a hard no on AR15's in the house. I've wanted a higher caliber rifle and the next thing I know I have an RDB in my hands and they're explaining all the ambidextrous controls and downward ejection of shells. So, I make it out of the store without buying it, but it's eating at me. I do a little research and the price was OK for a 20" barrel. I like the longer barrel because I may get to hog hunt with it eventually. Anyway, long story short, I bought it. However, I have yet to bring it home. I'm storing it at a friend's house until I figure out a way to gracefully break it to the wife.

*I have 4 pistols, a revolver, 3 .22 rifles, and a Sub 2000. She's not anti-gun, but definitely not a fan of ARs. Now technically this bullpup isn't an AR, is it?

Take the Sub 2000 out to the range and comeback with the RDB. She’ll never know the difference.
Well karma happened quickly this time. Took the RDB to the range for the first time last night and had 10 rounds out of 100 not fire. Looks like lite primer strikes. Tried increasing the gas but still had no luck eliminating the issue. Ammo was PMC X-TAC 5.56. Kel Tec was great when I called them this morning. Sending the rifle back for repair.

It was a great shooter when it went bang. Got it sighted in and had a lot of fun, even with the failure frustrations. So nice not having brass & gas shot across my face.
Yes, not a gas issue. Could be a bad ammo lot, but probably an issue with the internals.

Do you use grease or wonderlube crap (like Froglube or Slide guide, etc)? If you do… don’t. They cause a lot of FTF.
New guns just show up in the safe. Luckily I have enough to where she doesn't real know what I have.

If your significant other can tell you acquired a new firearm… that means you haven’t acquired enough of them and need to purchase more. 😉
