Today’s guns come off the assembly line theoretically ready to fire. In reality most guns require a break-in period to allow parts to mesh together and result in a gun that functions reliably. PDN Contributor Grant Cunningham shares his gun break-in procedure so you can learn how to break in a handgun, which is quick, easy to do, and allows the parts to burnish themselves before the gun is taken to the range and tested for functioning.
