SCCY and Hornady Neglect Test

A while back, I made a torture test series on the SCCY CPX-2. I put it through a bunch of extreme tests, and the SCCY functioned very well. Even though it functioned well, many viewers were complaining that the tests were not very realistic. So, here is a realistic test for you.


I carry my SCCY quite a bit. I normally clean my carry guns every other month or so, even if I don’t fire them, in order to get the dust and grime out. Recently, I have not. It has been months since I have cleaned my SCCY, and it shows. It looks pretty close to what the SCCY did in the Extreme Pocket Lint Test where I emptied a vacuum cleaner into a SCCY CPX-2.

Another factor is the ammunition. I carry with Horandy Critical Defense 147 grain hollow points. This ammo has been in my SCCY for years. It has constantly been handled, loaded and unloaded from the SCCY, chambered and re-chambered, and so on. The oil and sweat on my hands kill metal. The rounds are very tarnished, the cases are worn, and some rounds even look like the cases may be slightly cracked.

What did look great after all this were the Traction Grips I put on it years ago. I was not paid to say this. I really like these grips. They are only slightly peeling up on the bottom, but these things are holding up through almost daily carrying in my pocket in the Florida heat, and they are not even an expensive upgrade to your firearm.

Back to the matter at hand: I decided to take the SCCY to the range, fire off all eleven rounds, and see what happened.

Disclaimer: SCCY recommends only firing limited amounts of +P ammunition through your CPX-2. If you have an older model, they don’t recommend it at all. SCCY, Hornady, and East Orange Shooting Sports (the range I went to) would not condone firing a firearm or ammunition in this condition. Make sure your firearm is in good working order, and your ammunition looks to be in good shape.

Not surprisingly, the SCCY and the ammo worked flawlessly. The first few shots did go left, but that could have been me since I don’t have much experience with +P in a SCCY. The first round did throw some dust in my face, but if that was the only thing, I can live with that.

So there you have it! It’s a real world and realistic test. It worked fine. Check out the video below for the shooting at the range to see all the dust that came out of it.
