First you have to bury it in your backyard for no less than six months.
Start in Fall and dig it up mid Summer.
Once released from it's tomb, be sure to throw it really hard at a solid concrete surface.
I mean really whip it at that wall, show no mercy. We are talking reliability here after all. No pussies allowed.
Lastly, bake in an oven on broil for like, a day. Only truly reliable guns can take the heat.
Then load it up and go shooting!
All jest aside, guns work until they don't, if you're new you will experience it the same way we all have: Do your research, buy quality brands, and you will be fine.
Ár skal rísa, sá er annars vill
fé eða fjör hafa. Sjaldan liggjandi úlfur
lær um getur né sofandi maður sigur.
