I'll be the first to admit I'm not a gun expert, so if it was a dumb comment, my bad.

What I meant was that with roughly 1200 rounds or so through the gun I've only ever had a single failure to fire (bad primer), no failures to eject and no failure to feed. From what I've seen, heard and read about some other guns, that's not too bad of a track record, especially in the hands of an amateur.
I think the reverse of the statement is OK as negative feedback and a caution to others, but the positive just sounds funny to me. You bought it new, and it's expected to function a certain way, so if it weren't firing every round (barring duds in the ammunition or user error) then it should be returned. It's like buying a new car and, when asked how you like it, you say it runs fine. It's new, you would expect it runs, right?
