It will be fine. Just make sure the bore is clean and dry.

This is not a 1911 so you don't have to worry so much about maintainence just to keep it going.

I went from the store to the woods and put 100 rds in mine... but it only takes me 5 min to clean mine.. if you have an extra 5 min. it is never a bad idea to give it a good checkover before live fire

Does anyone know the accuracy of this statement

I have no reason to doubt that that is what "THEY" told him. Why would anyone lie about what "THEY" told him to do :?:

I know I said I went from the store to the woods shooting, but I just had the itch...seems to me they are shipping these guns overseas and may have some excess oil on them to protect during the shipping process, I did just buy a new one a few weeks ago and I did clean it before shooting, and cleaned it every 20 rds. for the first 100...
I would clean it first, all that shooting in the extra oil may gum it up..

I am no pro. thats just what I think

What? No this statement
'they told me to put a few hundred rounds through it before cleaning'
why would I care if they really told him or not?
