For this assignment, you are going to synthesize the thought processes you have used to be successful in this course so far.

No two troubleshooting operations will be exactly the same. Firearms vary by make, model, type, action-type, and degree of wear. Every user brings their own mistakes and maintenance habits to the table. It’s easy to see why seemingly similar malfunctions can have different causes. However, the mental process an expert applies to solve problems with a firearm must go through the same investigations and eliminate the same variables every time.

Summarize the troubleshooting process by focusing on the common elements.  Be sure you include the first and last steps of any diagnostic you would perform for a customer.

Your submission must be a minimum of 250 words
