    Purchased a PM9 new earlier this week. Took it home, stripped it down cleaned, lubed and re-assembled.

    Ran 150 rounds of FMJ, mps and remington through it this afternoon. Not one FTF or FTE. The kahr performed flawlessly. I was even able to manually rack the slide, not once did i use the slide release to chamber the first round.

    Accuracy was pretty good at 7 yards. I was consistently hitting low left (about 7 to 8 o'clock) about 6". I need to focus on a lighter right hand grip.

    My friend who was with me was hitting about 12" low.

    Next up another 100 rounds and at least 50 rounds of SD ammo.

    That's good to hear I just ordered one today and should be in by the end of the week. Should make a nice summer gun or backup.

    Glad you had a good experience. I couldn't get 25 rounds through mine without it FTE and the slide getting stuck. Stripped it down and cleaned it and the problems started again after 25-30 rounds. Read my thread PM 9 problems above for more info.

    Did you completely disassemble it and clean it?
    Including the taking the firing pin?

    Could you tell what the slide was stuck on?

    I was running FMJ ammo, I hope you weren't breaking in with Hollow points.

    Durring my shooting. I was hitting low and left, roughly 8pm position.

    I think maybe a bit of right hand grip flex as well as a touch of anticipation.

    I'm going to the range tomorrow. To run another 150 rounds through the gun. Hopefully I'll be more accurate. Looking forward to finishing the break in.

    Any recommendations on Deffensive ammo for carry?

    Any recomendations on Holsters, I'm 5'9" about 165 average build.

    Thanks

    Going to pick up my CCW permit today!
    I still need to find a IWB holster.
