    PM9!

    [​IMG]

    200 round break-in: 2 stovepipes, 2 jams, rest all good. Then did a bunch of HP with no problems...

    Sweet piece, but what a PITA to clean and lube.

    1 malf every 50 rounds? I wouldn't call that dependable.

    I really don't want to hurt your feelings, but I had one of these an impressed wasn't very impressed especially for the price tag. It's better than the Keltecs and Diamondbacks. However, I like me Rugers, and most of all my Sig 290 which is my favorite pocket pistol that I have fired much better! But good luck to you with it and if you don't like it sell it for a better pocket pistol.

    I've yet to touch a Kahr. I am intrigued by the size and hear a lot of people that opt to carry them. Enjoy.

    Very nice. I've got a CM9 and it has been flawless thru about 500 rounds. Hope you like your PM9 as much as I like mine. Gets carried more than my gen 4 glock 26. Mine feels like an extension of my hand and disappears IWB with my Fusion Pac holster.

    How many rounds do you have through your 290? I liked the ones I held I really liked, and they are really starting to come down in price, but they have such a terrible reputation! I don't think I have even heard of one that didn't break after 400 rounds.

    i love my P9. 1000 rounds and no malfs... tons of different ammo ive ran through it too...

    I shoot it better than my g17 too.

    It was my primary carry gun until i got the g29. now its just my summer carry.

    Break ins are ridiculous. Four malfunctions through 200 is not good at all. That is inexcusable for a gun that is used for any serious purpose.

    "Flawless following break in" is ridiculous as well.

    Alaska, again (for now)


    Really it depends upon when the malfs happend.

    If they were subsequent, and then never again, it could be something that never occurs again. If it was just randomly stove piping, you might have an issue.



    I mean, I shoot on the order of 10-20K a year. Aside from my bolt guns, I get atleast one malf per weapon per year. Depending upon the intensity of the shooting, I've gotten several, even with some of my more stalwart, reliable weapons. It happens. You just gotta roll with it.
