First time with my Kahr PM9 at the range... impressions
So, a little over a week ago I sold a Taurus Millennium pt140 and picked up a kahr pm9 as my primary carry gun. Yesterday, my roommate and I had a chance to visit the Richmond Hill range so he could put a few rounds through his PPS and I could break in the PM9.
My first impressions were that it wasn't as fun as accurate or as easy to shoot as my pt140 was ... nor did it feel as well put together as the pt140. I put exactly 200 rounds of blazer brass 9mm 110grain fmj through the gun. During the 200 rounds I inenvertantly pressed the mag release 4 times (which of course caused it not to chamber the next round) and had 7 failure to ejects. The failures to eject all started during the 3rd 50 round box and progessively got worse. During the 2nd to the last clip it displayed 3 failures to eject. These failures to eject didn't jam the slide they were completely inside the chamber. Through the entire 200 rounds I never cleaned the gun at all, so maybe the failure to ejects could have been due to the gun being dirty?!?!?
During the one month period I owned the pt140 I put between 450-500 rounds through it and at no time did it ever have any sort of hiccup. I should get a better idea of my issues during my next trip to the range.
