      first time at the range

      I picked up a PM9 at the local gun show this weekend and took it to my range, brought along 100

      rounds of fmj for target practice and wasnt expecting a lot out of it for the first time. Based on everything

      i have read about the Kahr break-in and some of the horror stories i have heard was looking to just get the

      rounds out the tube and get her home, was pleasantly suprised, not a single problem out the hundred

      rounds, all of them went boom and once i got the feel of it I was hitting my targets great, I usually use

      paper plates when i go to the 15 yard range, figure if i can hit those, then if i have to ever use the gun for

      its intended purpose the bad guy is gonna have a bad day. Was pleased with its accuracy and ease of

      operation, didnt find it to be at all hard to shoot. I gave it a really good cleaning when i got back and lubed

      the hell out of it, gonna take it back this weekend and finish the break in and look forward to carrying it on a

      full time basis. Oh yea, i traded in my Glock for the gun and while I really believe the Glock is a great gun,

      the Kahr is better for my purposes.

      The quote by itself is just too easy....

      But for real, you do know you can over-lube a weapon, right? I mean, cleaning and lubing after every session is great, BUT you don't want to turn the thing into a debris-trap; oil it where it's needed and let the action work the rest into the firearm.

      lol

      I have never been accused of overcleaning or over oiling a weapon in my life, i just hit it good this first time since it was pretty dry. But thanks for your concern.

      Cool! My early PM9 has never given me a problem. It's run smooth as butter with no jamming or peening through about 800 rounds.

      Well made little gun.

      Like it so much, I'm lookin' for a CW45 to compliment it.
