    PM9 Range Report

    I purchased 2 PM9's. One for my wife and one for me. My wife's performed flawlessly from the first round.
    Mine had continuous FTF problems on every box of ammo I put through it. Well after I reached 600 rounds the problem stopped. I put 200 rounds through this weekend. I used all different brands of ammo and no failures. My last box was 50 rounds of the defense ammo I use and again no issues. What a relief.
    I guess some guns require a longer break-in period.

    I just took my new P9 to the range for the first time today.
    My worked flawlessly.

    A total of 159 rounds with 34 of those being JHP.

    Everything fed, fired, and extracted perfectly.

    I was looking for a small but not too small, light but not too light, easy to shoot, 9mm pistol.
    I guess I found it.

    You are correct. The Kahr polymers are known for needing a break-in period.

    Three FTE's in first 50 rounds, then perfection. Now about 350 through it. Love it. It does like to be well lubed. I personally use Mobil One synthetic ao all the guns and they seem to love it.

    +1!!

    And I'll add to this by saying that I will propably never be able to part with my P9. When I'm sitting at home, and decide to run out for a minute... its the go to gun! So slim and light, it conceals effortlessly. Yet its large framed enough to be a very controllable and accurate pistol. It's gotta be the best conceal carry 9mm, ounce for ounce. Sure, I shoot all of my pistols a little better than my Kahr, but at less than 16 ounces, it weighs half of the lightest of them. It won't replace my 1911 or p228 for EDC, but when I have to have something unnoticeable, its definitely the Kahr.

    Spend a few minutes with it at the range, and you wouldn't guess that you could make that small DAO poly 9mm shoot the way it does!

    Its a good thing you didn't just cash it in riight away because someone else would have had a great gun and you would have had a bad taste concerning Kahrs. I love my Kahr carry it every day. It is the one gun I handle every single day. I have a lot of shot through it too. Cant carry a gun you arent fimiliar with.

    I think what gave me the patience to work it out was the fact that my wife had one with no issues. The other reason is that I am more accurate with the PM9 than any of my Glocks.

    Decision

    My favorite gunshop has two Rohrbaugh 9mm's in stock, and I'm in a quandry as to what to do. I own 3 Kahr's, a K9, MK9, and a PM9. The PM 9 is a handfull to shoot, but the Rohrbaugh is 3 oz. lighter, and must be like grabbing onto an electric fence to shoot. I don't think it would conceal any better than the PM9, and has a better track record for problems.

    I've been using RemOil but I can't tell a different anyway from one with another anyway. I am loaded with M1 0W40 in the garage.. should that work, too, in your opinion? Thanks in advance.
