okay, I picked up my c9 at 4:10 pm, I was at the range 45 minutes later. In my defense, I was taking a shotgun class but got there early, accidentlly of course I bought 100 rounds of something, belli something or other 9mm luger. First impression- Gun feels heavy, I mean heavy, I can see where the brick references come from. First load was hard to try and get 8 rounds in, so just popped in 7. I was high and left, but, excessively tight grouping, thought it must be a fluke, until I ran two more mags and was hitting the same holes, literally ripping the same holes. Recoil, touch rough, but not bad, but, I have only been shooting shotguns for the past month, and most of my handgun before that was a Beretta 40, and limited, so compared to others 9mm, I dont know. I ran 100 rounds and there were 2, I repeat, 2 failures to feed, gun stayed locked open like it was empty, dropped the mag, tapped the top bullet, reloaded, went bang again. With only two, FTF, on a brand new weapon, I see no reason at all to jump into adjusting or polishing anything, will wait and see how the next thousand rounds go, maybe I just got lucky on this round, or I got a good mag, who knows. After a 100 rounds my hands were tired, could be either that I am not used to shooting handguns, or just wear and tear from all the shotgun shooting, my shotgun has a pistol grip so it works the fingers and the thumbs. Would I buy another, probably, even if I dont shoot a lot, it went bang, it would protect my family, and it was pretty damn accurate, can't wait to get it zeroed in with the sights adjusted. At the end of the day, it was $200 for $500 worth of fun......and home protection. Would I recomend it, yeah, even if it was one FTF every mag, for the price, can't beat it.
