Hey all-- My C9 is running great.I I'm using fmj 115gr ammo for target practice. I seem to have some issues with the federal aluminum case rounds...but that appears to be it. I couldn't find any of that so I used the brass ammo and all worked great. I'm not sure it's worth the $3/box since I only get one or two stovepipes (or other issues) per box of 50. Since I'm not using fmj in the c9 for self defense I don't worry too much (expecially since I don't have issues with brass ammo fmj rounds). I finally had a chance to run some of the self-defense rounds that I bought through it. I used Winchester PDX1 Defender 124 gr +P rounds. It was what Wal Mart had at the time. I liked the way they shoot in the c9 but I'm seeing some questionable reviews. I saw the liberty civl defense rounds and the YouTube videos were impressive. There are just as many reviews that say it's gimmick ammo. They're about the same price as all the other SD rounds out there. So my long winded question is this...what would you recommend? I get that it's more the shooter than the ammo but I also want to use something that would do the job without hurting anyone else (should I ever have to defend myself or my loved ones). Thanks in advance for the help.
