I may be wierd but I have had fun trying to solve my C9 problems. I have a Beretta Neos 22 that I have put about 8000 rounds through since August without a hiccup, which is good news, but I also realize I really know nothing/zip about the workings of that pistol, just shoot it, clean it and put it away. The C9, on the other hand, I have grown to know pretty well...admittedly solving some problems that I have created myself, but that's another story...shipped it back once, had parts shipped to me the last time. Eventually solved a jamming problem (mostly change of ammo and putting more rounds thru, clean slide); failure to lock back after last round (fixed with new parts); magazine slipping down about a 1/2in. after last round (still occurs, but now very infrequently--am looking at the wire spring under right pistol grip). While I look at the Beretta as simply an efficient tool, I look at the C9 as more of an old friend--I helped it to work better, it helped me the learn more about semiautomatic pistols. If I had to sell my C9 I figure I would lose about $50--money well spent for valuable learning experiences.

Points to consider: I am retired so I have time to play around with this stuff and I only use it for target shooting.

I feel the same way. I kind of just jump into it when I have a problem with a firearm and am glad for having to do those little tweaks. If it wasn't for that, I would be in a bad position in a SHTF situation and have a 2 1/2 pound piece of metal to throw at someone.

There certainly is a certain satisfaction you get...also, when you can't go out and shoot for whatever reason, it's nice to be able to do something gun-related like taking it apart and having something to do with it when you take it apart.

Glad to see other people feel the same way!

Hey Liberal
thought your picture icon was one of those "we're number ONE!" floppy finger things--then realized it was the outline of the State of New Hampshire :)

rafleming37, that there's a healthy attitude to have! I don't know near enough about my HP's cause I'm one of the fortunate ones whose guns sang right out of the box. Good for you!

LOL. that might just work. If it was the state of Ohio, I might have thought it was a heart not paying attention to it.
