After receiving a welcome message from Shooter, I replied and noted that the time stamps on forum posts seemed to be off by 6 hours. Later, it dawned (DOH!) on me that there might be settings for time zones in the Control Panel feature. I took a look...et voila!! I am a retired IT professional and should have known better. Mea Culpa Included in the box with my new C9 was a note to shake my ammo. Should I shake the rounds with an up and down motion or would a side to side motion be more effective? Also, the note did not mention how long to shake each round nor did it reference how the round should be oriented (i.e. prime up or bullet up).
