I bought my C9 about 10 years ago and never shot it until about this time last year. After reading through this Forum before the first range trip, I stripped it down and gave it a good cleaning. Throughout the year I had various issues, mainly FTF (nose-dives). After again reading through the Forum, I learned about tweaking the mags, keeping them loaded, and polishing the feed ramp. I also abandoned WWB ammo, and stuck with Blazer, Federal, and American Eagle. Happy to report I put 100 rounds through it today with no issues. It's a very comfortable pistol to shoot, and I'm more accurate with it than with my S&W Shield 9 (nothing against my Shield...love it too). I have found the Forum to be a great source of information; thanks to all who participate! I now have 100% confidence in my C9.
