for the very first time and all i can say is daaaaaaamn. ive been trying to go shooting since i bought the gun in january. the weather is finally right so i made way out to the desert after work, targets, ammo(wwb box of 100, not enough) and my c9. tight groupings at about 30-35 feet. i rapid fired the hell out of the c9 and it performed flawlessly. not a single jam. not at all disappointed with my c9. this time i will stock up on some more ammo for sure and i might switch out the rear sights for the ghost ring. i need to get the wife interested in shooting with me that way i have i reason to get me another c9. i will do a search on here on cleaning the gun but what do you guys use? what is a good lubricant for the slide and all the other parts? can i get away with using what i find at wal-mart? thanks, and all i can say now is i love me c9 and cant wait to go back out.
