Just speaking for me, I've got a C9 and a JHP. Both have performed flawlessly. Over 1000 rounds through the JHP and about 700 through the C9. Absolutely zero problems, none, and my "inexpensive" guns are still in one piece. As to capacity, figure if I can't do the job with 2 mags then something is wrong. I've never had 12-18 folks come at me at one time. Nothing in my world to draw such a crowd. To me the weight and blowback design of the JHP makes it a nice gun to shoot. You;ll be the one paying the cash so the final decision will be up to you. Price and unconditional lifetime warranty did it for me. Liked the 1st one so much I got 2 more.
