I picked up a slightly used SD9VE. I traded my Mosin and some surplus ammo. I know a lot will probably say I should have kept the Mosin, but last time I had it out, i just couldn't pick up the targets very well at 100 yards, damn eyesight keeps going a little more each year. Besides I still see them for $150 here and there. The young man that had the SD said it fired great with no issues except that he did say he tried to fire it underwater and had a few FTF's but other that, no problems. I think my mouth fell open when he told me this, because he got this sheepish "I'm an idiot" look on his face. Well, I checked it over thoroughly and it seemed fine. I brought it home, disassembled (couldn't believe how simple it was), cleaned and oiled, same with the mags except no oil. Only put a couple mags through it, but it ran flawlessly. So far so good.
