I appreciate the comments. I do find it an interesting thought process though. Some say it's foolhardy to not keep a round in the chamber all the time, a point I cannot argue against. But that "take no chances" thought process seems to defy the defense of the PM9 as a gun, which has a history of feeding issues. I say this with all due respect, I don't understand how the two don't contradict each other.
I don't want to memorize a series of FTF remedies which are unique to one certain gun (smack bottom of mag, etc) in order to address a feeding issue that is much more likely to crop up in this particular gun. See where I'm going? There seems to be 3 or 4 different techniques to use to make the PM9 work after it falters - techniques offered by guys who say I won't have time to chamber a round in an emergency. If I won't have time to chamber a round, where would I find time to clear a FTF?
I appreciate the advice, don't get me wrong. Just trying to sort through it.
