Just fired my new PM9 for the first time today, using American Eagle 115 grain ball ammo. About 50% of the time the first round fails to feed when I start a fresh magazine. I called Kahr and they explained that I need to use the slide lock, then the release to load the first round. I assume this will solve the problem but that sure seems to be a time-consuming method if I need the gun in a hurry.
I guess that begs the question: Do you feel safe carrying with a round chambered?
