    CW9 range report

    Well, this past weekend, I finally got a chance to really wring out the new CW9. And let me tell you, I love this gun. It is accurate, points very naturally for me (and my wife who now wants one of her own) and just feels great in my hand.

    I put 200 rounds of Winchester Whitebox ammo through it (115 grain FMJ) and approx. 90 rounds of assorted hollow point ammo that I had sitting in the safe through it. This consisted of Hydrashock, Golden Saber, Ranger, and some Winchester HP rounds. Various grain ammo, some mags were all one type and several were mixed to see if the gun would jam at all. It digested everything I put through it with not a single hitch.

    It shot to point of aim out to about 40 feet, then we all seemed to hit just a little low and to the right, maybe by 2 inches. So as far as I am concerned, combat accurate and I am completely comfortable with it. I have a brand new holster on the way from Theisholsters. When it gets here, this gun will most likely be my main Summer time carry gun.

    And while we were there, my wife and I also got in 300 rounds with out XD's (her's a .40 XD Sub Compact and mine an .40 XD service sized) and I also shot the primary carry gun, the Glock 23, and I found something very interesting. I shoot my XD MUCH< MUCH more accurately than I do my Glock. As a result, I may be ordering a holster from Tommy for the XD as well and continue the transition away from the Glock as the primary carry gun. Just some thought rolling around in my head.

    We were at the range to practice and also to introduce one of the guys at work and his wife to the world of shooting. They are both from Chicago and had never fired (or held) a handgun before. But, not being under communist control any more, both want to learn and then buy a gun each for protection. He liked the Sig P226 that another friend brought, and she fell in love with my XD. We had a great time and my wife and I had a good time cleaning the guns later that evening. Over all, a great way to spent a weekend day.

    I hated that gun. I sold mine. But if you can shoot accurately with it, draw and everything, it will make a good carry gun. You can conceal that thing in spandex.

    TN Mike : I still haven't shot mine yet. Got to get that done and start carrying it. Too many pans on the fire. Good to see you liked it.

    I love my CW9! It shoots naturaly (POA) and has been 100% reliable. It is my main carry piece.
    I carry a .357mag because no one bickers about the .357mag being "enough".

    Congratz on the CW9, I hope it continues to "grow" on you. I guess I'm somewhat ambivalent about mine. I've had it a couple of years and it is just super to carry and there are occasions, because of its size, that it is the best carry option. I shoot it fine and have had no problems, but for some reason I can't explain I've just never warmed up to it. Of the polymer guns, my fav is the G30-it is a little chunky, but no problem to carry and it shoots like a dream.
    Chose a weapon that goes bang EVERY time!

    I bought a CW9 for my wife. It handled anything I fed it and wanted more. I'll admit, though not being a plastic gun fan, I was impressed by it. Ended up buying a CW45 for myself. On days that I don't carry my 1911, it's on my hip.

    I paired my CW9 with a crimson trace laser and a IWB holster I found on eBay.
    Great carry gun!
