    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    I think 9mm just works better in small guns.

    I got it today. I'm going to go shoot it in about a half hour.

    Good choice, a very compact 9mm is the perfect carry gun imo.

    both are good guns. i have shot both and both can be a hand full, with pm40 more of a hand full. but you only got to get one mag on target to stop the problem. when it hits the fan it is not like shooting at the range.

    I put the standard 200 rounds through it. I had one jam in the first 50 rounds with three rounds left in the seven round mag. The top round was turned down. It happened again on round 110 with the three rounds left in the seven round mag. Those were all the malfunctions. I fired 50 rounds left handed and 150 right handed. I'll probably have to write left handed tomorrow!

    Congratulations on the pickup. I received my PM9 Monday night and am hoping to get it to the range today.

    Had a CM9 (cheaper PM9) and liked it for what it was. Ultimately sold it for a more substantial weapon (1911), but I enjoyed the ability to pocket carry a 9mm. Mine was dead nuts reliable right out of the box for about 350 rounds before I sold it.

    Smile Rethink The PM40

    Because of the ammo situation, I'm leaning towards a PM40. The pro is that I already keep the ammo. The cons are that it is .04 inch wider and .05 inch longer and has a five round mag. I'm also somewhat concerned about the reliability issue due to .40's flat nose rounds.

    Because of the size, I'm thinking about about a PM9. The pros are that it is .04 inch slimmer and .05 inch shorter and has a six round mag. The con is that I don't currently keep 9mm ammo.

    More or less while writing this, I've talked myself into a PM9. However, I'd like to know what DC thinks.

    I have purchased the Springfeild XDs .45 cal. Single stack
    Has a fantastick grip, very accurate, very concealable ( comes with it's own holster), and 1 extra mag. I is 5+1.
    I questioned it at first, but I bought it any way.
    My feeling on small framed guns is : if you are going to carry it high power is better han how many more bullets you need at close range.
    If you need to shoot someone nedd more power.
    Wonderfull gun with many safty features and able to see if someting is in the chamber at all times.

    So you bought something that has never been available for sale?
