    Finally added a PM9 to the defensive toolbox

    I've been pretty inactive with the forum due to some personal issues. However, things are looking up and I've recently added a few more tools to the defensive arsenal. For starters, I recently acquired a Remington 870P (sorry, no photos as of yet). I love the 870P but haven't had an opportunity to really put it through its paces. I am certain it will be a stellar performer. I also finally picked up a Kahr PM9 (PM9093N) which I have been eyeing for quite some time.

    The PM9, as mentioned on here many times before, is a tight gun. I cleaned it up and made sure it was properly and thoroughly lubed. I was able to expend some ammo to kickoff the recommended break-in period. The ammo consisted of 200 rounds of Remington UMC 115gr and 100 rounds of Federal HST 147gr. The only problem I encountered was with one round of the UMC that had a flawed casing resulting in a jam. Other than that, no problems! It will take some time for me to become proficient with this pocket rocket but I am already grinning from ear to ear.

    Nice looking gun there. Do the mags always stick out of the bottom?

    The six round mag does stick out a little. I believe this allows for something to grip if the mag needs to be ripped from the gun during a failure or if it doesn't drop free when released.

    Looks like a good pocket / compact gun.

    I have one and love it! I carry it quite often and have never had a problem with it at all! I would recommend one to anyone who is thinking about getting one.

    Trying to save up my pesos to buy one. I had the P9 and should of kept it, if I had the PM9, I never would have traded in the first place!
    God bless our troops!
