    Rohrbaugh 9mm, anyone carrying one regular?

    Don't see it mentioned much as a CC weapon. Appears to be pretty small, along the lines as the Khar PM9 and PF9. Thoughts and impressions on this gun?

    I'd love to have one. Got to play with a sample at the SHOT Show. Tremendous workmanship. Beats the other baby guns hands down, and it's 9mm!

    The Rohrbaugh is significantly smaller than the PM9. It is much closer to the P3AT in size. However, the Rohrbaugh is not +p rated; the PM9 is.

    I know it's really small and that appeals to me. It is pricey also. I was hoping there were a few on this group that might have one to speak to its reliability since I haven't seen much on it. +P isn't a big issue to me as a gun that small would be a beast with that type of ammo. A good 147gr Federal Hydra-Shok would probably be great.

    My understanding is that the recoil spring must be changed every few hundred rounds - I think it comes with an extra one for this reason.

    The slide does not lock open when empty, and the mag release is on the heel of the grip (going off of memory here, based on the last time I checked the specs).

    Personally, I find that the Smartcarry holster eliminates the need for pocket pistols. I'd rather carry a more capable and robust gun than can typically fit in a pocket. YMMV.
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    Not a fun gun to shoot, IF you can afford to buy one...they're not cheap.

    Heel magazine release similar to a davis STRIKE ONE
    Owners manual says to replace the recoil spring every 200 rounds STRIKE TWO
    Can't find the price or a place that sales them STRIKE THREE

    I would trust anything from SCCY then something from Rohrbaugh, to much hype it seems and not enough actual facts or real info out there on them.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    I have a Rohrbaugh R9S Stealth. I have qualified with it for use as an on-duty LEO backup gun. It is also my primary summertime off-duty gun.

    With Winchester Silvertip, Winchester WWB, and Speer Gold Dot, it has been 100%. It doesn't seem to care for Remington though. I use Silvertips in it, because it groups significantly better and to POA with them, for me. It is capable of keeping all shots in the head region of a B27 target at 25 yards.

    Hey, I'd love to own one some day.
    Beautiful little firearm.

    And Yes, I AM aware of the argument...."Why would anybody pay $XXX for a firearm that is intended to be carried a lot and shot only a little?!?!?"

    And to that question...I can only answer: "If you have to ask....you probably wouldn't understand."

    ChrisP95Carry owns 2 of them and I'm certain carries one. He is on Hiatus right now though and so cannot weigh in.

    You can check the firearm out further at the Rohrbaugh Forum if anybody is interested.

    None in stock, but based on this "last price", I'll just dress around a bigger gun.
    Compared to a Kahr PM-9, it's:
    1/10" less in length
    3/10" less in height
    Around 2 oz. less in weight (can't determine if the weight listed for the R9 is with or w/o magazine)
    Needs a new recoil spring after each 200 rounds (per owner's manual)
    Sells for approx. $468.00 more based on the R9 last price (link above) and the PM-9 last price.

    Out of my league.

    PM9 and save some cash seems like the better choice. Just MO.

    I had R9s while back....It is a nice looking piece. Unfortunately, it is a very picky eater. I tried to qualify for on and off duty carry with my dept., it jammed on me a few times....Also it is no fun to shoot it....
    so I just gave it up and sold it to a gunsmith. It should was a nice gun to show off....

    For me, an EDC piece should be 100% reliable and able to eat up anything I feed it, especially for the price I paid for on the R9s. Oh well, maybe it is just my luck......perhaps, the new ones got better. However, I think there are so many "better" EDC choices.

    Just my 2 cents........................

    For the small difference in price with the PM9 and huge difference in COST I will take the PM9 which I have been very happy with, has fired 4 different 9mm rounds without any problems, and is not difficult to shoot at all.

    It looks nice but I spent my big dough on the smaller Seecamp .380 and a Del Fatti PH-3. I also have a PM9 though.
