    Read the manuel, an get ammo they recommend. You need to get to a range an try a couple of different manufacturers to see what feeds reliably in your weapon. I will recommend hornady critical defense or hornady custom these are known to feed in most weapons. Not familiar with your weapon just make sure its safe an accessible only to you. There are lots of holster options look at remora they fit multiple guns very inexpensive.

    Might be worth contacting High Noon holsters and see if any of their stocking item holsters will work. Much better deal than something from say, uncle Mikes.

    I didn't really know about this gun either.

    it has a fixed barrel so it should be decently accurate, so it has that going for it!
    armed with an entry level gun is better than unarmed wishing for a tank!
    job well done!!

    Welcome from SC.
    I have to admit I have never heard of a JA 9, but I found this, and you can let me know if I am way off base.

    My opinion,find ammo that feeds reliably,shoot at least 200 rounds with no jams,as soon as possible get a better gun

    JA 9?... Thats a Jennings... I had one when I was gang banging.. I'd carry it empty chamber full mag. Dont drop it on anything hard. I'd use a nylon tuck in the pants holster like an uncle mikes. Or maybe a fanny pack of some sort.

    thanks for all the info. ofcourse i am not planning on using this as a battle gun but for packing out in the woods and say a rather large putty tat comes along. whos to say that putty tat wont be either coming home or high tailing it out of there. I have a H&R 922 pistol and in the '30s they used to be called suicide specials. I plan on doing a fluff n buff asap. any suggested tools and products?

    I have a few "Ring of Fire" guns that have given me good service. One is a Raven 25 that Ive had since 1983. Back then I carried it a lot. Its never failed to cycle or fire with any ammo I fed it. When I could afford better guns I still kept the old ones because they gave me good service. Good luck with it, If it were me Id find a middle of the road load and enjoy it for what it is. DR

    From what I can find, this seems to be a straight blowback design, meaning that the breech does not lock closed. So, the only things holding it closed when the round goes off is the spring and the mass of the slide.

    With this in mind, I guess I would suggest sticking with middle-power loads as dangerranger mentions. Something like Federal HST standard-pressure (not +P) 124 gr or maybe 147 gr would be my first choice. Actually it would be for pretty much any 9mm.

    One of the drawbacks of the design is that it has to have a heavy slide, and at 30 oz this is a pretty heavy 9mm. But, I have carried a 30 oz auto in a $25 Remora inside-the-waistband holster successfully. It's not optimal, but with a good belt, it works.

    We had one of these (the JA-9) come in for disposal. Looked just like a Hi Point, an djust as heavy. I'm sure it's gonna do everything you want it to do. Just not my cup of tea.
    Hope it works for you when you really need it to work.
