I did shoot few rounds (just for test) approx. 20 years ago but 9mm Largo was hard to find (only in neighboor Austria) and very expensive (1.3$ per round) so the rest of ammo supply was left for an emergency only.
In the mean time I bought several other weapons in other cheaper and available calibers so this old beauty remains in sef, cleaned and oiled once a year.
