I think I got a pretty good deal...

I have been thinking about getting a pocket pistol and stumbled onto a used PM9 for $449. Rode over to the sporting goods store, looked it over and went ahead and bought it. It looks to be barely shot and has no holster wear. I want to run a couple hundred rounds through before I start carrying it but I think I did good. Should I try several types of ammo to make sure it is broken in? There is a gun shop with an indoor range I plan on going to next weekend that has 250 packs of +P Speer Gold Dots for $99 bucks and I am tempted to see how it handles those. Thoughts?

Congrats on your new gun. Of course you should try several brands of ammo to test which shoots best in the gun. The Gold Dot price is very good and I'd buy it, but you can find practice ammo cheaper. You'll find there are many holster options available for this very popular pistol. Enjoy the new PM9.

Try Hornady. It has a smaller diameter nose which can solve a lot of problems.

The problem with good Kahrs is that they usually don't get sold.

I need to figure out how to put pics up for sure! My wife and I went to the range and I ran 50 rounds wwb, 50 rounds umc, and 50 rounds magtech through the PM9 with no issues! Going to take it back out next weekend and try some defensive ammo through it.

You did good I think.

Now where are these 250 packs of GDHP?

Larry's Pistol and Pawn in Huntsville, Alabama. We live about 3 hours from Huntsville and planned on going up for the weekend but R.Lee Ermey was at a gun shop/range in Bham so we went there. Got to shoot but the wait to meet him was 3 hours+ and I just don't like standing in lines so we looked around after using the range and took off.

Cool - good carry gun. I have a CW9 and it's a winner. The ammo you mention has my attention. I'll check in. If he has a good supply he could do some good business here IMHO!!
