My name is Bob and I'm new here to the forum and the C9. I'm from the mid Michigan area and retired. This is my first handgun purchase. I've had about it about a month and recently put about 35 rounds through it. No complaints, but it needs to be shot more. Looking forward to meeting you guys and learning more about this great gun.

Howdy Bob, glad to have ya here. I had a c9 for a short time but it was flawless for the 200 rounds I put through it.

Feel free to jump in anywhere and put in your 2 pennies, even if it's not on topic.

Thanks for all the welcomes. This is not my first gun. In addition to the c9, I also have a mosin nagant 91/30, 2 enfields, a couple of single shot Remington 22s from the 1930s and a 410.
I'm trying to assemble an eclectic collection of firearms to research, shoot, learn, and if course enjoy. I plan on asking lots of questions especially on how to use this forum as well as gaining gun knowledge.

How's the C9 working? Mine was OK right from the box years ago.

Good to see you here!

Ex_Isp,

Just returned from range. I put 60+ rounds thru the gun without a hiccup. The more I shoot it the better I like it. I also purchased the 10 round magazine for a better grip and I think it's only gonna get better.
