Went to my local range today and put 300 more rounds through my c9. Bring my total up to around 1,100 rounds! I used all WWB 115 gr. Fmj from wally-world and only encountered 2 or 3 issues within the first 300 due to the mag springs. :minigun: im soon happy I bought a HPFF for my first gun. After I got my sights dead on, I can now empty the mag on a 4" steel circle, hitting it every time :doublegun2: and btw ive only had it for a month..Damn ammo is expensive!

Look into reloading! We can help you there... aquire press, components, etc

Will lower you cost. Will you SAVE money? For most, it just allows them to shoot more for same price
Few actually save.

I build 50 quality defense rounds for a .40 (for example) for about 9 bucks. Those same kind
of rounds would cost you~$26 bucks for 20 at the store!

Haven't bought ammo for a long time so I'm not sure what 9mm sells for these days, but it IS
MUCH cheaper to reload!

Just ask and we will be glad to help you/point you in the right direction/make suggestions! ;)

HAPPY to see you enjoying your c9. Some suggested parts/mod for it are Mahan sights, Joey trigger
and a trigger job!

Sorry to see you go Dean. Never enough time and it makes

Yep, reloading is the only way to go! It's cheaper ammo and a hell of a lot of fun too!!

I'm over 4,000 rounds through my beloved 45 JHP... (-:

Ive looked into reloading but considering im still a noob to firearms I think its a little out of my league..for right now at least.but I am going to stop buying ammo at wall Mart and buy reloaded 9mms on the web.its fairly cheaper and I love plunking so thats the way too go for right now. And I already have hydro-dipped grips on the way as well as 2 more mags..next after that is Mahan sights and possibly a joey trigger! I think in another month ill have at least 2000 rounds through my c9... then its time to buy a 995ts, but ill have to find one with a bulletbutton. :( damn California. ..
