One piece of advice. I know the ammo situation right now is kind of tight but try and run as much ammo through that gun as possible before relying on it. Some new guns require a "break in" before they will work reliably. Others unfortunately come with defects from the factory which require some use to show up.
In normal circumstances, my rule of thumb is to run 200 rounds of FMJ through a semi auto and another 50 rounds of whichever JHP you chose to use before I consider using a pistol for SD. I know some people who insist on even more.
I can understand its hard to even lay you hands on that much ammo right now, but do try and test out your new gun the best you can.
