I actually ended up getting rid of my PF-9. I traded it in on a Ruger LCP, which I think works much better as a pocket pistol.

Took the PF-9 back to the range today. I have to say, after putting another hundred or so rounds through it, I'm not crazy about it. It may just be me, but I find it very uncomfortable to shoot,...

I can't speak to the reliability, since I've only put 50 rds through it so far. I did have 3 failure-to-fires, but I don't know if it was an ammo problem, or what. I was using Sellier & Beloit...

I picked up a PF-9 this past weekend. I took it to the range a couple of days ago, and I was a little surprised at how snappy it was. But, I guess I shouldn't have been surprised. It's very small...

Oh, duh. I see now that it's just a grip extension, and not an extended mag. Nice! I'll definitely be picking up a couple of those.

Tack, thanks for the tips. My XD is pretty much brand new, but I am definitely going to keep this in mind after it has seen some use.

Yeah, we're happy with our choice. She is very comfortable with the XD. She is able to field strip and clean it on her own. This may not seem like a big deal, but if you knew her.........;)

Gun-totin' Nancy-boys would be an excellent name for a rock band, don't ya think? :p

For the record, I ain't afraid of no recoil. That was never the question.

Ok, point taken. I didn't mention it in my orginal post, but I also have a Colt Gold Cup and a couple other .45's. I guess that was partly why I was considering hanging onto the Sig 229 in .40 S&W....

Which one should I try to keep? Why?

BTW...I don't...

When (if) the weather warms up, I hope to get out and play with mine and see what, if anything, I want to do with it.

I should get the new scope mount and scope in a day or two....

Mine came with a Ruger-supplied mount as well, but I've heard that it may be too short to allow it to work correctly with some scopes. I plan on buying an inexpensive B-Square mount from Midway,...
