Nice pickup! Have the same in the LSS version. Tack driver and fun at the range when people back off the line With the muzzle break it kicks less than a 7 mag even when loaded hot. Look in to reloading for it with the way ammo is for it, even with reloads it's pretty pricey. Gets that way when you use 85-95 grains of powder per round.

Mine was right around 5 weeks before it shipped. I like it though.

Still waiting on my LTCH before I actually use it though.

I've had powder on order for almost 10 weeks now. Still nothing.

Finally saw a local shop was getting a shipment in today and got 8# worth. Can't wait for my brother to reload like crazy for me.

As did I, after using it just a couple hours I feel it was well worth the wait.

NOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooooo!

Had 6 mags on order for $20/ea....

Looks like I'll be stuck with just one factory mag and 2 plinker tactical 35 rounders for a while.

FYI, can't get the plinker mag to work in slide fire. Not sure why. It FEEDS them fine, and they go bang... I just can't find the "slidefire sweet spot" with it. Otherwise no complaints, it fed fine for the two mags I ran through it. All CCI tactical ammo, which is supposed to work good in 15-22s, but NOT good in the plinkers. still worked fine for me....

I bought a PJ pocket holster for my CM9 and absolutely love it. Stays in the pocket nice when the firearm is drawn and does what it's supposed to do.

Watch that trigger though if you bring any new shooters to the range with you. I let an inexperienced friend shoot it a few months ago and she managed to accidentally bump fire it. Sounded like it went full-auto for 3 rounds. Did some reading and found out that's not uncommon since it has such a short reset and light pull.

Nice pick up Pete, I love the way cz's shoot. I think that was the first gun I shot a one hole group with.


I picked up a M&P 9 this week. I'm loving the way this hing shoots and feels. I just wish the thumb safety model was available to Cali.

How's the ar market look like? I've stopped looking since December and I'm feeling like a light weight pencil barrel build in the immediate future.

Prices are dropping fast. I think I'm going to pick up my gun today since a lot of shops are getting regular stock in. I'll keep the AR until the next panic and sell it then.

Anyone looking for a XD9?

This thread is slowing down a little bit without spectrrr's participation.

Found myself some .40 S&W ammo over the weekend, at basically pre-hysteria prices. Hopefully not a one-time-only deal.
