Check'n in. I have had my PF-9 for about 2 or 3 years now but have only put a few hundred rounds through it. For the size & weight it seems the best in it's class. I am far from being expert with it, have had trouble-free service from it. I bought it from a small dealer at a gun show at "new", & impressed with workmanship. This year I read some of the problems others were having, & decided to look deeper than field stripping, & give it a good cleaning & possibly polishing for smoother operation. I will have more to write in other posts. Thanks for reading, & accepting me into the group.
