I picked up my new M9 (one of the Redmond, WA versions)as well as some Tula ammo (aluminum case) and some of my reloads from 1995. The gun is a great fit in my hand and it was quite pleasant to shoot. The Tula ammo didn't do well - 4 FTEs out of 50. The reloads, on the other hand, fed flawlessly. Some were loaded with 231 and some with Bullseye. I was shooting at hinged steel targets. I can see that I need a lot of practice.
