So I picked up my M9A1 last week and have just been reading as much as I could about it. Read the manual the safety guide, and countless forum posts just to know what to expect. Today I finally had the chance to take it to the range and fire off 100 rounds. Here are my impressions: -Out of 100 rounds, I had one extraction kind of land on my head. I heard that that's somewhat normal for a Steyr, especially a new one. -I had three FTF. The mark on the primer was closer to the rim than the center on all three of them. What is the correct protocol when you pull the trigger and the bullet doesn't fire? The manual says to keep the gun pointed at the target for 30 seconds to a minute in case it discharges late, so I did. After that I pulled the slide back and the bullet ejected. Should I have done something else? What do I do with the failed bullet? -I seemed to be shooting low and to the right. I'm not a shooter by any means, and calling myself a beginning shooter would even be a stretch. I had the guy at the range fire it and he was shooting high to the left -- totally opposite to what I was shooting. Was that a case of the gun being more accurate than the shooters? After range time, I decided I wanted a Hogue Handall grip to help with shock absorption. I slid it on after wrestling with it a bit and I love it except for there being a little extra rubber on the back of the grip where the web of my hand rests. Is this normal for the Hogue Handall? I mean, it's just a little extra material creating a small space between the rubber grip and the actual gun's handle, and it depresses against the handle when I hold the gun, so should I get another grip or what? I can say this from my limited experience: I like it and shot more accurately with it than the XD9 and the recoil was negligible. Thanks in advance to anyone who can answer my questions that arose during my range time with the gun!
