    Went out to LOOK at guns today - trying to find a suitable carry weapon for my wife besides the somewhat wimpy .32 Beretta she's got.

    Wound up buying her a .380 FireStorm, but I digress....

    Of course while in the shop, I get to talking to the owner about my M9. He carries an M40, and loves it.

    Then he says the magic words:

    "I have an S9 in the back".

    Shit.

    The minute I held it in my hand, I knew it'd be going home with me. The weight reduction from the M is perfect. To me, it makes the gun feel more balanced. Hot damn, it's comfortable - I really think I like it better than the M.

    So now I'm the proud owner of both an M9 and S9! Hooray for me!

    Damnit, now I'm gonna have to break down and buy one. I was going to go for a HiPower, but I don't wanna miss out on the cheap S9's.

    You are the Devil.

    I have the M40 and I have no time to go out and shoot her :(

    But I think the S9 might just be the perfect compliment. Once I decide the M is "duty" ready, then an S would be perfect as an off duty gun

    I have both an M40 and an S40 and every time I take them to the range I come back liking the S a little bit more.

    Thats part of the reason I bought the carbine kit for my M40 ... because otherwise it might just become a safe queen 8O

    Well, I'll be damned if the M becomes a safe-dweller.

    At the very least, I can take 'er out and do the double-hand shooting thing like some movie star - only when shooting in the desert, of course; me thinks the range masters would disapprove....:).

    The more I hold the S, the more I like it. I don't have large hands, so the shortened butt actually feels better to me. The whole package just feels more natural. The S will definitely be my carry of choice, so long as it proves itself as reliable as my M. A few hundred rounds this weekend oughtta tell the tale.......

    It doesn't make any sense, but I have always shot my S series guns better then the fullsize. You might be suprised how great the S9 shoots.
