M9 - Newbie w/ range report

Hey guys!

I decided it was time to get some protection for my house (several miles from town and several minutes from police) and something I would enjoy firing at the range w/ friends. A buddy knew of a Steyr that he liked that a friend of his had sold to a pawn shop so I checked it out and fell in love. I got a M9 w/ maybe 200 rounds usage w/ three clips and a case for $300. The girlfriend wasn't too impressed to start, but she wants to go out to the range and I'll probably pick up a MkII for her to shoot out there when I can find one at a good price.

Required Range Report:
I put 200 rounds downrange the first night I got my M9, using the 115 gr. Wallyworld whitebox stuff, only $11 per 100 in KS. Wasn't exactly sure how to line up those crazy sights at first, but got the hang of it. I gained a lot of confidence on a head/torso shaped piece of steel at about 15 yds, hitting around 9/10 when I got the hang of it. 0 FTF, 0 FTE, about 10 empties to the to the bill of my cap (which I was ready for). I'm going back out today and I'll try to get 300-400 rounds to really get a feel for those sights.

Went to a Kansas City gun show last weekend looking for the bigger clips. No Steyr clips, no Steyr pistols. I really like having such a unique weapon in a world of Glocks and Barettas. This site has provided a ton of useful info, piece of mind that I bought the right gun, and I look forward to learning a lot more from all of you.

Peace (unless you come in my house uninvited)

Welcome to the Club and thanks for the range report.

The more you shoot your Steyr, the deeper in love you'll be.
Congrats on the M9 and I have been to our shows around town here in KC, MO and the mags I have found were $49 for 10rnd and $39 for the 14rnd. I sent madecove, a member here, a check to send me some 14rnd mags when they come in and with 5 or more, he ships them free.
Bought 3 14 rounders from $22 each
