I'm sorry to say it, but I'm bailing on my M9. I found the combination of light weight, heavy trigger, and DAO action required more skill than I can muster. On the other hand, my experiences with a Colt M1911A1 and a Kimber 1911 were extremely positive. A heavy frame, light trigger and SA is the easiest way for me to get reasonably tight groups. I expect to see my Para PX1445SR on Tuesday.
