Smile Pretty impressed....

Just ran the first 50 rounds through one of my recently purchased Micro 9's and not one problem. Used 25 rounds of Winchester 115 Gr JHP and 25 rounds of Herters aluminum cased 115 Gr JHP. Both fed perfectly.

That’s good to hear, I usually go 400-500 rounds including SD ammo before a gun will go into my carry rotation .

That's my goal, but the arthritis kinda dictates how many rounds I can handle at one time, especially right now just before a major winter storm.

I wouldn’t expect you to shoot 500 rounds in one secession even without arthritis. You want to enjoy your range time not suffer.
