I need motivation...

...I have 3 9mm now that I sold my Ruger LC9. I need someone to motivate me on shooting my nines. Ive only been shooting pistols for a year and a half now. I know it's cheaper but quite frankly I find shooting them boring.

Here's my opinion- if you don't like them, send them to me and I'll be happy to take them off your hands.

I think 9mm is the perfect carry caliber for me. I find it easy to shoot, plenty of ammo in my gun, and, truth be told, there is no real difference between 9mm, .40, and .45 in self defense situations. Shot placement is what will count, and familiarity with the firearm.

I shoot all my different calibers. I have fun with all of them.

I practice with my 9mm. That's my carry caliber. The other stuff I shoot for fun.

Shoot what you like, and have fun. Shooting is supposed to be fun, after all. As long as you are proficient with your carry gun, shoot whatever. .22 is fun. 50S&W is fun too. It just depends what I feel like shooting. And cleaning.

My carry is a G30S. So I go to shooting it first. I will occasionally carry my SR9C. I think I need to shoot my nines first.

Motivation must come from within yourself.
As the old saying goes...

Or as I once saw on a kitchen apron-

You can lead a horticulture, but you can't make her think.

How about a reality check?

You can lead a horse to water; if you can make him float on his back, now THAT'S doing something!!!!
