PT809 back from Miami

Well, it took a while, but I got my PT809 back from Miami. I had decided that I was going to sell it to re-cover the costs of my PT92. After hearing it was at the dealer, I asked my wife if she would like to have the gun. She used to shoot with me when I was in the Navy with some friends and when she handled the gun while I had it in my possession, she liked it. I figured we could shoot together every now and again and it would make her more comfortable with the guns around the house.

She agreed and I picked the gun up from the dealer on Wednesday. Yesterday, we sat down and went over the gun and all it's parts. We put the small backstrap on the gun to make it fit her hand better and we did a field stripping and cleaned it up. Now we just need to go to the range and try it out along with my PT92.

I went to the gun show last weekend with the express intention of buying low cost ammo. They didn't have much there, but I did wind up getting 1,000 rounds to 9mm, 115grain ammo from PMC for $200. That is about the best you can do at the area gun shows around here. Winchester white box at Walmart is $22 for 100 rounds plus taxes, so we wound up saving about $30 for the ammo.

I found a great website while looking at videos of IDPA on youtube. I really like Steve and Rick over at . They've got a bunch of videos which break down IDPA and USPSA and also give some good basics on handguns. Check them out when you get a chance. I think you'll really like them.

Well, heading off to the range to try out the PT92, PT809, and get more acquainted with my M&P.
