    15k rounds, just sounds like a good weekend! put almost 100k thru my loaded before I sold it to a buddy and it's still 'on the road' spitting lead with no problems. pretty accurate too!

    good reason this gun is still around

    Too bad NATO stuck us on 9mm. With ball rounds, .45 ACP is better.

    They didn't stick us with anything, the politically motivated panty wearers, (who are the direct descendants of the panty wearers that gave us the M16), gave us the M9. It was about money and PC or as I call it, the effeminization of our military fighting force.
