My little .45 cannon



Love this thing. Holds 10 rounds and has a double action trigger. I've read a lot of positive reviews on it, the price was right so this is the new carry to take the place of the bulky Beretta 9000s.

Friend of mine who recently got his CHL did a lot of looking, and then finally settled on that exact pistol.

He has nothing but good to say about it, hope the same applies to you.

Remember, some people are alive simply because it is illegal to kill them.

Very good. What kind of ammunition do you use?

Light loads, 230 grain is no good beyond 7 yards. 185 grain are pretty good for most distances though.
I keep 165 gr Cor-Bon +p loads in it at home.

My wife has one in 9mm, and I absolutely HATE that trigger on those guns. I'm so used to a single action gun, that I can't shoot that thing worth a damn....

Well anymore it's whatever is on the shelf. lol
Thanks for the info. Pretty interesting chain of events required to field strip it too.

No problem man


A guy here at work has a KelTec PM9 ( i think) little 9mm pistol.

Keeps it at home, no interest in CHL. Anywho, when he got it, I took him to the range and helped him get familiar with it; basic gun safety, shooting basics, so on and so forth. I helped him be sure he could at least hit a COM shot if he had to.

The next day at work I showed him how to take it apart, I cleaned it for him, and then I showed him how to put it together. Out of curiousity, he then stripped it back down, and then attempted to put it back together. No Go.

Then my boss tried. Let me say here, that my boss and I are both very competent with firearms in general, and stripping and cleaning almost any pistol/rifle/shotgun is no challenge, including reassembly.

He couldn't get it back together either. I fiddled with it for a bit, and got it back together. Then we tried it again. Same results.

I still have no idea what I was doing different, but apparently I'm the only one here that can reassemble a field stripped KelTec PM9.

Is your Beretta 9000 a 9mm or 40 S&W? I'd be very interested in purchasing it if it's a 9mm if you'd be interested in selling. I used to have one a long time ago, but I sold it to a friend and have regretted it to this day.

Like this gun, was there any sort of trigger squeezing needed to get the slide off?

Not interested in selling right now. Even though it's bulky it's still fun to shoot. The dude who sold it to me was desperate to get rid of it. I got the gun (with maybe a hundred rounds through it), his cleaning kit, his gun bag with a nice carpet and two holsters for $200.
Other than the 92 upper I have for my 96 it's my only 9mm.

if you ever want to get rid of it, I've got cash in hand. I've been trying to find one locally forever.

Out of curiosity, what are FFL charges like in TX? Out here the going rate is about $50.

From my experiences the average is $30, but some will do
it for a whole lot less.
