Curious,
Visiting with my range company guy yesterday. Last weekend shooting it was hot in the range and fans from behind were really blowing and moving the paper targets back and forth. I notice the bullet holes were elongated thinking the wind blown angle of paper target to shooter was causing it. I mentioned this to range guy and he said the bullet from little guns (cm9) will start tumbling at 21 feet. Sounds logical. We talked of his K9 which doesn't because of the longer barrel. Interesting subject I hadn't thought of since a newbie. He carries K9 primary, CM9 back up. Now I'm thinking K9 and get stopped by the $850+ price. Ahhh just dreaming.

The paper was blowing...short barrels are as accurate as longer barrels, there just harder to shoot.

I agree, paper blowing..........at those distances I believe Toney is correct, long or short barrel isn't going to affect accuracy as much as shooter skill will...!!!

I wanted other opinions to see if they would agree with me. I'm glad you both do. I held my tongue when he said it. I would still like to have a K9 though. It really felt good in my hand, heavy but good feel. Every thing I want costs $800+. May have to trade a BDA 380 I have. I've been saving it and waiting to see if someone would come out with a 22 barrel for the M&P 9c.

I'll tell you I love my K40, its the same size as the K9, just chambered in 40s&w. It is on the heftier side being all steel. It has a good feeling in hand, it just feels right and the weight adds to that good feeling. Their steel guns are really well made and shoot great, with the weight helping to tame recoil. They are on the pricey side, but they will last a lifetime and I think they are worth it. Sometimes you just have to treat yourself right...........after all you deserve it.........don't you !!!!!! ;D

ron54, Yes I think I deserve it. But my conscious tells me even though I may want it I need to find a way to pay for it. You know....it's what our Gov doesn't have. Either one.
I'll be keeping my eyes open for a good used one.

I understand............have had to wheel & deal and decide what gun I favor least to sell or trade. That way i can fund the next purchase, for this cruel affliction we seem to have. I just don't know if its genetic and born with it, or an acquired expensive bad habit sort of thing !!!
