I have two small pistols that see CCW use, a 9mm Kahr PM9 and a .45ACP Springfield XD-S. Neither exhibit feeding or extraction issues regardless of the time spent on the range. I can shoot them one handed, support hand only, etc. and they don't have issues. Practice is not painful....it's very fun. Maybe I practice too much.
Maybe some folks don't practice enough.
While I am more accurate with the XD-S, I attribute that to the fact that the Kahr PM9 is DAO....resulting in a notable difference in the trigger styles. I don't spend as much time on it as I do my other pistols.
A typical target with my 15.9 ounce 9mm.
My mouse gun is the new NAA Sidewinder.22 Mag
