That is the one from our deceased friend Steve Bedair of Kilgore in deep East Texas. It works like a charm.

yes sir. Time is flying. I bought my two R9's over ten years ago now. One Stealth model to carry, one regular model for a spare in case i ever had issues with the carry one. The spare is new in the case, never fired. Out of all my handguns, I think the R9 is the only one I would call a work of art. I guess along with the Seecamp.

I have since replaced it as my EDC with a PM9, since I am too lazy to clean the way I should after a few days at the range. I think the PM9 is more tolerant of being fouled up.

Its great that this site stays around for us owners of the original R9 to get info. I remember for awhile years back, i used to log on every day to see the latest things guys were doing with/to their R9's. Since I dont give mine too much attention in the past couple of years, I havent been around here. I got an email notification that a guy on the Seecamp forum asked a question about a Rohrbaugh, and he was referred here. I figured I would add my old screenshots of Steves site demonstrating that great plumbing piece he discovered.

Joe, like you I see a lot of folks on this forum that like the Seecamp.  I may have to investigate them further.  However, that .32 acp could be an issue.  Was looking at a surplus CZ last week in that caliber, decided I have enough different ones now as it is.  Heck, I got guns chambered in 4 different rimfire cartridges, from .22 short to 9mm rimfire, LOL.

yeah. i got the Seecamp .380.  Shooting it is like holding an M-80 firecracker in your hand. not fun to shoot, but it goes with you anywhere you go. even in a sock. maybe in a cigarette box, i never checked. Its like holding 14 ounces of dynamite in your hand, if the need should arise.

Carry a box of Band Aids with you at all times.
Having a gun in your hand is much more effective than having the entire police department on the phone!
