All the reasons for the choices of materials and close tolerances were made to create a pocket pistol that would deliver the most out of the smallest package. These same choices in the manufacture of the R9 are what drew us to the pistol, I don't let the collector side detract from the value of having the best in my pocket as my primary defense weapon. I regularly clean debris from my daily duties as a welder from the holster (Del Fatti PH3)and pistol..metal shavings, grinding dust pocket lint. And it never ceases to amaze me how the tight tolerances keep the grime out of the internals of this pistol. I really struggle to see the collector view when it comes to weather or not to own a pistol that cant get honest wear, don't get me wrong I understand collectables, but if you bought a R9 because you longed for a 9mm pocket pistol that does what no other 9mm can do, and you are only going to buy one...then carry it with confidence and love the wear.
