Rohrbaugh R9 (all variations) / Re: Ok... Lovin my Rohrbaugh(S)...
« Last post by JoshA on March 04, 2015, 11:46:44 PM »
Ok it's official. I can finally say I'm lovin my Rohrbaughs.

Why? Because Eric's on here now and I want to schmooze up? Nope.

Why? Because it's perfect and it never has not ever will give me an issue? Nope.

Why? Because everybody else loves their Rohrbaughs? Nope.

Because Duane told me to love it or He wouldn't allow me to pester you poor people any more? Yes...

Just kidding. No. Sorry, poor attempt at humor.

Well I just broke it out to show it off to my eleven year old boy and found myself going over the neat features of my carry piece that originally gave me some grief. I caught myself talking about it as if I cherished it. As if it was something special to me. As if it was something I wanted him to see the very fine qualities of, so when he gets older he will have an eye for quality and craftsmanship. An eye for something special and not just the ordinary. Hey nothing wrong with a Glock (I know they don't have a soul Richard 😜), but then their is the piece that someone poured their life's blood into to make as close to humanly perfect as possible. That would be the R9 IMO. Oh I think their are probably more reliable guns to run thousands of rounds with that offer less recoil, but that's not the intended purpose of the build.

Truth is that my post would have not been allowed to cast a shadow of negativity on the R9 if I didn't come to the dance just as they were handing things over to Remington. I would have been able to send it in for repairs and talk to Eric and been happy happy happy.

Hope I didn't scare anyone away with all the talk.

In the end I have a real appreciation for the fit and finish, size to weight to fire power ratio. I appreciate the reliability of it now that it's been serviced.

It's a pocketable defense system with some real class.

In final, I love my Rohrbaugh. I ended up buying 2 more and wouldn't mind adding a Farmie if the right situation presented itself. I guess that says it all right there.

Thanks for all the help along the way getting me to this point. I hope the small band of R9 owners remains as classy as they are now. You are some good fellows to have acquaintance with. I even like old Bob. What happened to old Bob anyway? Oh well.

Signing off on this post,

JoshA

Every time, as an Army prosecutor in Germany back in the early '60s, that I saw a rapist or child molester off on his way to Leavenworth for a prolonged period of years I would take a degree of additional satisfaction in contemplating the reception he would inevitably receive in the prison's general population.

GTF:

True wealth is not measured in material things but in one's state of mind and overall philosophy, including an appreciation of art when it is manifested as an exquisite combination of form and function.  You have decided to own an R9.  I do not know you personally, but that single decision sets you apart as one likely to be quite "wealthy" in many ways.

Welcome to the Forum.

Maybe Remington would like to be an advertiser---why not?

On a smaller scale Williams Gun Sight may also be a candidate.

Here is some of that genius that Richard was speaking of IMO.

I feel that even if we have to continue to subsidize it (I personally have not to date) for a year with the right types of improvements (mild) and participation I would not doubt that some advertisers would be interested in ponying up and the two the Tracker mentioned are great IMO.

Perhaps wolf springs would be another?

Are there any others that sell parts and pieces for the R9?

How about VZ again? Hopefully the Remington9 will at least still fit the same grip panels making the compatible VZ's a profitable venture to be made still.

Same with Recluse.

I just joined this group.  I bought an R9 in May 2007.  I 've never had a problem with the gun.  I know I can speak for all of us to say thank you for making the smallest best 9mm on the market.  Whoever saw this gun of mine thought I was the luckiest person around for having it.  While I'm not wealthy,  people have made me feel wealthy telling me they just couldn't afford one,  and making me feel special that I had one.   I've never had the best or most expensive of anything, except this gun.   Long live the Rohrbaugh line.

Both good ideas. While the number of page hits may not get advertisers excited I suspect the demographics of this forum are not typical of other forums and other premium brands may be interested.

Other companies like Frog Lube (or other cleaning accessories) or even Boberg may be interested in advertising with you.
