Congrats Backup! The Boberg looks like a great gun. I love the magazine-feed engineering. I'm not sold on it yet, but I LOVE it. It's one of those new-old ideas. Love it!
Your observations are invaluable.
I carry my R9S daily as a back up, with my G26 doing off-duty chores.
-Frankly, I'm beginning to wonder if I just shouldn't carry the R9S all the time. I carry our duty ammo in it, and we have had reasonable success with it. -As much as anyone could reasonably expect from a handgun.
9mm is, as far as I know, not a barrell-length-sensitive caliber. What the length of barrell gives you is sight radius (which is
effectively important) but means little to the effectiveness of the round. I have experienced no issues in K-5'ing and head-shooting my targets with my R9S.
The R9S is so easy to carry, and sacrifices nothing in caliber effectiveness, that I'm thinking I may sideline the G26 for a while. I was intrigued by the Boberg before. I am no longer.
