Very.very,hot weather carry
« on: July 08, 2018, 09:21:10 AM »
        To my southern brethren.
    Up here in northern Wisconsin we do experience some of that extremely hot and humid weather.Not to the extent that southern states have to endure.
         When we do get these stretches of high temps,I get out my R9 exclusively.Now I have been reading recently about 9mm.self defense rounds being available that are made for short barrel guns.I have always used Speer self defense rounds.
       2 questions-what kind of luck are you that have switched to those having, and with the Rohrbaugh do you carry with the max of 7 rounds in the gun?Or have you found that is too much pressure pushing up with the mag. spring to reliably chamber another round after firing that first of 6 rounds in the magazine?

Iím using the Federal 9mm HST 150gr Micro round which is supposed to be designed for short barreled 9mmís. To date itís had 80 rounds through it with no malfunctions.

And yes, I carry my R9S fully loaded. Six in the mag and one up the tube.
