    New PT92

    I took delivery today of a NIB PT92 in SS w/ Brazilian Walnut grips and two 17 round magazines. Beautiful gun. Anxious to put some rounds through it to get the feel of a heavier, longer pistol than my PT709 Slim and Ruger LCP. I'm expecting the experience to be dramatically different.

    If you are like me...you will LOVE that pistol. Work out that shooting arm howver...that sucker is mucho heavier than what you are used to.

    Nah, still need those for CCWs. I don't open carry normally, but may have to strut this one -LOL.

    Yeah, even empty it's a heavyweight by comparison. Twice the empty weight and twice the magazine capacity over the 709 should make for an interesting learning curve.

    Here I have a PT92C that is a smidge smaller in size and weight and only loads 13. It is the gun that brought me here and it goes with me everywhere. I love shooting it.

    Put an 18 round MecGar magazine and the combined mass of the mag with rounds and the frame/slide really tames the 9mm recoil. By the time I fire 36 rounds I need a break!

    Aw, c'mon. Spring for a nice, basketweave stamped highride holster, polish it till it reflects starlight, and find a BBQ. That's what those things are for. At least mine is. Oh, it goes to the range to exercise the arm, just like a 1911 does. I tell my wife it is good therapy - I had my rotator cuffs shredded in a recent accident and need all the exercise I can get after the repairs. (What? How recent? Oh, 2006, but I've convinced her that therapy like that is a long process.)
