I just picked up my first 9mm pistol. I have mainly been shooting a ruger 22/45 semi-auto and many various rifles. I started my search for a pistol with the one thta I grew up shooting...a Glock 19. I loved that pistol, but was shopping one day and stumbled upon a pt809 for $300 new OTD. I couldn't pass up the deal and now have a love affair with this pistol. I bought it a few weeks ago and have put about 300 rounds through it. It shoots so well...and so fast once you get used to the trigger. I have had one light strike of a primer, but was able to simply double strike and keep on going(not something that happens with a Glock).

My first day out with the gun was great and I have attached some pictures of my best slow fire targer. This is 17 rounds at 7 yards. I was also pleasently surprised to be able to place double taps right next to each other with ease.

Welcome to the best forum going (imho).
I looked very seriously at the 809 before winding up with a PT 99. I wanted a range gun, so I went with the 99 and the 5" barrel. From your group, looks like the 809 would make a fine range gun.

Please enjoy this place, folks here are pretty friendly and quite respectful.
