    Jon, “stronger” ammo? Im not familiar with that term. Do you mean heavier?

    the pistol is designed to work with nato standard ammo so you should run 124 grain stuff to start off. Some of the 115 grain stuff might not cycle properly to start off. I shoot 500 rds of 124 to break in any pistol, after that they usually cycle anything

    Thanks for the tips about 124 vs 115 as I usually buy 115 for practice ammo.

    The gray looks super sleek in person, it's a sexy gun.

    Did you get the laser site installed when you bought it, or is that something you put on yourself?

    It's just a Lasermax Spartan I put on, it just mounts on the rail and takes a minute to install. I have a laser bullet system I used to align it for "across the room" HD type distances.

    From 1 VP9 nut to another, congrats !

    Just finished my Lazy Wolf C1 trigger install and while I was at it removed the groove. See you at the range.

    Just got back from my first range trip. I shot about 100 rounds of mixed 115 and 124, FMJ and JHP and some +P. It ran flawlessly.

    This is hands down the best pistol I've ever shot, I got a quarter sized group of 5 at 7 yards which is better than I've ever done with any pistol even after about 1,000 rounds.

    I just picked up one yesterday. It was slightly used. Took it to the range this morning and was disappointed. Many fail to feeds, with fail to ejects. It was like the slide was closing way too fast. I noticed sometimes that last round bolt hold open did not work. I was shooting Blazer 115 gn. I was thinking, after reading some comments, that maybe my hand (right, as I'm lefty) was rubbing the slide release. Now I have a good excuse to hit the range again to test out my grip. I have plenty of 124 gn, but I seriously believe it is an ammo issue. There was plenty of times I could go through a magazine without fail, and when it ejected, those shells went flying. The ammo has power. I think the spring is way too strong, and my hand must have been interfering with the slide. Meanwhile, my P30 was banging out 115 like crazy. I love the VP9 trigger (will take have that reset travel taken up though). I felt I could be darn tootin accurate with it - very happy. Good luck with yours.
