No!!
    I've heard that at other stores and think it's ridiculous. I'd have asked, "What are you hiding? Do you already know it's flawed?" The guy sounds like a jerk, too.

No!! Well this evening I put 150+ rounds through it. The last seven were Hornady Critical Defense in the magazine I intend to carry. It was absolutely flawless. I'll clean it tonight and carry it tomorrow.
    The price was nice enough that I would have taken the chance, but after I found it functioned well I think I would have gone back to that guy and said something like I just wanted you to know that the PM9 shot fantastic. Oh also just so you know I would have paid another $100 for it if you would have let me take it down and look at it. Oh well, your loss, my gain. But then I like to be a butt sometimes.

    Weve got got some LGS around here like that and I will visit them, but the place I frequent most will let you do pretty much whatever if your planning to buy. He gets most all my business even though he may charge a bit more.
    The only thing better than having all the guns and ammo you'd ever need would be being able to shoot it all off the back porch.

    Want to see what will be the end of our country as we know it???

    There are two local shops that I frequent often. Both, if they know you ( and know you are a "gun guy"), will let you field strip used guns. They don't just let anyone do it. There have been incidents where customers damaged 1911's with the infamous idiot scratch, did not know how to reassemble etc...
    But....they will field strip and let you look at the pieces, even if you are a "new" customer. I don't think I would do much business with an outfit like the OP dealt with.

    They didn't know me from Adam. But all's well that ends well.

    I just realized - the person who truly got screwed was the poor shlub who accepted $135 in trade for a perfectly good PM9 in the first place.

    That's what happens when you get a hare up your donkey to buy the newest firearm to grace the cover of the monthly shooting magazines.

    That, and the gun store doesn't know what you have. They probably thought it was a CM9, looked up the used price, and divided by two.

    Kind of like my hero, Hoppy and Topper. Did you know that when Mulford first created the character of Hopalong Cassidy he only had one leg. Hence the nickname. While Hoppy and I each only have one leg, he has 10 fingers to my 4 3/4.
