I've had my PM9 for around 4 years now. Bought one prior and sold it then returned due to the size. Anyway, I probably had put around 300 rounds through it over the years. Agree, not many, but my shooting options were limited. I started shooting heavily again after joining a range and after becoming pretty proficient at 50' with the gun over a couple months began a test. I've been carrying the revolver (66) and have now put down 650 rounds through the PM9 without a cleaning or a single hiccup. I run a mag or two of Gold Dots or Hi Power HP's through it at the end of each session. (about 50 to 70 rounds total each time) I cleaned really well tonight and will go back to every day carry. Just thought the performance was impressive and my shooting of this little thing has improved so much during this time and have really began to love the smooth double action trigger for the guns purposes.
