Today I took my brother-in-law, Scotty, to the range to break in his Mossberg 500 and new Diamondback DB9 9mm. The Mossberg was, well… a Mossberg; it was flawless and he was rewarded with a nice sized shoulder bruise and ear-to-ear smile. I also put my shotgun through its paces.
The Diamondback was the star of the show today. I couldn’t get over how shootable the little 9mm was. Don’t get me wrong here, it’s snappy. But not unmanageable by any stretch of the imagination. For a Rule #1 gun, this fits the bill. I’ll need to find something to cover the trigger for pocket carry, but I think I’ve found a more powerful replacement for my NAA .22 Mag.
I would defiantly like to see a slide stop on the gun but that really is not necessary for its intended use. This is not a range gun, it is there to save your life… Nothing more.
Accuracy was just fine. Reliability was 100%. It is a true pocket 9 that I could trust.
