Recently, I’ve been testing out a bunch of different factory 9mm rounds to see if I could tell a difference between reliability, accuracy, and recoil. I found some interesting things, but above all, I found a specific 9mm round that I just had to share. It’s called the 9mm Chubbie and it’s manufactured by Stand 1 Armory.
Stand 1 Armory is an ammo manufacturer out of Texas. They specialize in really high quality, hand inspected ammunition. I saw on their website that they produced this unique -P 9mm ammunition and just had to give it a try. I was really curious to try it out for 2 reasons.
First, the ammunition is actually manufactured specifically for competition shooting and I shoot USPSA matches from time to time so I thought this could give me an excellent edge.
But second, and this is almost more important to me, I wanted a 9mm round that had low enough recoil (but was still reliable enough) that my fiance could shoot it with no problems. She is a great shooter but she has only been shooting a handful of times and anything bigger than her Ruger SR22 still make her a little uneasy. Beyond just the recoil, I wanted to ensure that this round would cycle my gun every single time because there is nothing worse for a new shooter than a gun consistently jamming up.
So, I took my fiance to the range the other day and we tested out this -P ammunition. She was extremely nervous starting out. Like, to the point of wanting to leave before even taking the first shot. But after her first magazine, she was seriously jumping up and down with joy. She was ecstatic to be back at the range and shooting a full size handgun. This ammo absolutely helped to calm her nerves and by the end, it was all I could do get her to leave the range.
We’re releasing the full video of our trip to the range in just a few days so make sure not to miss it. Tricia (my fiance) is going to go over how she felt about shooting the -P ammunition in comparison to shooting the regular 9mm. She’s also going to show you her groups on the targets with each style.
This will be a great video for you if you have someone who is still learning to shoot or if you yourself are still trying to work up the full recoil of certain guns. Once this video airs, I’ll also do a more in depth post on the video, the ammunition, and what I personally thought while shooting it.
