PM9 Magazine gap and hold

Hey guys, I took my new PM 9 out to shoot yestrday and have a couple of questions. It appears that the magazine when inserted has a gap between the fram and the bottom of the magazine plate and I ended up with a blood blister on my pinky finger from it being pinched by the magazin - Is this normal?

Also, how do you hold your gun as I find that my thumb always wants to ride on the slide release causing the skin on my thumb to get nicked and the slide not to lock back after the last round.

Re: PM9 Magazine gap and hold

My daughter told me that her pinkie was getting pinched by that gap when she tried out my PM9. BTW the 7 round magazines for my CW9 work just fine in my PM9, so if you get a couple of those you will not have that problem. As for thumb placement I use the locked thumb approach where the thumb of my left hand locks over my right hand thumb, thereby keeping it out of trouble. Kinda like I do with revolvers.
