I do indeed have a Shadow version, thanks Lewis. It’s brilliant and i’d recommend getting one. The hop up hasn’t given me any trouble, though I do plan on upgrading it soon.
The paint on it is thin and wears easily, but everything else is built like a rock. I’m not bothered by huge realism, so don’t care in the slightest about the paint, I’ll just respray if it gets tooooooo bad. It’s worth noting almost any pistol will suffer paint damage from holstering or slide cycling.
Its a very heavy slide, so does struggle with green gas, but stronger gas or my personal favourite CO2 gives it the kick it needs. This is a very important factor for me.
I don’t know much about the p09, but I do know I’m a better shot than a friend of mine who owns one
To conclude, it’s a brilliant gun now I have it set the way I like it, however there are definitely models out there such as the glocks and hicapas that work just as well.
At the end of the day, it’s going to be yours and you should pick the one you like. Any issues you may have can usually be fixed up pretty easily by anyone that knows what they’re doing.
Bit of a scattered text spam, apologies - I finished my last uni exam of the year today and am a little worse for wear.
