Ok, something I didn't think about until now is what type of action the PS90 is considered having. Is there a decocker? Is it DAO or SAO? How do you all store yours if you use it for self defense (i.e. 1 in the tube, or with an empty breech so you have to rack it like a shotgun before using it)?

Maybe I should have my gun dealer buddy mail me my owner's manual from the States... unless anyone has a pdf copy. *crosses fingers*

It is a direct blow back design. The barrel rotates a little and moves forward and backwards slightly to allow a tiny delay after ignition. There is also an anti-bounce weight on the bolt.

I keep the magazine loaded but nothing in the chamber. It is very easy and quick to chamber a round when needed. :?

See, I keep the mag loaded at 40 rounds (to not compress the spring all the way). And, I have 1 in the chanber, with the safety on.

Similar here.

  • Mag loaded at 30 rounds in weapon (Less stress on spring for compression)
  • Emply chanber
  • safety on (As always)
  • Carry bag with 3 more mags of 30
  • Blackhawk tactical sling handy in bag but not on weapon.
  • Weapon zipped up in bag as shown (not really handy that way, but oh-well)

Does it have a sensitive spring or something? I have heard to load your mags down, and then I have heard a couple less than maximum capacity.

Is it just personal preference?

I know the PS90 has its weird special mag, just wondering if it is more sensitive being plastic..and just weird looking in general..

People have their preferences about loading the mags to full for long periods of time.

I personally keep my 1 loaded mag at 40 rounds. SOme keep it at 50 - some keep it at 30.

Just like I underload my long-term loaded pistol mags by 1 round...
