Default Anybody else break there DB9 9mm pistol?

Oops!, I did it again!
I broke another gun.
This time it's the trigger on my DB9, it's run flawlessly FOR ME until the other day when the trigger decided to just start flopping around and not reset.
Probably less than 500rds through it....

I have read a TON of forum posts of the DBs breaking at the slide rails/trigger reset/and from the frame shearing from use

Sold my DB to a dealer out of spite, prefer something more rock-solid such as the Lcp/Kahr/Sig 238

Leave the DBs and the kel tecs in the same bucket, they work for a while, then inevitbly poop-out

I was actually going to look at one, since everyone on this site seem to be in love with them. 500 rds?? I wouldn't care if they sent me a new one while they fixed it. I'll stick with my Glocks and Sig P230.

Here we go, the DB 380 was less than desirable, now this, I am sure some will come on here and tell you that you abused the gun or limp wristed it and that caused the problem. But if I want a gun, it will come from a gun company, not a boat company dabbling in guns, at least for 1 that could save my life. Good luck with the repair!

Please let us know what happens with the return to the mfg. I have read a lot on these pistols; and while I am not sure I have found tons of reports, I sure am interested in learning more!

Yeah - definitely limp wristing, or laser use is the culprit...

Mine has 600+ trouble-free rounds downrange - and I trust it as a back-up weapon everyday...

Yours must have been made on a Wednesday by Billy after he finished his stint at rehab.

I really like this gun too.. :-( why oh why will Glock not make a small single stack...a guy can dream can't he?

P-Law,
they are both made in Cocoa, Fl, is DB another name under Keltec an off shoot? ex employees? do you know?
According to google maps the two companies are 0.5 miles apart, basically on the same road.
Found on youtube a 400rd DB-9 "torture test" done below:

yeah they hired away a disgruntled employee and make them in their boat shed next to the boats they build, thye guy has a vendetta against Keltec and the CEO/Owner of DB is a real piece of work.

Plenty of reliable information here (good & bad) - rather than just internet sour grapes...
