Agreed with my experience so far and I would carry them. I do like bumping my carry load up to 9+1 with a 10rd backup. Also the ETMs will allow me to completely disassemble and clean. The ones I got stock are welded on the bottom plate. Not sure how to thoroughly clean those yet. Do you have a method for that?I like ETMs but don't think for a second that there is anything wrong with stock DW mags, I've run 1,000's of rounds (albeit mostly in 38 super - but plenty in 9mm too) without any issues what so ever. My new favorite mags, NTW, are Ed Brown
If you already have an Uplula, a trick I use is stick the loading finger between the top round and the second round and push down on second round just like you do when you are loading. The top round will slide out in your hand. Doing it this way keeps the top round from nosediving into the front of the mag.They are a pain to unload. If I have to, I use the unloading nub on my Uplula.
