It's true! The PPC 9 barrels wore out prematurely necessitating replacement. Lots of these barrels couldn't hold the 10 ring at 50 yards after 2000 rounds. I suspect the stainless steel was "soft."
I know of two Master shooters who abandoned their PPC9 9mm autos due to premature barrel wear-out.
Some turned to the superlative STI TargetMaster...
