Cool down period SR9

I took my SR9 to the range after work and put 200 rounds through it. The only breaks it got was the time it took me to reload the magazines. It was warm for sure but I didnt find it to be hot. Should I let the gun cool down longer than it takes me to load the magazines? If so, how long?

Side note... finally getting the aiming down with the sights compared to my P95. Im finding that with my P95 I need the front sight to be level with the back sights. With my SR9 I find that the front sight needs to be slightly higher than my back sights and it will hit exactly where I am aiming and vice versa with the P95.

Nah, shouldn't need a cool down period. Not like you're doing something like this:

Glad you're enjoying your SR. Like the guys said, you're fine. Doesn't hurt to cool it further though.

Your fine, like has been said. I like to switch between guns during the range session. That way none of them get to warm. Only reason being is I don't like putting s blazing hot revolver back in a case.
