Which, of course, came without the instruction manual because...reasons.

Is there anything to its PMCS that's different from every other DA or striker-fired pistol I've ever owned?

How well do they handle +p+ ammunition? I've got a case or three of the +p+ Win Ranger, but I think that's the only 9mm carry ammo in the house.

And where do I get a holster? Every other gun in my carry rotation rides in a JM Custom Kydex OWB or AIWB, but he doesn't seem to make holsters for these.

(Pics if my wife lets me have my car back so I can shoot it)

Well,  that seems clear enough. Time to hunt down some softer defensive ammo.

I'm pretty stoked. But still not sure what to do for a holster.

And while I'm thinking about it, is it meant to be carried decocked like a traditional DASA, or should I be thinking of it more like a striker- fired pistol that can be cocked by the trigger?

Meant to be carried de-cocked.  The upside is that it has a very good DA trigger that with even a small bit of familiarity can be shot quite well.

I had to use mine in a "social situation" and never even noticed the first DA pull.  

At the range you will find the single action trigger to be pretty outstanding for a striker fired pistol, and it has a very short reset.
It's a totally under rated firearm, IMHO, and my favorite polymer framed pistol, by a wide margin.  Does like to be properly lubed, and the trigger will get even better after a few hundred rounds of live fire.

Hope you grow to like it as much as I do mine.
