    Cool concept. Take my words with a grain but, from everything I have heard, they apparently have feeding issues and mag problems.

    I've been carrying one for the last six months. Ran 300 rounds through one the first day they came in (Dreadnaught Industries is a Boberg Arms dealer, by the way), got bored with reliability and accuracy, and decided to add it to my carry gun rotation.

    Ran another 200 rounds of Silvertips through it, and have been carrying it with that round.

    From reading the whiny bitch boy comments about the magazines in various forums and magazines, it seems on analysis that the whiny bitch boy's bitchy bitches are because the magazine doesn't have a follower. Well, ****, might as well throw the unreliable POS...wait, what, 500 rounds through two magazines and one gun without a single malfunction? Damn it.

    Burned 400 rounds of crappy Winchester White Box through a second gun, two more magazines. No malfunctions. Plate racks and Texas Stars get old with a short pistol with a fat ass front sight, but very functional. Not going to swap my long slide STI for it in competition, but it bounces through a plate rack faster than a Glock 26 and FAR faster than a PF9 or a Kahr K9...at least in my paws.

    The other bitchy bitch boy complaint is that they are ammo sensitive. Yep, says that right in the manual. They load backwards off the magazine and can pull uncrimped, or poorly crimped, bullets right out of the case. Pretty cool, actually. I set up some shitbox "can't run a press" loads as test and yep, hey presto, some rather...long...9mm. Fun.

    My normal reloads worked fine. I don't buy gun show reloads, so I have no idea what other people's crap ammo will do....but my crap ammo was OK. I still carry Silvertips.

    Anyway, I think these are neat little guns. Neat enough that I not only set up a dealer account but carry one. The thing I bitch about is the price...damn, these little bastards are expensive. And I suspect that is the real cause of bitchy bitch little bitch boy's bitching ;)

    Thanks for the comment.
    Looks like a really nice piece to me.
    What was OTD price on one?
    Extra mags available?
    Trigger is nice as they say?
