    Anyone owned one or shot one?

    I was reading a pretty favorable review of one that I found when I did a google search...

    I just trust a lot of the opinions on here for things I haven't touched...

    i just looked them up i would like to know as well
    the lifetime warranty is pretty cool but it could also mean they need to be worked on alot

    Reminds me a whole lot of a Kel-Tec, and they are also based out of Florida.

    Not a fan of a manual safety on a DAO trigger gun. Just my preference though.

    I've seen just as many good reviews as bad ones for this gun. Not really sure what to think. Without the support and history that Kel-Tec offers I'm shying away from it right now. But I'd like to change my mind...

    well according to the sccy forums there is alot of problems with the guns
    it seems it hates most ammo out there. the safety sometime engages during shooting. and it seems the frames tend to crack. they can be found for 160 bucks though so maybe you will get lucky and not have the problems alot of ppl did

    The safety problem seems fixable from the manufacturer. In my eyes, it's backwards. It needs to be in the UP position for "FIRE" and the DOWN position for "SAFE". That way, if you are firing the gun, you can't "accidentally" hit the safety. I'd rather turn the safety off by accident than turn it on, when my life depends on it. I've not been on their forums before, but I'm sure other people feel the same way. Just flip it and accidentally engaging the safety won't be a problem.
