    Trigger guard certainly looks cramped.

    It's obviously a Keltec/Ruger rip. My wife and I held one at a local gun shop and were NOT impressed. Everything on it is squared off and it's extremely uncomfortable to hold - I'd hate to shoot it. I lived in Monroe for 5 years - I can't say I'd want anything built in Union County. The gun shop owner remarked if they'd lower the price $50-$75 then he could sell them. Right now, their price is too close to Keltec and Ruger - both proven performers in the pocket pistol market - for many people to take a chance on it.

    From what I understand, I.O. used to be importers only. Looks like they decided to try their hand at manufacturing.

    For my money, I'll pass on it.

    Thanks... Just curious. buds has them for $299.00 and I agree, that is too expensive. I just thought I'd open the vault and see what folks had to say. And obviously, very little.
