    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    Have one on order that was promised in 4 weeks. Paid $725. Can you believe this one sold for $1025 on GB?

    Wow...if their going for that price when I receive mine...I will be selling not not shooting.

    I agree....one bad range report does not break the gun nor one good range report make the gun. Hopfully, your going get a lot of good ones and several bad ones, like anything else that's mechanical.

    Thanks for your report...OP...hope mine is as good.

    BTW, how much would you make a pair of grips for?

    very reasonable, depending on what type of material you wanted. ive got so much stuff i can make 'em out of. black and white ebony, african blackwood, quilted bubinga, 6 different kinds of cocobolo, zebra wood, g10, and i have about 15 different kinds of dymondwood on the way.

    Does the safety get hung up or make it harder to do a quick pocket draw? Was the safety easy enough to flip? I actually push my p3at against my body as I draw to make sure the holster stays put. The safety might change that if it got hung up. Sweet gun...Nice review
    Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it ......

    I am glad to see people rejuvenating some of JMB's other designs.

    Your grips look great!
    The gun resembles my Kahr. What do you think the trigger pull weight is set? Does the trigger travel a good bit before the click? Just curious.

    if i had to guess id say it is in the 4lb area. pre-travel on the trigger isnt too bad. i had a cw9, and i can tell that this gun is light years head in EVERY way.

    Great report and video. Love the grips! Just curious if you have shot or handled a LC9 and if so how you would compare/rate the two?
