    I've never heard of this manufacturer...I'm guessing they're international?

    Boberg is in White Bear Lake, Minnesota. Relatively new company that just started shipping their pistols back in September 2011. This is their second model that will start shipping late January or early February 2013.

    Longtime lurker...finally got off my duff and joined...

    I spent a good month or two deciding on a concealed carry and after all of that work, it came down to the Boberg XR9-L and a Steyr S9-A1 and I eventually bought the Steyr but a few more overtime shifts will get me back on track for the Boberg as well. Nice shooting and great review and FWIW, the Steyr is like a swiss watch made of polymer. Real happy with that choice.

    I better check into that Steyr. That one wasn't on my radar.

    I thought long and hard about getting a XR9s, until the price went up.

    I am also leery of the pull-back feed design. There have been reports of cases being pulled off the bullet as the pistol tries to feed, resulting in a jam that is not easy to clear. There was a list of "approved" ammo on the Boberg website - not sure if that is still there.

    Really, I have just given up on the whole idea of a reliable and non-finicky 9mm pocket pistol. I have adjusted to the .38 LCR revolver for that role, and do not see that changing anytime soon.

    Still, the Boberg design is unique - certainly the most innovative gun to come out in a very long time. I wish them luck - just not for me.

    Having shot much more than my fair share of pockets 9's, I can say there are some good ones out there. To your point it's unfortunate that it is never a sure thing with any of them. Hard to beat the LCR for day to day reliability.
