Well, I succumed to my weakness (want guns I can't afford) yesterday. I plopped down the plastic and bought a Nighthawk Predator. I'd been looking at it, holdin it, caressing it, rackin the slide, and just generally admiring it every time I made it over to Cheaper Than Dirt in Ft. Worth. I'm anxious to try it out at the range, but it'll be a few weeks before I can get out there. I've got an interim holster I can use for it, but, as I was tellin Bumper last week, I've settled on getting a complete Tucker rig....belt, holster, and mag pouch....gonna have to wait on that little purchase for a while though...gotta pay the plastic down first.
She's a byute and I'll post a review after I've broke her in. Here's my pics.

very nice, congrats and welcome to the brotherhood.
Took the wife's Talon IV to the range today and had an absolute blast. I raced cars on the Speedvision World Cup and a properly set up M3 was such an amazing car that all you have to do is hodl on and you would win. This pistol is pretty much the same way. Just point it in the right direction and you will shoot amazingly.
Everytime I get to shoot this pistol it amazes me at its controllability and accuracy. The reset of the trigger is so minute that rapid fire drills are a breeze with this pistol.
