    Thumbs up New EAA Witness

    I purchased an EAA Witness Compact 9mm today, took it straight to the range. It is one heck of a shooter!! I was pleasantly suprised, I ran 250 rds through her and no glitches. DA trigger pull is a little stiff, but the SA pull is really nice, aimed fire,full retention double taps, zipper, it performed them all very nicely. It is such a nice pistol in fact that I would like to find a good peice of gunleather for it, any suggestions? IWB tuckable prefered. Rex

    Congrats Rex! I have 2 Witnesses, both on my carry permit, and they are hard to beat. I couldn't choose from the several exceptional leather makers on this site, but any of them could do your new toy proud!

    Nice pistol. Can't go wrong with a Witness. I have one in 45.
    Been a great pistol, I still carry it sometimes.

    EAA stands for European American Armory, also known as Tanfoglio. I'm pretty picky about fit and finish. Fit is excellent, the finish is what they call a wonder finish (I think) and seems to be pretty tough. Overall it seems to be a really nice pistola! Rex

    I knew what the acronym stood for, just don't know much else. However, Tanfoglio does ring a bell. My neighbor has a Tanfoglio. I think it is the Force Compact.

    Nice find. Do they still make a 10mm? I passed on one several years ago and wished I'd grabbed it.

    Yep, they sure do, from what I understand, you can change calibers pretty easily also. How's the fishin' down there Jack?

    Nice piece! Thanks for sharing. The Witness is on my list, albeit behind several others.
