I think I paid like $250 for my black one. I just put about 50 rounds through mine this past Sunday. No
problems at all. For what it's designed to do it works wonderfully. Try shooting the thing from retention as fast as you can. It's amazing, very fast and at the distances you'd use it (3 yards or less) very accurate. Watch for flying brass though, mine kicks that stuff out right! lol
I've been using 95 gr Speer Lawman ammo for practice. Think I'll try Gold Dots or Silvertips for carry.
And I use a DiSanti Nemesis holster for it. $20 but stays in the pocket very well.
