The profile, look, and curves of the gun and the magazines looks like a Shield rip-off... Guess that's the reason for the big billboard on the slide. Other than that, I like the ambi features, the optional safety, and all the other upgrades. If you do get one, let us know how it shoots.
Nice gimmick, but it does not beat going to the range and actually shooting a weapon. I can just see a new gun owner setting up soda cans or a paper target and using some Computer generated video game program and assume they are proficient at handling a firearm just by dry firing at it.
I have one and my particular model has been nothing but trouble. The customer support has been great. I bought mine in mid April and was unable to shoot any hollow points. The rounds get hung up on the lower lip of the feed ramp. I contacted Honor defense and one of the owners was in my area and stopped by. I showed him all the issues. My gun has been with them 3 different times, and is headed back to them. They have replaced the barrel a few times. Not sure what else they have done but it won't work. It does ok with FMJ but thats it and not why I bought the gun. They have been unable to fix the problem. My gun will not function at all with any Federal HST rounds. I even asked them to just replace the whole pistol and at this time they haven't agreed to do that. I am waiting from my UPS return ticket since last Wednesday. I am pretty frustrated at this time about the pistol. For the most part they have bent over backwards but it is time to replace every part of this pistol. The pistol is the chassis so they should just put my chassis in a new frame, slide and barrel and see what happens. This time I bought a box of Federal HST 147+P from targetsportsusa and sent them to them to try it. Right now its a paperweight. Your experience may vary and not be the same as mine
If I could still shoot a single stack small 9mm I'd sure want this one! Hand is trashed and I need a lot more gun to absorb the recoil now (or .380 for less recoil), but the video really is impressive. It would be worth the extra $ to me to support a vet owned and operated company.
