    It costs 700 more than a Premier 2. Why?

    People like to show how much money they spent on something.

    A lot of Baers cost more than the PII.

    That's one of their entry level models.

    I own a Prowler III. It's a fabulous pistol, IMO. And I got it for an amazingly great deal, which always sweetens the perception :cool:

    Let's face it, "Prowler" sounds far more menacing.

    It sounds like a Nighthawk pistol, to be honest. :cool:

    I haven't seen too many. I think one would be cool without FCS and of course in hardchrome. :cool:

    The barrel with the blast waffer is why. I think they help quite a bit with recoil, especially in commander-sized guns.
