    What guns do you like but have 1 thing that drives you nuts?
    I start with the Beretta 92, beautiful looking gun and a great shooter but I wish they would have mounted the decocker on the frame like Taurus did with the PT 92

    My P229 SAS Gen. 1 in 357SIG will be perfect as soon as I can get my hands on the DAK-specific E2 grips....

    The damn CZ75B! It would be perfect if the front and back straps were checkered. I can tolerate its nasty trigger, but the grip's slipperiness drives me nut!

    I took the grips of my CZ75B and made a front checkered strap using skateboard tape. I cut tape so it would fold into openings in frame and put grips back on. It feels really nice.

    That's why I have the Taurus:supergrin:

    Mine would be the CZ 75 series. Put a thumb safety on it that I can hit reliably. A "Taurus style" decocker/safety would be nice, and while I'm at it, I don't need that much beavertail on a 9mm.

    I know about that tape. Have one on another pistol. I'm talking permanent traction here. Even not full ckeckerings, but just vertical ones like those on the PCR compact would help a great deal.

    Springfield XDS 9mm. The problem is it doesn't exist yet.

    Sig 938. Issue is the trigger is horrible. Also nobody has extra recoil springs which have to be replaced every 1500 rounds and no extra mags are available.

    I would be on cloud 9 if the M&P 9c & .40c grip was the same lenth as my G23 & 19.

    I would love a SA XDM 45 without that grip safety.

    I wish my Shield was available without the safety like the other Smith M&P's.

    The P210 Legend would be perfect if it were about 1" shorter and with a safety lever that is slightly more extended for quick flip down.

    I agree with this, about the browning hi-power. Hogue wrap-around grips help, but the backstrap is in bad need of stippling or checkering.

    The Diamondback 9 would be awesome if it didn't suck. Such a great size for a 9mm... Even if you are limited to 115gr standard pressure, you get quite a bit more punch than a .380 in a package just as small (or as near as makes no difference)

    Browning Hi-power.. hammer will fall to half-cocked when slide is released, instead of being fully cocked after magazine change. Highly annoying at best! Oh, round count is around 2700 and was made in 2010. Have had zero failures of any kind in that time. other than the hammer drop issue. Which it just started doing. VERY accurate pistol for sure. On its second season of IDPA & really hope I can figure out how to correct the problem before the next match..:dunno:

    I would see if you could get the rubber grips from the P-01 or the SP-01 to fit a normal 75B. Those things are grippy as all getout and fit your hand better than the stock 75 grips in my opinion.
