    Got a call from my fun dealer and went to pick her up at lunch. Below is a crappy cellphone pic. If I have time after work I will go run a box of ammo through her and take some better pics.

    Initial Impressions:
    1. I like the Bear Cote.
    2. Very nice trigger and the gun has about 2K rounds through it. It is very smooth now.
    3. The rear of the slide is not blended very well and the slide actually has some side-to-side play. This is unusual for Les Baer in my experience.
    4. I like the balance a lot and it actually feels less heavy than my Series I Kimber Compact.
    5. I am undecided about the MMC rear sight. Ill reserve judgement until I shoot with it some under time.
    6. I like the grips. Ahrends I think?

    Congrats. I owned one of these awhile back. Another one of those times I wish I could get a "Do Over".

    Congrats on the new Baer! Nice looking unit. I just picked up a 'slightly used' Stinger and gave it it's first test drive today at the gravel pit. Think I've ruined myself about going back to the Kimbers ever again!

    Have fun with the new unit and don't break the bank feeding the thing.:supergrin:

    That is not flash glare my friend. That is holy light emanating from an instrument of righteous justice.
