    Just picked it up this morning. Not going to have the time to shoot for a few days.
    Will get a detailed range report posted after the trip. So far I REALLY like it.
    Think Sig Sauer meets HK USP

    I'm busier than a one legged man is a azz whoopin' contest.
    I SO want to get to the range, but, I just can not make it for a few days.

    Overall it is VERY impressive, great ergonomics. With the flat back strap installed it actually feels
    a bit smaller than a G20/21sf. I actually like this grip BETTER than the HK USP.

    and speaking of the backwards round. in the class i took a few weekends back, we would run a short lap around the range and shoot at steel plates. this was done to get our heart rate up. the instructor would create a malfunction in the pistol while the person was running and he put the round in backwards.
