    I might pick one up this weekend. Already got the holster. It's like I've got the room painted and the crib set up...just need to bring the baby home. Okay...I'm addicted. I admit it.

    i aquired one several months ago. unfortunitly my buldging discs in my neck flared up nd the only gun i can use till they calm down is my beretta 84f. i have been able to get 200 rds through it here and there and so far it doesnt recoil that much. still looking for a holster. but so far. i am thinking of using it placews where the glock 26 is a scosh too large. also good for if i have to go see my sistger in the hamptons due to the stupid ny laws. as a retired police i carry under LEOSA but there is still the mag issue.
    i was planninig on using hornady critical defense. how has it worked for you

    Picked up mine today. I should have cleaned it first, but instead just shot it. Hornady CD 30 rds cycled fine. Over 200 rds of my reloads and I had 6 failures to extract. The guy who worked there said its not uncommon with that gun since they ship them dry.

    I noticed it was pretty absent of any lube. Still, I used a cotton polishing attachment with my dremel and some jeweler a rouge. I polished the chamber and feed ramp. Then I cycled several rounds and cases. Everything appeared to work fine.

    I love the feel and convenience of the gun. ImageUploadedByTapatalk 21360445012.896712.jpg

    I have had mine a few weeks now and have put 400+ rounds through it. A couple FTE's I can attribute to my practice ammo re-loading habbits. Does any one else think the grip angle is a little steep? I was thinking with the modular design they could angle it a little more 1911 or Glockish and it would point a little more naturally.. At least for me. I see Beretta sells the component grips in colors from pink to ODG. Maybe we could influence a slight angle change??

    I hope that GlockGA comes around to making 9mms this small and compact. The import restrictions prevents Glock from importing tiny single-stack 9mms. They are making guns in GA now, so maybe one day we'll see a single-stack 9mm.
