can't argue with you on this gun! I'm up past a thousand rounds now and it shoots straighter and straighter, with zero problems. FTE stovepiped once on first day, sloppy limpwrist grip did that.. I practice with cheap ammo (MFS from Hungary, FMJ) and even so, I"ve had maybe two feed failures and one fire failure in all that time. I used those events for fast-clearing practice. Haven't shot a large amount of top grade ammo yet, just practicing, holding the good stuff for SD loads.
This gun has the slide release and the safety on both sides, which is the primary reason I bought it, since I shoot lefty. The decocker safety is great, as I can rack a load, decock it and carry it on safe with one in the chamber. I can't pull the trigger until I firmly drop the safety to fire that first round DA. It's about the safest config I can think of for carrying with chambered round. Chambered, but not cocked.
It's clunky metal, but the parts are solid and the whole is very efficient and smooth in operation. Cleaning yields no signs of actual wear on anything beyond the classic 'I can see it's been used' kind of sheen.
A totally reliable, nicely concealable (for me, big dave gun, holds 13+1, got a spare mag in the original gun box, all for $350 or so.... can't imagine a better 9mm experience for this kind of money, or any kind really.
