It's not a crappy trigger, just a long trigger.

There are things I like and dislike about most guns. If I had to say, I don't care much for polymer framed pistols. Glock, XD, M&P, whatever. It has more to do with the look and feel, rather than how it works. I WOULD like to have a MR Baby Eagle. It does come in a steel frame, but I happen to really like the grip on the polymer one.

Without a doubt....I hate the Ruger LC9....I have shot it as well as know others who owned it and then sold it for the same reason. Trigger pull SUX. Scenario:

Person threatening your life with a gun/weapon (obviously NOT a Ruger LC9): Gimme all your money or I'll kill you....

Victim (carrying a Ruger LC9): ok...one second (pulls Ruger LC9 from holster and aims at bad guy)...can you give me about 10 seconds first...this Ruger LC 9 has a REALLY LONG trigger pull..is that ok? I'll shoot you in oh...10 seconds...almost got it...just about there...BAM! Bad guy kills you first. Thanx bad guy with a weapon threatening me.

Those guns really do suck butt...ugh!
This is just my opinion of course!

When purchasing my latest 9mm, I walked into the range and held the M&p, Glock and XD. Based on looks alone the XD wins, but when I grabbed it, I couldn't believe how uncomfortable it was in my hands. I hated the stock trigger and just couldn't get over the sharp edges of the square texture on the grip. I really thought I would hate the glock and choose the XD, but after 50 rounds through each weapon, the Gen 4 G19 won hands down with accuracy. If choosing a weapon solely based on looks, I would have chosen the XD, but I knew I needed to be comfortable and accurate. So I chose the Glock. There is a look and feel for everyone out there. I really don't get all the brand bashing. It's so stupid. Buy a gun YOU shoot well and you'll be happy. Why create tension between a fellow brother who appreciates the same hobby as you? Just a thought...

Ok so earlier I stated how disappointed I was with my Chiappa 1911 22 , well upon the advise from others in this great forum I got some cci mini mags. Not only did my Chiappa shoot flawlessly so did my erma. Kinda hate when have to buy special ammo just so a gun functions the way it should, but I guess it not all that bad. For just a few cents a round it turned two disappointments into pleasures.

They make a low tention spring that will allow you to shoot cheap stuff. Its made for sigs 1911 .22 buy it works with my chiappa ..also i think gsg makes one. Careful if you get one you only use low velocity ammo when the weaker spring is in. Itll screw everything up

Yes usually the only ammo I really try to stay away from I'd any white box Winchester any caliber.but that Chiappa would work with federal or Remington or the red box Winchester bulk. My mk22 with fly through them all no problem so will my high standard
