Great gun if you can find the ammo and aren't using it for home defense within city limits. Hardly any recoil and a fine piece of hardware

I have one too and am thinking of selling mine (to fund another project of mine not because of any problems with the gun)....
The demand for them seems to be rather high (and the supply of them low).

Youre correct there are some people that don't have a tight grasp on reality, that would blame the gun.
I know someone who calls guns "accomplices to murder"

On an unrelated note, do they make a MA compliant version?

I use to think it could possibly be my favorite semi auto (large mag capacity, great round, and reputable company), but I read some reviews that said it sucked and the cartridge had almost the same (or less) ballistics than a 9mm (which I call BS on). I also heard it was next to useless without the military AP ammo, but I think it neat and has its niche. Really wish I had the opportunity to shoot one.

Ummm.. The @@@@@ at Fort Hood had no issues with the lethality. Read about all the soldiers he killed with one of you doubt that.

The weapon is really nice.

Ammo was ~ $21.50/box of 50 last time I bought it. not as costly as premium .45 ($20 /box of 25.)

If you like it, buy it!

It's a little different to reload than straight wall pistol cases, but no worse than any bottleneck rifle cartridge.

I like it so I bought it, ammo is a pain to find for a reasonable price. Im slowly collecting my supply for now.
