I purchased a Stoeger Cougar 8000 F in mid Feb. 2011. The most accurate semi-auto I ever shot. Reliable also. No screw ups yet. Seems like the pistol was molded to fit my hands. Can't say enough good things about it. Just as good as any semi-auto twice the price. In fact, I like it so well I am watching/bidding in an auction to get another just like it. Wouldn't want the first one to wear out.
