I was in love with the calico 9mm carbine; Kelly grip, perfect balance, choice of two magazines: 50 or 100 rounds.
I found one online for next to nothing and ordered it. When it arrived at the dealer, holy crap! It was like holding the Mona Lisa.
I took it out the day after Christmas. Loaded up an entire box of ammunition and wound the magazine. It shot reasonably accurately for the few shots I made. I pushed the magazine spring release and heard the ammo fall into chaos.
I unloaded, then reloaded the magazine.
That is when I realized it was a magnificent weapon for a swat team member, but completely useless for the average McCool. No good for self defense when the magazine must be wound ten times before engaging the rifle. I sold it to a coworker for cost. I don't even miss it.
