From everything I have read they are really hit or miss in the area of performance/reliability. Otherwise, they shoot well and feel great in the hand (other peoples opinions).

I have one ordered that should be in between Tuesday and Friday. When I get to the range I'll throw up a review.

they suck, we sold them in the store for awhile and had to seen every other one back for some sort of repair. The manufacture ended up taking them all back.

Very simply, there isn't one. The trigger is advertised as 5lbs, but many other reviewers have found it to be closer to 7lbs. That, in combination with the very long (but butter smooth) trigger pull, act as your safety. Don't put your finger on the trigger till your ready for business in other words.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
