That is the proper way of voicing a dissenting opinion.

I was thinking about getting a 9 mm Conversion barrel for my EDC G27 to be able to plink at the range with it with my gun girlfriends who all shoot 9mm. I personally learned from the start on .40 cal (long story why) and so I am comfortable with it very well.

Maybe I should just buy a 9mm Nano or something to shoot on girl days at the range. I was intrigued with the whole conversion barrel idea though....

Have you ever see for yourself a case where someone was taken to court over a gun modification? Not "heard about it", but actually seen? I haven't. I haven't even heard of one.

I agree. Been watching the Zimmerman trial and haven't heard squat about the weapon. I can see how a skilled lawyer may attempt to make a case about preconceived intent, but I think it would be a stretch at best to gain "beyond reasonable doubt" based on trigger modification.

Agreed. Never heard a lawyer go after someone for putting performance parts on a car. It boils down to preference, not intent.

Zimmerman's gun was apparently a stock Kel-tec 9mm, carried in a proper holster ; so there isn't much the proscecution can use against him .
BTW - Has it occurred to anyone that when Zimmerman reached into his pocket, Martin may have thought he was pulling a knife and felt justified in launching a murderous attack with fists ?

Zimmerman was searching for his cell phone but Martin may have thought otherwise . There's still no cause to bring Zimmerman to trial but this theory may explain Martin's attack ....

Sending the original barrel and slide to Mag-na-Port in Michigan is a better way to go, if you find you need porting. The cuts are very small and offset from the sight line so as not to interfere with aiming. Some .45s benefit from Mag-na-Porting not so much in recoil reduction as in muzzle twist or flip. Saw a Para LDA that used to twist violently to the left tamed completely by Mag-na-Port vents. Muzzle rise was cut in half and it only went straight up - no more twisting.

First thing to do is shoot it and identify what improvements are necessary for you personally. There may be improvements that are a waste of money if it answers a problem that doesn't exist. Never make any more changes than absolutely necessary to a stock gun when it will be used for self-defense and may wind up in front of a jury.
