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!

Nice choice. My first was the GRP and it's been a beast. I took it through the Exec Protect course at Valhalla and even with their frangible rounds it ran like a champ and didn't suffer any hiccups. Great gun. Kudos!

When I got to the level to be able to afford one of these priced guns I did a lot of looking around. I really thought I was going a different route.

Then I met 3 of the founders at the SHOT show and got to talking to them. They only had about 4 models at the time (GRP, Talon, Predator and their uber edition I forget the name of). They were really passionate about one person building the gun from parts, not just assembling one part on the gun and then handing it off. They really had a level of love and enthusiasm for what they were doing that was contagious.

I put down a deposit on the GRP about two weeks later and haven't regretted it a day since. I love my GRP.

Well, except for the part where it got on the phone and called all his buddies and other Nighthawks started showing up while my bank account started plummeting.

Lol. Thats how this is going. Ive won two events with the 10mm so far. So...a .45 was obvious right...call my gf and tell her that too. Oh yea... The .22 is wonderful.
