    I recently purchased a MDE for summer carry. After many years of having just about everything from full size 1911's to subcompact cz 9mm's and everything in between I have concluded that having a big uncomfortable gun for concealed carry sucks. I chose the MDE over a Ruger LCP for a number of reasons. Mostly because of the additional weight to help tame the recoil. It also feels a bit bigger in the hand but still truly sub compact.

    My initial range trip included 100 rounds fired almost non stop. I mostly shot at clays on the ground at different distances. At 7 to 10 yards it was very accurate. At 20 to 30 yards are a different story. Very hard to hit clays. I did have one failure to feed at about round seventy but since this is a break in period I will let it slide. I then took the gun home disassembled it and gave it a good cleaning.

    The next trip I put another 100 rounds through it with no FTF or FTE. I took some zombie targets with me and did some fast shoot head and handicap shots at 21 feet. Since these targets are 50% of the size of a human I was happy with the accuracy. It would be like shooting the zombies at twice the distance. Five out of six head shots connected. The leg/handicap shots were harder with only one out of seven connecting. This was my fault as I was a bit tired after shooting for a couple of hours.

    I am very satisfied with the quality and short range accuracy of this gun. It is also very concealable. I opted for the blued version vs the nickel finish. I don't think a shiny pimped finish has any place on a carry gun(although the nickel finish is nice to look at). Keep in mind that these guns have quite a bit of kick to them and they will make your hand sore if you shoot more then 25 rounds at a time. I was using American Eagle 95 grain FMJ's. One thing I noticed is that I did have a bit of burnt gun powder blow back towards the face when firing. I only had this ammo to test with so I can not conclude if it was the ammo or the gun. I would wear eye protection when shooting. All in all I am happy with the gun.

    Nice shooting. That is a funky little pistol there. It looks like it hardly has a barrel.

    I could see how carrying that would be a breeze. :cool:

    I have a Micro Eagle for summer carry also. Used it all last summer. Very easy to conceal. I have 500+ rds thru it with no problems.
