    Is that Boberg XR9 out yet down there? This will be the overall smallest handgun available in Canada and I am really looking forward to getting my hands on one. I won't however get a chance until the US market is fulfilled, so get it over with already. :p

    Yeah, I looked it up. Hadn't heard about it yet. Looks to be an interesting design.....only time will tell if it will hold up.

    The idea for the feed mechanism is not new, just usually not applied to pistols. It will certainly be interesting to see if these are well built. I have a feeling this is a well designed piece, but the proof is how this shoots and lasts in the long run of course.

    Time will tell.....hopefully.

    after watching the animated video of how this works, i don't want one.

    it looks unique, i like the size, but i am betting the trigger is going to feel like crap. I doubt working on the gun is easy, and cleaning does not look like fun either. But i will wait until i see one in person and get to shoot one to make the final decision.

    I wish the guy all the success in the world. High quality (which is what it appears to be), new design, handguns are always a good thing.

    Even if he fails, which I hope he doesn't, his efforts will promote new thinking in others... another good thing. :winkkiss:

    I have one. The trigger is awesome, very nice double action. Accuracy is very good, and it groups well. I like it a lot, and so does my friend who tried it out.

    Could you describe the trigger? Smooth/gritty, even/uneven, Long/short pull? Trigger pull? Double strike capability?
    What did you receive with your firearm, holster, mags, tools, etc?
    What don't you like? Do you miss the laser?

    Trigger pull isn't overly long and is very smooth the entire way. Very nice. Has double strike capability. Gun just comes with two mags & a lock. That info is on the web site.

    How long were you on the Pre-Order list before you could purchase one Ocelot?
