    Everything looks great on this little pistol...... until you see the price at MSRP$849

    The xr9-s barrel is 3.35"
    The xr9-l barrel is 4.2"

    Maybe they will give me one if I do a review!!!

    Clever design! Must kick like a mule. But, the recoil spring wrapped around the barrel and the rearward barrel location should make it a rather controllable little handgun.

    Lot's of moving parts. I wonder about its reliability. can't wait for a review.

    Interesting new entry in the "carry-a-lot-fire-little" category.

    I'd love to try it, but for that much, I'll go buy a couple 380's and a bunch of ammo.

    Not sure I want to be a pioneer at that price :)

    Interesting how the magazine sits under the chamber and the bullets are extracted from the magazine and inserted into the chamber...

    Makes the mags look backwards :p

    The videos on the website look like the recoil isnt too bad. Don't know if its my thing but it is innovative and fulfills a need.

    I saw this before they announced the price. And it's not bad. $850 for a 8-round 9mm the size of a .380 (aside from width) that's brand new on the market is pretty decent.

    Considering Kahr P/PMs are about $650-$700, it's comparable.

    The thing doesn't seem to be getting past the birth pangs, the concept is brilliant, the newest idea in pistol design and with great innovation. I think the average person has no idea of how hard it is to get from an idea to a product.

    As for the gun itself, I have no use for a gun that expensive that uses plastic or aluminum for it's frame, this one has an aluminum alloy frame. I know a lot of people don't feel that way about aluminum so I'm hoping he will succeed, so that later he will offer an all stainless gun.

    What's with all modern guns being so freaking ugly? Doesn't anyone have an aesthetic eye anymore? I know it probably doesn't matter to a lot of people but my favorite guns are beautiful as well as functional.

    I don't think it's ugly at all.

    It's in the eye of the beholder. I was looking at a NIB Mauser P08 from the 70's and a guy walked by and said, "Yeah, that's pretty, but I like the looks of that!", He was pointing at a Taurus Judge. :D

    Some folks actually think a Glock is good looking, there's no accounting for taste.

    well, it might have a place in some people's armoury...... it looks a bit bigger than an LCP, a bit smaller than a full-sized Kahr. Probably pretty light.... which has its plus and minus sides. I LOVE the heft and balance of my Kahr MK 40, and the small size and featherweight of my LCP.... both have their designated place in MY life. Do I need something that close to the middle between them? I rather doubt it. I'll wait until I can play with one.

    The slide moves rearward and the bullet is extracted from the rear of the magazine and then the slide moves forward chambering the cartridge.

    For that kind of money I want more than a one year warranty! Really cool design though. Almost like a bullpup pistol.
