    I have been waiting for this one for quite some time. I came home from practice today to find an e-mail from our friends over at Brightwater and I had to rush right over. I did a quick vid of the unboxing to show the gun and I do a little side by side comparison of it against my Kahr to give people a good idea of the size. It is nowhere near as bulky as some people were making it out to be online.

    I played with one for awhile last night. The mag release was pretty finicky. So was getting the magazine to lock into place. That might just be a break in issue, or maybe it was isolated to the one I was handling. Other than that it seemed like a nice little piece.
    The two I saw both had lasers also.

    So what happened with going "Old School"; back to revolvers? Don't tell me, you're a gun guy that rationalizes a reason the the myriad guns that he owns aren't up to the job so he must have the newest acquisition. I've never done that!:rollingeyes: :laugh:

    I saw that gun, even got my dirty mitts on it before you.:bluelaugh:

    Looks nice, but i'm not sure if I would choose it over the Kahr.

    Oh, this is not for EDC. This is a back up of sorts. It will be in my pack I carry to the gym. See, it is a totally reasonable purchase. :)
