    Best pistol I’ve ever owned or shot. I have one duo-tone in 9mm & a black 40cal w/ extra 357 barrel. Pros: eats any and all ammo, accurate, dependable. Con: the grip is a little fat. I may try to convert one to the enhanced grip & see how that goes. It may allow me to give it the 10th star! The only other pistols I feel that come close are H&K 30 or 2000SK.
