I finally got one ! A "lightly used" Grey/Blued Gen2, which came with 2 pocket holsters, and 5 boxes of ammo. All for $225. Not too bad. I didn't have the patience to clean/lube it before heading off the the range.

Not one hiccough. As I expected, the sights were VERY hard to pick up, and the first magazine was all left of center. I finally got to where I was hitting all in the 2' bullseye at 7 yds (in slow fire). Very light recoil compared to my 380's, and non-existent compared to my carry 9mm's. At 5 yds, in rapid fire, all within a 3" spread. I know it is a point and shoot pistol, but I am used to bullseye shooting, and i think the Laserlyte side mount (which is on it's way here) will help alot.

Got home and cleaned it.....and cleaned it....and cleaned it.....WOW...I don't think the bore had ever been cleaned. The more I tried, the more gunk I removed. It sparkles now. And got out the dremmel tool and some flitz, and now the barrel & feed ramp gleam.

For the price....I am very happy. Even compared to my Kahr P380, this is tiny....and light. For a hammer fired pistol, the pull is light and consistent. Very easy to get a rhythm for rapid fire while staying on target. After 125 rounds, I have quite a bit of confidence that with some practice this will become a regular in the rotation. Thanks to all for your posts here.....I have read quite a bit before I bought.....and it has helped.

Got the laser in today's mail. The rear pin came out easily, but the front pin would not budge. Had to drill the plastic pin out. :mad: But, the metal pin/screws that came with the laser went in easily. Off to the range !!

I have a gen 1 in hard chrome I always carry it around the house. I shoot it every 6 months just to make sure she's still alive. The gen 1 has absolutely no sight picture at all but some how I can always group them pretty decent.

Strangely, I've always found my Gen1's easier to shoot than the Gen2 that I had. :confused:

Congrats on picking up a great little gun at a good price!
