    well you could always invite a cop friend and ask him to bring along his service pistol ( G-L-O-C-K ) and use his duty belt and holster!

    Oops, I stand corrected; both the RedHawks mentioned are “regular” RedHawks - not Super RedHawks.

    With over 200 million firearms in private possession, in addition to a collective ammo round count of over a trillion rounds, it should be obvious that we in the firearm community and culture are NOT the problem!

    Most stereotypes come from how you treated the last person who didn't know you.

    My bad! Sorry about that, daytonaredeye! That was skewed from my experience with the standard Redhawks with their single spring that accomplishes hammer function as well as trigger return. SA locktimes aren't the fastest, but their DAs are pretty nice if you need them. In this particular case I guess I got affixed on the DA, where I should have included both versions, since the Super has the same lockwork as the GP100.
