    I love my firefly, at the time i got it (posted a range review a while back when i did, bee a while), it satisfied several needs, shoots good, was low cost, feels good in the hand, and due to its lower cost i dont mind hiding it in my truck for "emergency range time" (time when my wife drags me out to something she wants to do but doesn't expect me to stay so i drop her off find a local indoor and go shoot till she is done) that it also has a threaded barrel, so should i ever plan to do all the paperwork for a suppressor i can use it, and came with 2 magazines, will shoot any ammo i have asked it to, lots and lots of bulk, and i have never had a single issue with it, other then the trigger molding line in the middle of it was a bit sharp, but that was nothing a exacto knife and a few seconds couldn't, for the price i dont think i can be beat. Think i paid around $170 for it, retail it was $190, but where i bought it gave free range time with a purchase so that saved me $20 that day

    By the way, a stick on rubberized grip is available for it, as is a magazine capacity upgrades, here are some links you might find useful, note that the magazine capacity upgrade does not have last shot hold open.

    Thanks for the tips. I'm not going to go with the follower upgrade for the magazine that allows 4 more rounds. I actually bought another magazine for it, I tested out last weekend and it works great. As for the grip, at some point I am going for the Pachmayr grip glove, as of today.. I used some silicone "wraptor tape", around the pistol handle. Can withstand heat tolerances up to 500 degrees, it is a thin as electrical tape, but feels like rubber, and does not leave any residue on the gun, so can remove it later on if I want... it's pretty good at the moment: Name:  grip tape.jpg
