    Sweet! Congrats!
    A Leejack original: Socialism is the layover on the flight from freedom to communism. Democratic socialism (think Bernie & Ocasio-Cortez) is disguising that pig with lipstick to sell the tickets. I hope all those who subscribe to this democratic socialism reap the bennies that they sowed, just leave me and mine alone!.......

    Go Spurs Go!

    Thanks. Took it to the range yesterday, but only put i cylinder full down range. At 7 yards, it was hitting dead center POA, but was 2.5" low. I didn't have any tools with me, so I couldn't adjust sight elevation. Will do that next time. I will say, I was impressed with the trigger in both SA and DA. Smooth and not too heavy at all. This is NOTHING like the Taurus M94 I had a few years ago.

    Nice to hear.

    Thanks for the review.

    Congrats on a great find. I have two of these one in the 6" and one in the 4". The older of the two has a rounded trigger, much more comfortable to use in DA. Both are really good in SA too.
    When I compare them to my Smiths or Rugers they aren't made quite as well, but have a better trigger in DA than either of the more expensive brands. They a great bargain when they first came out. I think list on these was under $300.00. They are getting harder and harder to find.

    When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."
