The Striker has a nasty habit of blowing out the back of the firearm and into the face, many times the eye of the person shooting it because you have your face behind it when it blows out.

I would honestly consider something else....

Not all of them will do this but it is a well know thing. If you do happen to take it apart, make sure you put it back together exactly as it comes apart and when you shoot it next make sure you hold it away from your face and that no one is standing behind it when you press the trigger for a few rounds.

Again, I would honestly consider taking it down for a $$ trade at your local Police Dept next time they hold one and use the money you do get for it to Purchase something else. With all the new 380's out there you can get into a very good shooting and safe pistol for a very low price.

No sir, he fell into that bullet... Never argue with a stupid person. They'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience!!

Colt has come out with it again with some upgrades and it is supposed to be very nice. I should be handling one in the next couple of months.

Lama made a micro 1911 which looks exactly like a scaled down version of the 1911... I've wanted one of those for years and will get one in time.
