Yeah... .45 prices are just about enough to make me cry at the moment. I like 'em a lot, and I love the trigger and action on most .45s, but with modern hollow points and the higher capacity of 9mm, the only reason not to go with a 9 over a .45 is if you live in an area that limits ammo capacity. Suppose I could get one of those 1911s that fires 9mm, but that seems like cheating.

got one of these, and I fucking love it. I've put easily 1000 rounds through it (Not consecutively) and its never had a jam. Plus, its damned accurate, too. Cheap to shoot, great for beginners as well as practice.
and you got a wicked deal on it, too.

I haven't practiced taking this guy apart and putting it back together yet, but I'll be doing it a lot over the next few weeks. Seems like it's not as hard as it's made out to be, but not nearly as easy to do as a normal pistol."No. Listen to me because I know what I'm talking about here." -- Hannibal

I also got a speed loader for it:
Kind of bulky, but it makes going to the range a lot more fun."No. Listen to me because I know what I'm talking about here." -- Hannibal

Are you shooting jacketed .22, or are you shootin' bare back?
I'd recommend going to jacketed, as it really is much, much cleaner. (on the barrel)

Love mine. Its a no bells or whilstles model. But its accurate and easy to shoot and clean. Only problem I've had is sometime the feedramp will bite into a round once in awhile. Never figured out what did it, but it hasn't done it for along time.
