This was a brand new gun, shot right out of the box, with all that entails, whatever that may be... ;o) Observations-- trigger, a lot heavier than I thought it would be, even with the hammer back throws brass directly in the face. Is this unusual? At least a half a dozen rounds bounced off my glasses, nose, or forehead. Awesome gunpowder smudges! One jam (no big deal), but a bit more odd, once it kicked the slide all the way back with two or three rounds still in the clip. that surprised my instructor. Any thoughts? Nice results, all "misses" are vertical, indicating simple unfamiliarity with the trigger, otherwise VERY tight shot groupings (lots in a tiny grouping around the heart area @ twenty feet). No shots that would not have killed or maimed "sorry I missed you heart and lungs and hit your liver instead--I'll try harder the next time you break into my house". The one "zombie shot" hit right between the eyes. Head shots are not as ergonomically effortless as center mass shots. Sorry if my terminology is wrong or whatever. Nice gun. Hits what I point it at. 100 rounds produces a nice, sweet but not cloying aftertaste in the back of the throat. That surprised me. Has anyone else noticed a delightful aftertaste after shooting?
