    This may sound superficial, but I don't like grips that dictate where you put your fingers. I prefer my Keltec P11 with a Hogue grip which can be custom applied to accomodate any hand.

    A couple were shooting one next to me a few trips ago at the range. Looked good but it was jamming on them a lot.

    That's not a gunsmith I'd trust. Anyone who is familiar with the KelTec P11 or the SCCY knows that when you remove the guts there are pieces that can fall off. And putting them back on is simple and takes two seconds.

    I'll probably get one, slightly more money than a Hi Point but looks much better.

    Take a look and decide for yourself!

    I just got 2 of the Gen. 1 and I love them. The slide and other parts are extremely well fitted, they are accurate, and I have yet to shoot anything through them that didn't cycle perfectly. So far they have eating 90 gr. XTP's, 115 gr. XTP's, Nosler's, and Gold Dots, 124 gr. XTP's, 147 gr. XTP's.

    When you work the slide it feels like they are on a ball bearing surface, like silk. They say it's due to the self lubricating metals and precision mated surfaces.

    The chambers are nicely supported too, although the chamber seems a little bit thin to me, but I think that's just me being a little nervous about new light weight metal alloy technology I guess.

    I also like the DA feature, ambidextrous safety, and the pressure trigger safety. And another quality is the trigger pull, it is soo smooth and constant. I am truly impressed with my SCCY's, and I plan on buying a couple of 2nd gen. models as soon as they are back on the shelves. I like them better than any of the Taurus I own, and they are about $100 bucks less than the PT111 or 709.

    My buddy had a gen1 9mm that the safety broke off of while I was shooting it. The trigger reset was horrible and he said that it was the 3rd time that the safety had broken off like that. In SCCY's defense, they do keep sending him new ones at no cost.
