Don't forget they launch empties into the stratosphere, whereupon they return to earth and find their way into your shirt. Actually, despite their complexity, Broomies are actually pretty rugged. As long as their hammer and bolt springs are in good shape, they hold up just fine. They are pretty pricy, true, but nothing like a luger or a Swiss P-210. My unfired after proof testing 99% Broomie isn't worth as much as you would think. Maybe $3,000 or so. It's missing lanyard loop is a gig. My shooter C-96 is a hoot. The stiffest safety on the planet combined with a trigger that thinks it's a high power with the mag disconnect still in place and those ridiculous sights makes for a fun time. Ya' gotta admit, the "cool" factor is off the charts!!!
