    No worries, in another couple of months it will loosen up again. Our LGS was selling 5.56 (or trying to) for $30 a box for 20 rounds at the peak of the demand. Told them they could keep it! We're still in good shape for now, but not doing as much practice as I did last year. It's like money in the bank, you just can't have too much.

Fast mag changes (on slide lock, after ejecting the mag and inserting a new one, squeezing the front strap drops the slide, chambers the round and cocks the striker). The only downside is it gets extremely hot around the trigger area after a few mags of fast shooting, due to the gas piston. Great guns, and some very impressive engineering under the grips. I also find it interesting that if you squeeze and hold the trigger, then squeeze the front strap, it will fire. So you can use the squeeze cocker as a sort of double action trigger.

    A very interesting pistol, but for carry, I prefer smaller guns, usually a Kahr PM9 with a Seecamp .380 backup.
    Thanks! That is interesting. If you have a loaded chamber and you let go of the squeeze cocker(?), say to holster, what happens? Does the gun "uncock"?

    Yes, it safely decocks whenever the grip is un-squeezed.

    I see. So if you then squeeze it again, is the chambered round ejected?

    No, once a round is chambered, squeezing only cocks the striker. Unsqueezing then decocks it. If the slide is locked back, squeezing releases the slide.

Amazing weapon and have full confidence in using it. I'd put it against any other brand out there without hesitation... but, that's just me . Take Very Good Care and Be Safe Always.

    Excellent! I have the same steel railed Jericho, but I had the factory curved trigger switched out for a Henning flat bar lever. One of my favorites for sure out of my collection.

    I own a Glock 17, 19, and 26 and I will take the Glock 9mm hands down over anything made. I have owned pretty much every kind of hand gun worth taking a look at and the Glocks are what I ended up with in the end

    THey're very nic epistols - just wear gloves if you plan on shooting more than two mags through, especially the double stacks. Suckers get HOT really quickly.
