Just got back from the local toy store (AKA gun shop) that had both models in stock. Boy, what a difference it makes firing the different models! Double action with lighter the trigger weight sure makes a difference with the kick and accuracy.

Question is though... Does it justify the $?

First and foremost, I'm a total noob when it comes to weapons! Hell, I only have 2 in the house now. And for what it's worth, I like nice toys just like the rest of you F's, but this ain't chump change after it's all said and done with purchase, accessories and tax. There a better option at the .45 caliber level I should be looking at?

This could probably be added to the ugly gun thread. Nice condition though. It's a Savage Arms 380 cal.

I agree - LEOs would just rather not make that mistake.

That said, in a military or hunting or civilian self-defense situation the switch-ability is nice.

The pistol should've been $450-$500 OTD, but I find it hard to believe that he could make the necessary changes all under $700.
