It certainly feels well balanced and comes readily to hand. There is even a belted scabbard/holster for it that I have ordered. Watch this space.

I think KJ bought a cheaper version of the Mare's Leg. It looks like an excellent close quarters neighborhood controller.

It's no "sniper rifle," of course, but as the expression goes "It's a real hoot to shoot." And the lever action is as smooth as silk.

I stopped by my FFL's shop the other day intending merely to have some coffee and conversation.  Then I saw this thing chambered for .357 Magnum hanging on the wall behind the counter and it seemed to be calling my name.

Did I need it?

Lord, no!

Did I want it?

Lord, yes! (I've wanted one ever since seeing the Steve McQueen TV series, "Wanted, Dead or Alive," years ago.)

Did I buy it?

Absolutely! 8)

Get a pinky extension for sure!  Also VZ grips often help...a little more to hold on to.  For me, at least, trying to aim to the X and stage the trigger is a disaster.  I am much better with a point and pull movement in 3 or more quick bursts from 10 yards in (but MUCH better inside 7 yards).  If I am firing more than 3 or 4 magazines in practice, I wear a shooting glove rather than "training in" a flinch reflex from finger damage.  This is still the absolute best small 9 for carry IMO.

Very good points. I will get some of the standard pressure stuff on my next purchase and report back. Yesterday I broke in the R9 at my local range. Ran 50 124gr gold dots without a hitch so i tried some cheaper Federal champion 115gr which ran a few mags before getting an FTE. I ran a couple more mags and had one more FTE so I stopped and ran another 38 gold dots which were again flawless so I saved the last 12 to carry. Total shots fired was about 125-150.

The gun was surprisingly accurate when I actually tried to aim it but it sure is a beast to hold on to. I made it a point to shoot each mag without adjusting my grip between shots because every video I've seen on YouTube showed the shooter having to regroup between shots. I was able to do this fine but I think a pinky extension would have helped.
