The FIST frame seems ridiculous...

I agree, Duane; this is a better depiction of the product:

I'm not an expert in tactics, but I think; 1) Not sure that frame extension will necessarily serve the intended purpose; and 2) I'm not sure pushing your gun into your target is the recommended technique anyway.

If you really think you want to be able to make contact shots, carry a revolver.

My two cents...

The FIST frame is only one option and the standard versions appear to have some promise of quality, value, and dependability but we shall see.

It is always good to see new gun manufacturers and I wish them well.

My first reaction is that I really do not see anything new here and they are kinda late to the show.

Agree the FIST is just an option... a gimmick, perhaps. 

I always welcome a new manufacturer -- it is not an easy market to break into.

Nothing very new here but I think they are touting quality parts and craftsmanship. It takes a lot of chutzpah to take on Glock, S&W, Ruger, Beretta, FNH, Springfield, Sphinx, etc..

It certainly does tracker and that is why you really need to put a new twist into your design.

An XDs with a new name on the slide might not draw too much attention.

How was your weather this weekend, did Houston get hammered again?

We had 24 hour non-stop rain this past weekend for about 8 inches in my area. The drainage is good here as long as the rate of downpour stays reasonable. More is coming this Saturday so it is time for the previously much needed rain to stop.
