    And speaking of cheap guns, any thougts from ya'll on SCCY? I've seen
    them in the stores and dismissed them as 'cheap' guns, but I've heard advertisements on podcasts where they talk about the lifetime warrenty - that DOES transfer to anyone else that owns it!

    My wife carries an SCCY 9mm in pink. It is a great little purse gun for what it is. For the price it shoots really well and gets the job done. I would never consider it a replacement for my other firearms, but it is perfect
    for my wife. If someone were looking for a good occasional use 9mm, I highly recommend it as a great secondary weapon.

    When you get used to shooting budget or inexpensive handguns, the worst thing you can do is fire a high end handgun. there's a night and day difference
    with some guns. The other day someone let me try out their steel framed Walth er Q5 Match with a Trijicon SRO mounted on it, and I also shot a S&W Performance Center (full sized frame) in 9mm. I actually shot better, and
    that may be because of the trigger and sites, and overall smoothness and ergonomics. The SRO by itself was more than I like to spend on a handgun,
    but I would like one now.

    Well with COVID guns are scarce, but I wouldn't mind picking one up
    to have as an 'extra' (can you really have too many guns? :) ) - plus they
    are making them in a .380 now I understand...

    It's the same with a lot of stuff... Guitars, for example... There is a definate difference in 'feel' of a cheapie vs a high end! But, that being
    said, someone who doesn't know the difference will not feel any difference,
    but the 'more better' you get the easier it will be to experience it!

    As for the Performance Center, my wife has a 9mm and a .380 S&W EZ and loves them! She's not as strong as she used to be and enjoys the 'easy to rack'
    part. I've been looking at the PC version of the 9 EZ and thought about surprising her with one...

    We both have .40 Shields and I bought the MCARBO trigger kits for them -
    WOW! Smooth as butter now! If the PC ones are even better? Look out! LOL



    ... I DID IT! I invented the unadoptable tagline! Try it. Won't work.

    .380 and 9mm are scarce in my area, and pricey if you do find any.
