$500 is a steal for this gun. It's very very well made. Superior in my mind to a kimber, any series 80 colt, para-ord, and the lower and mid end Springfields.
I don't buy ammo anymore, it's too expensive for me, so I reload it.
My reloading vids, if anyone is interested...

I found this place while traveling for business and stopped in.
I went in looking for Olivas, just by chance because I had found not much luck locally. Turns out they were the only supplier in New England for a few months before...
When I was first looking for cigar information a couple of months ago, I googled "cigar forums". CS was not first on the list, so I linked to four or five other forums, read them all, went back and forth looking at the culture, activity, design, etc.
CS was the most active by far ( I like...
They do burn funny, that's for sure (mine are newish too, and mostly have never left their box) but at least they are easy to relight. ;)
I had another one on another drive this morning, and I had read that the wrapper has a really salty taste to it, which I haven't noticed because I almost...
Really? I thought I had looked it up correctly, once, when I was curious as to what the heck "toothy" meant. Thought it referenced the presence of bumps.... guess I'll have to look it up again. :) Thanks for the heads-up though!
