. . . and the little pistol is definately a keeper. It was my first experience shooting a DAO pistol - this one has a lonnnng trigger pull - but I am confident it is more accurate than I can shoot it once I get accustomed to the DAO and the mechanics smooth out with more use. It handled the 124 gr FMJ Winchester 9 mm Nato rounds with no uncomfortable recoil. The manual says its safe to shoot 9 mm +, but regular use of that loading will shorten the "life expectency" of the pistol. Shooting + 9mm + is definately a "no no".
