You may recall TTAG’s two-star review of the ZiP gun. “The owner of USFA has promised me another ZiP to test very soon,” Jeremy S emailed. “They’ve made some production line upgrades and the new ones are supposed to run like tops. Apparently I’m supposed to receive ‘the first one off the line.’ I still have my doubts, plus they obviously aren’t addressing the fact that you have to stick your damn fingers in front of the muzzle to operate the bolt, but I intend to give it a fair shake.” Meanwhile, bravo to our man Michael for not saying anything about solutions looking for problems. To be fair, usfirearms.com offers a carry solution for their not-so-bad boy: the $20 Zip belt clip. Which is nearly a tenth of the total cost of the pistol. An enigmatic choice for sure, but not one without a certain . . . charm.
