I still remember the post you ran awhile back about some fool shipping a loaded gun (I know it’s rare, but as Henri at AFS always says “Safety comes first”). I don’t like small guns and that trigger appears to be a tough one. I can’t spend a half hour attempting to shoot someone, and even my 500’s have a better trigger pull than that lil mouse. I look forward to the actual test firing that I’m sure you will perform sometime soon.
