Ian and Karl shoot it at SHOT:

Edit to add; Now that something like this is going to be available, I can see OSHA mandating it as general police issue.

Interesting.

That is perhaps the first really interesting thing I've seen from this year's SHOT show.

I think it's going to be the next big thing in pistols.

Vortex has a new made-in-the-USA holo sight that should street for ~$400. That was about the only other interesting thing I have seen.

I'm surprised they didn't include some other features like changeable backstraps. Coming with several holsters is a great convenience however.

So I get to pay $1500 for it, plus $200 for the tax stamp, and then have to wait to take it home? Suppressor law /regulation is so effing stupid...

Still, slick concept.

The cost compares pretty favorably with buying a pistol can, stamp, and threaded barrel plus something like a Glock 19, to assemble a rig that you can't really holster.
