    i have one i've had for 20 years. i carried this gun until
    i bought my M&P. the only reason i stopped carrying it
    is the finish was starting to show holster wear.
    it has (i'm guessing) about 10,000 rounds in 20 yrs.
    without a hiccup except when i tried GEORGIA ARMS AMMO
    it kept having fte problems but no problems with any other ammo.
    do you know somewhere we could meet after work you can shoot
    mine. i see you live in jackson i live in jonesboro.
    i think my dad told me about a range somewhere in or around
    jackson that i could poss. make around 7:30 or 8:00

    oops! i just noticed you are in jackson co.

    just let me know, maybe we could meet this weekend of something.

    Carried one for years....1st shot was always off due to the heavy double action trigger pull.....swapped it for a G26.....like the glock a lot better....

    FYI the GBI issued this as a priamy carry weapon in the mid/late 1980's...

    Mine was "silver" colored 469.....was told it was as an after market coating applied to many guns by a distributor.....never could find this in writing....
