Wow, I was JUST on that website, looking at that very gun for the first time!

It does look pretty cool, if a tiny bit wide. Still looking for a .45acp slimmer than the 1911 design....

Probably wont find one slimmer than a 1911. Only fullsize gun I have seen slimmer is the Tokarev pistol....but that wouldnt make a good carry gun. No interia pin, no safety.

I've shot that pistol recently... It shoots like a water gun. Picture a watergun that shoots bullets. Thats what it felt like in my hand... I was pretty accurate with it however.

Yeah, I know they haven't made one yet, but for every new design that comes out, I keep hoping.... :)

if you're getting 6 .45s why not get a wheel gun with 5-6 .357s?

isn't part of the point of auto pistols the mag capacity? (along with quicker mag changes)

An SA is slimmer for ease of fit & living with in ones pocket/purse/shirt, and same applies to spare mags.
