Not me!....I hate the gun...$2K in.....still hate it

I hate that I shoot so damn well with them too.....but I do.  The PX4CC is really my do all but my Elite fits the bedside and overt carry role, and this just came...

Man, you guys. Been in at least two classes where high pistol shooter hated his gun, and wouldn't stop talking about how much he hated it. 

Embrace the dark side! Love your gun hated-but-effective gun! 

Not for me, it ain't.

Figure a it's 7.5# DA trigger is roughly equal to my old G22 duty gun with "+" connector. Grip width somewhat similar....shot the glock better.

Shoot my Sams "built" M&P9 better also.

Granted, I'm not shooting the amount I used too..which was never as much as many here.

I gave in a bought the Langdon grips, feels a bit better, I'll try to shoot it this weekend, but...

Sorry, I just don't buy the DA thing. If an M9 wasn't my duty gun, I wouldn't own one.

God damn you Darryl and  Bob.  I thought working on this one would be enough.  At the range again today and shooting it felt a lot better than a Glock.  So I've decided that my 2019 goal will be a Langdon.  The only question is how far to take it.  You bastards!

My new job requires armed travel at a moments notice without a lot of intel and many changes where ending up in a magazine ban city or state is inevitable.  I needed to build a dedicated 10 round travel gun and wanted it capable of sliding a X300 on for hotel rooms at night.  I located a M9A1 Compact frame, a Centurion FS slide, a stainless Compact barrel and sent the whole mess to Ernest Langdon with instructions to do it up just like it was for him.  What arrived today is a masterpiece and fills the role perfectly for traveling with 1 gun and one box of ammo and five ten round magazines.  Have it set up for a fanny pack, AIWB, and a Shark OWB for suit and tie.  Covers all the bases.  I will be breaking it in tonight.

Ernest Langdon has hinted about a new Compact Elite LTT in about 4 months.  Though you probably already know.  M9A1 Compact frame and a short slide with a dovetailed front sight.  Inspired by you of course.

I don't know if I'll be doing any shooting in the Lone Star state this year, but I am trying to plan a drive down to see my kids and drop some stuff off.  Just haven't figured out when yet.

Just slow down and shoot out the window, like everyone else does.

Consider us a 1000-mile long drive-by.
