Just picked up the carbine yesterday, no opportunity for range time yet, but a few things pop put right away. First, this is my first time holding/handling one, and it is heavier than I had anticipated, not bad heavy though , not for its intended use, home defense. Its not going to be a patrol rifle. Pat likes it a lot which is why it was picked in the first place. It does have a very solid feel and is comfortable to shoulder. It is easy to see why she likes it, and I have to believe that recoil with the .45 will be pretty tame. The spring loaded buttpad is a nice touch too. I have on order the forward grip, spare magazine holder, and 200 lumen weapon light/green laser combo. Next will be a reflex sight and maybe a better charging handle.

One thing that became readily apparent was that this rifle is in some ways more comfortable for a leftie than a right handed person. We are both left handed but she shoots predominately left handed and me right handed. The charging handle is easier for a leftie to work, and due to the size of the grip and position of the controls both the safety and magazine release are easier for the leftie to manipulate with the trigger finger than for a righty with short thumb. I cannot reach and manipulate or depress either without completely changing my grip on the gun, but with my left hand both are very easy.

I think the reddot reflex sight will be a good addition for Pat and I can see what she liked about it. This will be both fun

So, Pat got a new gun.   What makes you think she is even going to let you shoot it?  You may hear the words "Go get your own".

I should be so lucky lol. If history is any indicator I will buy something new and she will take that too, lol. Is how she got her .357 magnum and Marli, both of which were orginally bought for me.
