    I suppose if a product holds up to his reviews (optics in particular) it's vetted "bullet proof" if nothing else.
    Thatís the whole point...he reviews stuff intended for duty and self defense, not range toys.

    Yam posted this morning that he got one of the prototype Safariland STI Staccato P Duo (with weapon light and RDS) holsters and is reporting that there is no firm date on when it will be available, but rumor is that it will be Spring. Yam also has an M&P/RMR/X300 holster on order from Safariland and will compare it with the prototype STI holster. (Oh, and he got his Staccato P Duo last week.)

    To be fair though I'm not sure there are many more people in the industry with as much time, or effort regarding RDS's on handguns than Aaron.

    Okay I actually want this now. Not because itís a new-new nor even a 1911 but I think this gun can go places especially with magazines being streamlined.

    Like Glock 19 is the best all around choice but then I am the same semi-closeted homo with a few SR-25s so I donít mind paying a premium for something that feels better to shoot.

    Iím not a wealthy man. But if it makes me feel good I will get it. Iíd certainly shoot one first though.

    I HAVE shot other folksí 2011s at IPSC matches and some choked on mags a lot and the ones that worked well REALLY worked well.

    I like it has a 4.25 barrel. But the more I hear the more the needle is being pushed.

    STI demo days, look up on their ďeventsĒ tab on their website. I found one close and went, and now I have a nice STI on the way now...

    Two-minute tour of the STI plant:



    ETA: The condition of (what I suppose is) STI's US flag bothers me. The Texas flag is in similar condition, but eh.

    Has anyone bought the C and found Kydex holsters for it.
    Leather doesn't survive the S Florida heat.

    I got a C, love it. But the holster options right now are crappy.
