I've yet to shoot one. Handled one before and it felt pretty sweet. It points really well. The only thing I don't really like is the 3-position safety on something that's supposed to be made for quick handling and snap-shooting.

Never shot anything with one, only handled a few rifles that had them. I like em a whole lot. They're hard to like because they look so goofy until you pull up a rifle that has one.

just wait till you actually have it in your hands (can't believe i just typed that). its kind of a survivalist gun but from what i just saw its more than accurate enough for deer.

Ah, sorry man.

And to be honest, I am the lefty, and was really sitting there staring at it so long that I began to wonder if I started this thread
