    Anybody have any experience with this gun, looks like a kick ass "pocket gun", but a little pricey.:hsd:

    I would love to have one but as you've noted they're a little pricey. Hit up the rohrbaugh forums and you'll see they're also a little picky with ammo. 147gr rounds don't seem to agree with them at all. Its a little stubborn, but if it won't run my favorite round, I won't buy it.

    If I'm not mistaken, Platniumthunder mentioned something about this gun before. Can't remember what he said about it though :hs:

    I certainly agree the workmanship looks to be top notch despite the problems that do get reported for them but if it won't run ra9t I know in the long run I'll be mad that I spend $1k on a gun that won't run common ammo. If you like gold dots though...

    I train with a guy that was carrying his as a BUG last winter. Saw him a few weeks ago and asked him about it, he said it just wasn't reliable enough for him to carry and trust it. So now it sits in his safe.

    I take it you've never trained with a heel mag release? Once you've done it a bit it becomes second nature.

    They are over priced... I don't care for them because they have a magazine disconnect. If the mag's not in it, you can't even rack the slide to clear the gun....Shooting one... if shot fine for a gun of it's size... close range back up piece.

    I think you're wrong. I don't even think a handgun exists where you can't work the slide without the mag in. How would you clear it? Rack through an entire magazine til its empty?

    Hmmmm... AHHH shit, it was the SeeCamp .380, not the Rohrbaigh that had that "feature" and yes, we had to rack through a full magazine, or pull the magazine out, empty it, reinsert, then clear the chamber, since she only had 1 magazine...

    We did a night of "backup pistols" at the range one day...

    I liked the keltech .380 the best personally, but I don't carry a back up gun.. just the 26 and a backup magazine...
