    I'm still trying to take some decent pics - not my strong point. However, this pistol is sheer elegance in simplicity! The only option I ordered was a fiber-optic front sight to please my aging eyes. The current pics below don't doit justice.

    First impressions:
    * Everything you need and nothing that you don't
    * Outstanding fit and finish
    * Superb balance - this gun feels lighter than it is
    * Has the highest handhold I've ever experienced
    * The unique appearance has functional advantages for concealed carry - the bobbed hammer and smaller grip safety should enhance "drawability".
    * A very high quality pistol at a very reasonable cost

    Our tastes in handguns (actually all guns) are very personal things, especially after you've acquired years of experience with them. I personally feel that this is one of the best purchases I've made and I have several "higher end" guns to compare it with. I'd love to visit Alchemy in the not too distant future if I can.
