    I took the plunge last week and jumped into an area I’ve never been before, the 1911 area, or in this case pretty close to it, with the EDC X9. I picked it up today.
    I had been looking at several different options lately, and I saw one of these a few weeks ago and decided I wanted one just like this. I floundered back and forth and changed my mind, until a guy I dealt with previously decided to sell his.
    I have heard about the excellent build quality, and I have always thought my less expensive polymer handguns were well made. But this is on another level. I am so impressed by the quality. The fit, OMG. There is no space/gaps. It is so smooth. I picked it up today, and didn’t get to go out and shoot it yet, but man, so I want to!!
    I bought it with the idea that it might become my EDC if choice, but I’m not sure I’m going there just yet. I obviously have to practice (a lot) and get used to the safety before making that type of switch, but it may be larger and heavier than I hoped. Probably as much as I expected, but more than I hoped. It may be relegated to more of a range gun. We’ll see. Either way, I’m in the club.

    Behold the Storm Trooper X9...

    The finish is even better than I could have imagined. I thought it looked good in the pictures, but it looks even better in person than I could have imagined.

    I’m afraid to let him. With the spree he has been on lately, he would probably make me an offer I can’t refuse!

    I'll bet it shoots terribly, probably going to be a major disappointment. Tell ya what I'll do, I'll take it off your hands before you have to suffer that disappointment. You'll walk away with only fond memories :cool:

    LOL, enjoy that beautiful thing. Can't wait for a range report :thumbs:

    Your recent journey has inspired me to go ahead and consider a few that I have liked for a while, but was hesitant to take the leap. I’m glad some of you have jumped quicker than me, because there have been a few that would have derailed my journey. I keep telling myself that there are a few that I really want to check out, and I am going to try hard to stick to it.

    These are definitley different from anything I’ve previously carried, which is part of the draw to it and the related 1911s. It is going to take a while to get used to the safety. I have been handling it this evening trying to familiarize myself. I am excited to try it out and maybe try out a few others. Reading reviews still didn’t prepare me for how solid this thing is. No slop, tight fit all around, and smooth. Can’t wait to test it out.

    Congrats

    I love mine.

    When I used it in my CCL renewal class, the instructor asked me to spread out my shots because if they were one hole groups he would count shots that were not countable as misses! ;)
    Then when he saw the X9 he accused me of cheating...
    Then smiled;) And said nice gun:cool:
