Except to qualify and in anger. Since Styer has chosen not to support the customer in the US market, I figure parts will become more difficult to obtain as time goes by. Why stress an otherwise useable firearm ? Department qualifies once per year a wopping 50 rounds. Then I can carry it as an on/off duty weapon. If I end up using it in anger it will be confiscated for the trial/investigation and the civil suit. $279.00 down the tubes is better than my $1300.00 Colt 1911.
