Went to the gun range yesterday. It was the first time in this particular store, since I am new to the area. They have most every brand of gun, and rent guns, but did not have any Steyrs. I ask them why and they said they had some, but they broke down too much. I told them steyrs were very reliable, and my S40 had been a very good gun, and he said the S40 was a good one, and the older Steyrs were better than the new ones. Has anyone seen a difference in quality in the old vs. new steyrs? It would be very disapointing if that were the case. I have not heard of anything so far. On a brighter note, I had been very disapointed in the accuracy I had obtained with my S40. One of the people there worked with me for about 1/2 hr and my groups dropped from 8 - 10 inches down to 1 1/2-2 inches. Yes, I'm smiling! I like my Steyr even better now, and hope to continue to improve. The guy working with me shot a ragged hole at 7 yds. so I know the gun outshoots me by far. A couple of his comments I took with a grain of salt were 1.that most people find the Steyr uncomfortable. 2. He doesn't like Glocks, but he shoots well with them, so that is what he carries. I wonder if he isn't just a Glock fan trying not to look biased? Any way, he was VERY helpful, and I liked the range, so I will go back - with my Steyr. Next step, get the wife going too!
