I'm very excited that you and many others on this website are purchasing the next gen A1 series. I'm looking to upgrade myself and I think that Davidsons is offering a good deal, but since I can't actually hold one and test fire it around here I'd like to see what the consensus is on the M-A1 before I buy it off the net. If its as good at the range as it is on paper (spec wise) I think I'm in business.
P.S. High Gloss sucks...my cousin's department makes him wear a high gloss belt, holster...everything...he hates it.
