    Range report:
    I like this gun. Oh, not as much as my CZ-75, but I still like it quite a bit. Fits my hand well, groups well (at my level) albeit a bit low and left. It "feels different" than most others I've shot - I can feel the slide doing its thing during the recoil cycle and its "different" - can't describe it any better than that. Not bad, not good, just different.
    If there's something I don't care for, its the skinny trigger, just not much meat on it. Makes me glad I replaced the Glock style that it came with - that one felt uncomfortable at rest on an empty gun.
    Fired 70 rds of 1977 Yugo milsurp ammo - one round needed a re-strike, but otherwise all was well. The primers all show good, deep indentations.
    I made a video that will be up soon - hopefully halfway decent and not too boring.
