Glad to see you got the real McCoy- an Italian made one, rather than one of the Turkish made Stoegers.

Not that there is likely any functionality difference...the "made in Italy" sounds better though.

Great guns - reliable, accurate, easy shooting. I've carried a Mini Cougar 8000D on duty for a few years and I've never had a bit of trouble with it.
