    How hard is a little hard ? I owned a Glock with the 12lb trigger pull, and it seemed stiff but not horrible... but then agian I've got a good grip. I won't say why..... :rolleyes: I'm trying to behave myself here.... :D LOL

    How many pounds of pull do you think it was on your firestorm ?

    Mike It was about the same as a Glock when I used DA. My friend has a glock and I tried his trigger and compared it to my Firestorm before the spring kit. Now its lighter:)

    You mean the standard 5.5 Glock trigger or the new york trigger ??

    If its lighter than the standard 5.5, then its way to light for me. Especially if this is to be a ccw firearm.

    Re: Got a new Firestorm mini 9mm S/S.. *RANGE REPORT**

    Just got back from the range with my new firestorm tonight.. 150 flawless rounds.. accuracy was very good.. not as good as my full sized Beretta 92 but darn fine for such a short barrel. By the second box at 33' I was shooting like this.. Very happy with my Firestorm

    Here's your Firestorm's cousin; the Bersa Ultra Cpmpact .45 - small, light, shoots well, well made, good price.
