This sucks. Even when I get the gun back I'm going to be very leery of trusting it.

Meh, I'm not concerned. If I had seen the YouTube video before I sent it, I would have just kept it.

Now that I think about id I did carry an LCP that had a recall for a few years. Oh well.

I'm hoping I get a hat or t-shirt out of this ordeal.

Fuck swag, I wan't something of substance.

I had my gun for a week and 50 rounds down the pipe when it went in. They said a few weeks for the fix, and here we are a month later and they still officially don't even know how to fix it?

It is what it is, but this is pretty irritating.

I haven't sent mine in yet. I like it too much.

After watching the vdo, I see why there is the recall, but it does not concern me. This is one of the best shooting carry pistols I've shot.

I really wish I hadn't sent mine in. But I believed the bullshit that they had a fix and the sheer volume of guns was the only reason it would take a month. Not that they were worried about getting sued and had to get as many of the guns back as quick as they could.

Now that I've got the time to actually be concerned with it I've thought about calling them, if you can even get through, and telling them I either want my gun back or a check. I doubt that will get me anywhere though.

Pistols will be returned with an extended mag.
I'd prefer a standard magazine as they have been vaporware, but I'll take it.

I want a fucking hat!

I wasn't expecting a mag which is why I was willing to settle for swag but a free mag is pretty sweet.

You seriously want a hat, so you can give them free advertising? Cmon man!
