That thing is such a beast even the camera blinked.

As far as a holster, my vote goes for a brown leather version of Han Solo's rig to match the grips. I'm not sure how one would draw that from a shoulder holster that would have be to be vertical.

I called AM and spoke with Rob, and then Chris (production manager, I think). They made the points that yes, 1) the lockup is tight (for accuracy and longevity) and 2) springs are heavy (again longevity).

Chris taught me an interesting technique where one places one's thumb through the trigger-guard and uses that to push the muzzle down onto a wood surface, then retract the bolt with the other hand. That can be done until the pistol has been broken-in through shooting, working the action, etc. They are working on a cocking-aid but that the manual method should be easy enough to do.

I also mentioned a stiff thumb-safety and Rob said to pull the hammer back all the way and put the safety on (which works) - Chris said the thumb-safety won't break, it's just tight by design and to put on gloves and work it up and down while leaving the hammer in its normal cocked position.

As for a holster - I'm not sure a shoulder holster would even fit; the muzzle is literally at my hip's ball-joint while the hammer is in my armpit.

Maybe put wheels on it and tow it?🤔

Not too far-fetched - I had to take it to the range in my backpack and I felt a little ridiculous...

I don't want to bore anyone with my new toy, but I went back to shoot and got someone to video me:

I was going to ask why no double tap, hahahaha.

That looks fun to shoot. Andy, did you double up on plugs? I couldn't imagine that indoors.
In certain extreme situations, the law is inadequate. In order to shame its inadequacy it is necessary to act outside the law-to pursue...natural justice.

No plugs, just electronic muffs.

I need to work out a better grip - my left thumb was interfering with my trigger finger, so it looks like a weird hold. I was going for accuracy and wasn't using a death-grip, so the recoil is a bit more dramatic than it should be. One thing that doesn't come through on the video is the concussion this thing puts out - that's why the guy was laughing.

It's a really fun gun to shoot and it's amazingly accurate.
