    I’ve got lots of cool toys but my (and my wife’s) daily carry is a 442, K I S S. I never liked the front sight though and this is what I like about this one, XS should have a big dot to go on it. The ambi release might be nice, I initially thought that dingus was a safety, glad to know it’s not.

    Looks cool. Ambi-cylinder release? Ah, I was wondering what the tab at the top of the frame was.
