Agree 100 percent, my favorite as well. I prefer the 45 over the 9mm, which in my opinion is a 45 set on stun.

I disagree with the effective range. I used to be able to drop a target at 300 meters with my Gold Cup Series 70. Probably I could still do it even though I'd have to shoot with my left eye. ( Right eye is blind from Glaucoma)
