That said, if you were to apply that logic and reasoning elsewhere, you should say that you will never buy American because you hated Jimmy Carter or you are angry about something Obama did or didn't do. Even though there is no relation, you punish the product with boycott. Logical? NOPE!

I foresee this pistol lasting longer than the Beretta pistol that it is based off of. The springs on the Girsan Regard seem to be stronger and hold tension much longer, and that is something I found to be a constant among other Girsan firearms. Girsan seems to be very diligent about making their firearms top tier with an emphasis on durability and longevity. Oh, and did I mention that all the components in the Regard are steel? Yup, it it a bit of a departure from the Beretta in that sense.
