Captn K, I had a chance to actually shoot one of these Patersons at a rendezvous this past week. Pretty cool, although I don't know if I would buy one. Only at a reduced price!

I've heard cocking them is a trip, because there's no trigger guard to brace your knuckle against. True or false?

Yep, so true. And don't try doing a half-spin to drop into the holster, LOL! Two-hand hold even feels more weird.
