    The Colt Agent is pretty awesome. The double action is old Colt smooth and the sights are better than you'd expect on a gun that small and light. I resisted cutting the spur, however, as I frankly had no snags and was no slower drawing it as I was with any of my hammerless Smiths. It and the S&W Model 38 are two of my old school favorites. I have a deSantis ankle holster -- the Colt fits in a J-frame leather holster, no prob -- and used to carry them as reload/backup to the 340PD when I worked in the office for the gov't.

    Yeah, the secret to the scandium is don't shoot magnums in it; the sensation is akin to blocking a baseball bat and full swing with your hand. I used to run it with a cylinder or two of magnums once a year or so to keep it real. Then I got over that little learning disability and kept to my Gold Dots.

    I used to carry snubbies a lot before retiring, but that all changed with the advent of the G43. That little gun changed my life; I'm so happy with it I have two 43s rigged up identically with Gabe's triggers. I might stick a J-frame in my vest or jacket pocket out of nostalgia, but the 43 is always with me, as is the Seecamp. Like I said, options are valuable.

    Regarding dry firing the Seecamp, by the way, I've dry fired the heck out of mine, just as I've dry fired my Glocks, 1911s and J-frames to build and reinforce muscle memory for pointing and trigger familiarization. No problems, so far, so good. I find the Seecamp trigger easy and smooth, waaaaay better than my Beretta 21A (Ptui!), more along the lines of a nice J-frame. It's true double strike, if that means anything to you, but after about a hundred rounds of Gold Dot I've not had any primer ignition issues. After all these years I'm still fascinated by this tiny, jewel-like object that is so stout and robust and deadly.

    One other thing to consider in owning/buying a Seecamp: I highly recommend getting at least one spare mag, and even better, two. Why? It's not for the speed reload, that's for sure.

    The Seecamp's unique design -- it is a teeny tiny piece of machinery, you know -- requires a magazine in place to cycle the slide. The magazine helps hold the trigger bar spring in place, so the gun is designed to not fire nor cycle without a mag in place. The bottom line is the company highly recommends to NOT try and cycle the slide without a magazine.

    That's where the spare mags come in. A spare empty magazine makes unloading the Seecamp a breeze; if you only have one magazine and want to unload your gun to clean it or dry-fire or whatever, you have to first unload your magazine, replace it and then eject the chambered round. You could cycle through all the rounds in your mag, but unless you're at the range that's no fun.

    When I got my gun it came with three total mags, which was a blessing in disguise. For what it's worth, I keep two loaded, one unloaded. Whenever I wanna dry-fire/practice/whatever I change to my spare unloaded mag, eject the chambered round and place it with my loaded mags. I then check, double check and triple check the empty chamber and mag before doing any dry-fire drills.

    When reloading the gun, I rotate mags and ammo. I do this about once a month or so. About once a year I take the whole kit out and shoot the mags empty, then load fresh ammo. I have to confess I don't shoot it much. To me it's not a plinker. I do have a Beretta 21A that I play with, plink, etc.; it's not the same as the Seecamp, but a bird in hand ....

    Anywho, not trying to shill for SI or Seecamp, but just a suggestion. Even if you don't dry-fire much, you can't have too many mags.
