You're ditching the gun cause he's a dick then? Good luck with the sale. For whatever it's worth, there was a rash of custom builder /open gun drama at one of the clubs I shot at back in VA. One dude was getting no communication on a late build from Akai, which subsequently didn't run right, I started having feeding problems on a Czechmate (eventually figured it out) and was looking for a backup/something new.
The consensus on best course of action seemed to be 9mm: Limcat, 38SC: Infinity. I had already impulse bought the CK at that point. It worked out, but based on the examples of the previous two that I've shot, I can't say that it's bad advice.
