The Solo is perfect. The Solo is a POS.

It's so crazy that so many people on this forum continue to talk shit and argue about this gun. We are intelligent men and women fighting like a bunch of kids. I love my solo. I hate mine. I never owned one and hate them. Store is full of them, store is empty of them. I love mine. Your crazy if you do. Did I leave anyone else out?
Surely to hell there is something better to talk about. I don't care if someone hates theirs or loves theirs. Why do some of you give a shit?
I had one hated it, others love theirs, thats great.
We are all supposed to be God fearing, country loving, gun carrying Americans.
We should support each other, help each other, and have fun.
Some people love the Solo, some people hate it.
Why the hell do some of you care either way?

Zoomy, take a deep breath. It will pass and we will be arguing about something else. Seems like we need to convince each other our thoughts on the Solo are all that matters. What really matters is respect and it is here if we all would just try to look a little deeper.
To each their own . Hang in there Zoomy,

We ARE having fun, Zoomy, we really are.

You wanna buy my Solo? Then you can formulate your own opinion and join in the festivities! Woohoo!

Zoomy, I don't think I've ever seen more controversy over a gun. The Solo is one touchy subject.

I've seen the controversy myself. But you have to look at the Solo like you would a sports car. It was designed for a specific reason, and used within those guidelines it works. Try to make it something it's not and you have problems.

How many times have we read that a Solo experiences stoppages with bulk produced 115 grain loads? Duh.

I would make an analogy with scandium framed five-shot Smiths. They were designed for a specific reason. Yeah, firing a .357 magnum load in one is painful. It's the price you pay for getting the other features.

We used to describe some firearms are being designed to be "carried a lot and shot a little." The first alloy frame Colt Commanders got that rep.

I think the Solo fits that same category. Make sure it functions, and then carry it as it was designed.

I do think most of it is out of fun. The part that's not fun is there isn't one thread where the word solo shows up that doesn't get derailed and most end up with name calling. It keeps going because ther is no way to settle it. I mean if this were a my car is faster than yours discussion we'd line 'em up and run what we brung and settle it right here lol

Guess grandad was wrong. He always told me nothing will ruin a friendship quicker than discussing politics or religion. He left out Kimber solo lmao

I do have a nice Pinto and Corvar
I had one of each and liked them both. Had a 63 Corvair that was good transportation and a 1977 Pinto Cruzin Wagon that was a sharp little car! Don't know what a Solo is....LOL

As if we don't have enough to worry about, now we could have women in the men's room telling us to "put the seat down".
