Just got back from Target World. I shot my brand new Solo STS. The gun worked perfectly. I followed the break in suggestions. I shot 24 rounds of 147gr Lawman ammo. No problems. Accuracy was spot on. Gun felt a little "snappy" but no big deal. More accurate than my Sig P938 and P290. I ran 2mags of Winchester White Box 115 gr bullets through the gun, it ran them without a hitch. I've decided to use this as my EDC gun.
I shot 60 rounds total smooth as silk. Great gun.

It sounds like your off to a great start with your Solo. It may only be me but I think I'd want to get a little more proven range time in with any gun before I made it my EDC, remember your betting your life on it.

Good advice Chuck, I agree. I also have one for edc and have put many rounds through it. I use only the recommended ammunition .
Good to hear a good report on the Solo though.

I have used other guns such as my Sig P290 & P938 with as many rounds through them as EDC's. So far ok. Haven't had to use them in a self defense situation, thank god.

I have to agree with the others. I too have a new Kimber I am hoping to carry daily. However, until I have a minimum of 250 flawless rounds through it, I won't bet on it. The fact that you haven't had to use any weapon yet is no guarantee you won't have to tomorrow.
Let the street hoods be the dumbies that grab a gun, load it and carry it. You be the smart one that tested and trained with your weapon.
