I agree with Todd. I think Krieg you are being overly critical in your assessment. There are always going to be detractors and no product can please everyone but the majority of CT/LCP owners seem to be very satisifed with the product and the company's after-market service. Let's put things in proper perspective to be fair. It is not a fairly common complaint. Keep in mind with respect to gun forums (or any online forum for that matter) that folks are far more inclined to post negatives than positives and you need to be judicious in what you read and believe.
