    i believe he is referring to a carry pistol made by Diamond Back Firearms. My local store carries them and i have shot a few over the past year or so. If you are semi familure with a glock style platform this gun will most certainly feel comfortable. as one would expect with a gun in this price range, the triggers vary from unit to unit along with some different tolerences in build quality also. In my very limited experience i've had zero F.T.F issues but feel that i should dually note i hadn't really put any large mouth hp's through it either. Accuracy was good and at the very least on par with any other carry frame guns. my only complaint with this gun was a fit issue. my hand fights with this gun. in a hurry i found myself double checking my grip as to not tear my hand apart... that flaw, in and of itself kept me from buying it.

    Could be a fluke, but there are others. Good luck.

    Would be better off with the Keltec but some people like the guy in the video needs a revolver because he has a bad flinch and limp wrist which is very very bad for small blow back operated automatics of any brand.

    I have one this is my second one had problems with the first one. I liked it so stuck it out, you wanna check the serial number the zd series has the bugs worked out of them. They have life time warranty and stand behind it. Much nicer gun then kel tec with better sites.
