I forgot to mention that last week, MoM told me that she would NO LONGER repair the Stallard JS-9, no matter which grip was on it. She cut off the "Flat" grip Stallard last year. MoM also replaced a few Black "Round" grip JS-9"s with some Nickel models last summer, but not anymore. She will only REPLACE them with C9's from now on. I guess we all knew this day would come?
