KJW are the only sidearms I will carry and use. They take a beating, work great and look real enough to me (I'm one of the people who are slightly less concerned about trademarks).
I have the Hogue grip installed on one of mine, it's really the only way to go.
Few individuals would view themselves as barbarous, no, instead they view themselves in a different light, a distorted reality that justifies who they are and what they have done.
