kbear38S,

If it is, I can't find it on the Calif. DOJ's list of approved guns, as of 12-17-01.

Beven,

It was just posted on the STI website last week. Apparently they passed just after CA DOJ updated the website for Dec. The model that passed will be sold as the California Edge in .40 S&W. My very limited understanding is there's some delay from the time it's approved until it can actually be sold but I don't really know any specifics.

You should contact STI if you need more info: http://www.stiguns.com

Tried to access the CA DOJ list, it kept failing.
(Typical state government "quality control".)

The STI site says next they will submit the Trojan in .45 ACP.

Forget about a Trojan. The only gun qualified is the one least wanted (the Edge). I spoke to the guys at STI some time back and they said they can't afford to qualify here. You have to submit three guns (which are not returned) and pay some qual fees. They are too small to absorb the $5k (or more) cost per model of gun... at least, that's what they told me.

Here's the link to the DOJ list:

The Edge is one of their best selling models. It's very popular with IPSC Limited division shooters.

Kbear: I know they sell a lot of them, that's why they spent the $$$ to pay for the testing. Problem is, it isn't what I want. I cringe at the idea of a plastic framed gun....

I remember thinking that a few years back. That and I swore I would never own a *gasp* Glock.

Now I own several of both and regret being so stubborn. I dont regret any plastic guns. Change isnt bad. Really....

Plastic Guns

I think plastic guns are OK from a reliabilty standpoint. If I ever got a CCW permit (never happen here in Kalifornia) I might get a Glock for the lighter weight. They seem to be pretty reliable but I've read some data that shows the polymers get brittle over time (?) My only real gripe against plastic guns is that it makes the gun top-heavy and screws up the balance. I've fired HK's and Glocks and I can shoot them OK, but they just rub me the wrong way for that reason. Also, I can't stand the release of the Glock triggers. I could learn to shoot it, but I could never learn to like it.
