And she shot beautifully. For $350, she shot more like the $700 gun that it really is. For those that don't know, its really a Beretta Cougar renamed and moved to Turkey for production, instead of Italy. Took a couple pics of just 2 of the targets I kept. I shot more targets, but I didn't want to bring them all home with me. 20 rounds @ 15 ft Had a couple fliers in there... I'm still getting used to this gun and its extremely heavy DA first pull... it feels like 20lbs, I swear. 20 rounds @ 20 ft Again, a couple on the outside edges of the inner circle. These were the first shots for each mag, the DA pull from hell. At this point, I defintely prefer to shoot it in SA, with the hammer cocked, since the trigger pulls feels more like 6 lbs. I'd love to find out what the DA pull is rated at. I tried looking it up, but couldn't find it anywhere. I'm sure it'll pop up somewhere. Last comments... this gun is very solid, shoot straight and has an over-all great feel to it, considering its price tag. I love my Glock 17 (which I shot right after the Cougar) but the Cougar makes the Glock feel like a plastic toy. That in itself has its positives and negatives. The Glock is lighter and easier to use out of the box, whereas the Cougar makes you work a bit more and takes some getting used to. But thats okay, I got what I wanted out of this gun... a cheap .40 with excellent quality and accuracy. I strongly recommend you pick one up if you're in the market for a 9mm or .40 for a great price. Or just wait a bit longer for the .45 to show up. After 150 rounds, I give the Stoeger Cougar 8000 .40 two thumbs up. Great job Beretta/Stoeger.
