This seems to fit right in with the market breakdown I heard in the ARF video yesterday about the Rival-S and MC9.
"There are the main groups in the pistol community. The competition shooters, the concealed carry people, and the IG Flex group."
LOL! I have been contemplating the group that really likes the guns like what are shown/talked about in this thread, but I didn't have a name for them. The "Instagram Flex" crowd is just perfect!
It's the same crowd that I see posting on FB pics of their guns that they are "building for competition" where they have just actually RUINED their gun for competition us. A TP9 SFx or a Rival with a (crappy) compensator and a "weapon mounted light", and an aftermarket mag well, and a slide-mounted optic, and a bunch of bling that does nothing but change the colors on some parts. Not a single thing done to tune the gun to actually make it shoot better ('cause they don't even know what that means, much less how to do it).
The IG Flex group. I like it. I expect they'll be snapping up the Elven Dagger and the Battleworn models, too.
The constant blue glow will be highly annoying given the Orcs I normally shoot with...
I will hold out for the future models:
Canik Elite Combat King's Sword Which Was Broken But Is Now Fixed Pistol
Canik Elite Combat Thor's Hammer After It was Stolen By Loki But Then Recovered By The Hulk Pistol
