This pistol has everyone talking...I don't understand why...

Hudson H9
One of the most talked about new products for SHOT Show 2017 is the Hudson Mfg H9; a cross between a 1911 and a Glock. Using a striker fire system, the block-like appearance is due to their unique recoil system that reduces muzzle flip and recoil. It appears to have little to no polymer parts, something it doesn’t share with the Glock but pulls from the 1911. It has a slight cyberpunk, almost Ghost in the Shell silhouette. (GRH)

I don't quite get this one. Everyone is excited and talking about this pistol because of its design features.  I personally don't like it.  If it doesn't deliver on perceived recoil (which is rather anemic anyway in a 9mm) and muzzle flip then all they're delivering is a fat, blocky and probably overly heavy pistol that doesn't have a thing on other competitors.

The gun community is going the way of the fitness industry.  Image is taking over substance.  Effectiveness is taking a backseat to "looking" effective.

We'll see what we see with the Hudson H9 but I'll be watching this one carefully.  You know a civilian model will be produced and I wonder how many will bite just because of looks.
