Tag8 is well worth the money if you're serious about a sidearm, but not serious enough to shell out for a PPS Squall. It's got good balance and a solid feel, and is nice and rugged. The easily removable barrel is very handy, although I've never had a break. Reloading with mags is great; I've never had a problem breaking paint when inserting a mag (except what everyone T8 noob probably does at least once, partially releasing the mag to check paint and smushing it back in). Tiberius customer service is great, as well. I pretty much always carry mine as a backup now, and have used it as a primary many times as well with great success.
