Zero experience with center fire semi auto until helping a friend set up a g40 as a hunting rig. With an 6.5" aftermarket barrel, compensator and red dot, you can ring 100-175 yard 12" steel all day off a bench with moderate/cheap priced ammo, but I HATE the trigger. (Blame my contender for turning me into a trigger snob). Imho, the trigger turns a potential 100yard hunting pistol into a 50 yard rig, but only if you commit to a lot of practice. Functionally it works great and I could easily see one pistol for CC and an aftermarket long barrel for hunting, but I would look for a different platform.
