I want one. I just have to convince myself I need one.
I just bought the standard version Hunter 5 for the same discipline. Went the standard route as I do turning target as well as LSR so the semi auto function is not really required. The movement to cock the standard hunter 5 is minimal just extend the index finger of the right hand and click. The 5 shot mag also keeps me from getting in trouble with the range marshal's for fully loading my HW100 14 shot mag so I don't fire a blank if I forget in the heat of battle which way it turns!!
I am really getting to like it!!
