The Star PD was among the first of the small, lightweight .45s to enter the market. It's a sleek, well-made little pistol that was very popular with LEOs in the late 70s and early 80s as a back-up, and in a few cases that I know about as a main weapon. It was only made from 1975 to 1983, when Star fazed it out in favor of the Firestar. Big mistake, as the Firestar was a heavy pistol that in no way appealed to those who had appreciated the PD.
My PD is accurate, reliably feeds just about anything, and is pleasant to carry, but I never could become really fond of the grip frame. It's OK, but it never felt "right" to me like a 1911 or a Browning. It felt a little cramped and my hand never was able to settle in on it like it belonged there. Still, it's a nice little pistol that weighs only 30 ounces loaded. The adjustable sights were a welcome touch.
Mine is definitely minty as it never got used all that much. Since replacement parts can be iffy at best I have decided to relegate it to the safe until it finds a new home, which I am not really anxious to look for.
