This is where Youtube comes in handy. So many gun vids on there - I can check to see if a specific gun does lock open when it's empty. =) Guns really do fascinate me. I want one of my own one day for self-defense and shooting range practice. The Walther P99 was a good fit for me when I tried it. Less recoil and a good size for my small hands.
