Rated 3 out of 5 by RickWright Pretty pricey
I have shot some Double Taps with a lot more energy that performed better and were less money. The recoil was more than a 230 gr. FMJ, with smaller bullet. Not sure yet which I will carry. Was hoping for a lighter recoil for indoor defense situations. The 9mm CD is fantastic. The .45 I bought I am not yet convinced on.
