This was my first handgun purchase when I was a young man about 20 years ago. I was a busy young businessman from a non-military background or family. However, our family shot handguns & hunted, so I was not unaquainted with firearms.
I purchased this handgun about the age of 30 after my brother convinced me that a 5' 8" 150# white male needed the ability to say "no" while living in the Greater Houston area.
I did my research and bought this gun because of ease of use, a heavy stainless steel block, and the ability to shoot really hot loads (+P & +P+).
20 years later, it is still true to its heritage. I've become more proficient in my hand gun training so I now own more sophisticated weapons, but for a "starter revolver," this gun cannot be beat.
This gun will enable neophytes the ability to say "no" to bad guys. That's what this gun is designed to do.
However, the hotter loads (+P & +P+) will probably be used only by males because the recoil on those rounds is so hot; it really wrips your wrists and I suspect that most women don't have the same wrist strength as males.
That being said, if a woman loaded this revolver with expensive personal defense rounds, she'll survive an experience if a bad guy tries to take away her right to say "no."
And no, I will not sell it!
