Purchased this gun for my wife as he can not pull the slide back on our HK and HiPower 9mm pistols. Very lingt and well made and amazingly accurae for such a short barrel. What really surprised was the kick. You get to feel the full force of those .38 Spl. cartridges. Way way more than with the mild, heavier semi-automatics. Just got to get used to it, I guess. Will look into some Hogue grips, maybe providing and offering a little bit more padding. I am satisfied. One last comment; Wish I could find a "speed loader" that worked well without having to shave or modify the stock grips slightly, to make room for a more "straight in" cartridge insertion (without a lot of jiggling).

Fun to shoot, reliable and accurate. I have a big hand and not a problem. I find the kick very mild and the trigger even on double action is great. Alsogreat for women that might have problems working the slide of a semi-auto pistol. Great for concealment.
