Loads of Fun
This is the third revolver I have purchased, picked it up one week ago. I put 50 rounds through it and it has already become my favorite handgun. Accuracy always comes down to the shooter (unless there is some sort of machining error, etc) and I was "combat effective" at 20 yards with this .38. In other words, I can put the bullets on which ever body part I want : ) In terms of "kick", this has less than my Ruger GP100 with .357 rounds ( 4inch ). I figured it was light and small so the .38 would feel like the .357, not quite. Trigger pull not bad at all and I have medium/large hands. I feel comfortable having my wife try it (and she is little). Excellent purchase, I love it.

Excellent go everywhere pocket gun with acceptable accuracy. Lightweight and snag proof.
Two complaints, first is the built in lock which IMHO is unnecessary on a CCW gun. second is the finish flakes off easily which in no way affects performance.
Otherwise I would rate 5 stars

good ccw gun
I bought this as an alternate ccw weapon. It is very light weight and compact, so easy to carry. I've found the revolver to be a little more bulky than an auto pistol, but still pretty good. I'm not a great marksman and have found this lightweight gun to be a little less accurate than my auto, 6 or 7 of 10 shots in 6 inches at 25 feet compared to 7 or 8 of 10 in 3 inches with the auto. But it is very accurate within 10 feet, so great carry gun. It is also easy to clean.
