Are you right handed or left handed?


What features does this gun have that appealed to you?

It was small enough for concealed carry.

Tell us about shooting this gun:

Couldn’t get on target. Hard to rack. Also found that if you tap it to hard, it will load bullet in camber!

How does it fit your hand, how do you like the sights, how difficult is it to rack the slide, how would you describe the trigger pull, and how would you describe the recoil?

Fits my hand great, sights are good. Recoil is different than what I am used to. I have been used to shooting a 40 cal and a 22.

How reliable is it?

Reliable, just hard to rack.

Any problems with any type of ammunition?


Does this gun have any specific ammunition requirements? If so, please explain:


What do you dislike about shooting this gun, if anything?

Hard to rack the slide, hard to hang onto when hands sweat. What would you do to hang onto it when adrenaline is flowing? Also had a difficult time at the range in getting on target.

Was it easy to take down and clean?

No. Hard work to get slide back.

Would you recommend this gun?


For someone considering this gun, what would you tell them?

Try it out first. On the ‘tap, rack, pull’, don’t tap too hard as it loads a bullet into chamber if you do!

Anything else you would like to share about the gun?

If ever in a defense situation, I want a gun I can hang onto not slip around in my sweaty hand. This gun does not make it for me. Will be looking to sell it any get something better.

    I got my shield a few weeks ago. I should have read some reviews first! I am disappointed in mine. I can rack it easily but it jams and I can’t explain but it just doesn’t act right. It’s sick is all I can say. I hate it
