    I love this gun! My daughter and I tried it at the range and I bought it the same week. Easy to load, rack, shoot and clean. A perfect gun for an older woman with weaker hand strength.(Me) I also shoot ambi and was able to handle it well shooting with either hand. My daughter loved it too. I will probably buy her one for Christmas.

  2. Mary Ann says:

    I shoot with both hands and works great either way. I love this gun! Went to range with brother (who found this gun for me) and his buddy who carries a Glock 19 and he resisted trying the gun but once he did he was wowed and wants one. I paid 329 for mine with safe. Haven’t seen it this low since. (SE Pennsylvania ).

  3. Susan Donovan says:

    I have one, the slide is so easy to rack.Agree with other review hardly any recoil.
    Appreciate the size and weight for conceal & carry.
    I also love the fact that the manual safety is on both sides of the gun . I also like the addional safety in the grip.
    I have not cleaned it yet.

    I bought this gun right out of the gate. The minute I could get my hands on it I owned it. The slide is the main reason for the purchase. Easy just like it’s name. I love the way it feels in my hand and the safety features are awesome. I own other Smith and Wesson’s, so I knew this would shoot wonderful. I love this gun and if it feels right in your hand, you will love it.

    I can’t believe this….I just purchased this gun and took it to the range and all my shots were down and to the left!!! I thought it was something I was doing or the sight were off. Thanks for the review!

    It looks like the EZ is ambidextrous Sue. The safety and the magazine release. Here is a review that talks about it:
