Fun to use this gun I ONLY use this for tactical classes and not for my edc –

How would you describe the recoil, is it manageable?

Absolutely- love this gun –

How does it fit your hand, are the controls of this gun easy to use? (Safeties, slide pull, magazine release, trigger pull, etc.)

Fits my hand well EXCEPT FOR BEING LEFT-HANDED!!! You can’t reach the safety- It’s impossible (tiny and which appendage am I supposed to use my nose???? Because I have to keep my grip and I have a loaded firearm.  Oh I’ve tried called S&W custom center – but they won’t even try to modify for us lefties. And I live in California so there is that problem too.

I got the night sites at time of purchase and I like them

I need help to take the gun apart – needed my hubby’s strong hands.
