What features does this gun have that appealed to you?             

I’m a newbie so the various safety features appealed to me.

Please share: 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?  

This gun fits my hands quite well. I have arthritis so getting good use to the racking took a little time to get used to. I ordered the spider slide from The Well Armed Woman to assist me. The recoil isn’t bad at all. I continue to practice using both hands to rack it.

How reliable is it?           

Quite reliable.

Any problems with any type of ammunition?    


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


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


Would you recommend this gun?            


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

Go to your local gun store and hold it to see how it feels in your hands and rack it.  Also, go to your range and rent several to see what fits you best. Please go with someone who knows about guns to keep you safe along with others.

Anything else you would like to share about the gun?   

Watch all the videos you can about safety, racking etc. We all need some guidance and don’t be embarrass to ask for it. There are good gun sites on Facebook that are very informative and willing to answer your questions.  It’s always better to have more knowledge and assistance for you and others. I used to chuckle when friends and others would tell me that they enjoyed shooting and considered this a good form of therapy.  I now understand why they said they enjoyed the gun therapy.
