What features does this gun have that appealed to you?

The slide is easy and it shoots like a champ!  Beautifully designed pistol.

Tell us about shooting this gun:

When I first purchased it and shot for the first time, I was a little intimidated, but 2nd time was a charm.  I ran almost 100 rounds and at the end and I was in love.  It’s extremely accurate due to the fiber optic sights.  I’ve shot other pistols since but I always go back to my Molly. 😉

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?

I have small hands but it’s a good fit for a double-stack…fits like a glove.  It has fiber optic sites as mentioned above and easy to focus on the target.  I’m in my mid 50’s with some joint weakness.  The slide is really easy to rack and considering the power of this pistol, it has very little recoil.  It is a dream to shot.  I just wish I could cc, I’d have to wear very baggy clothes to do so, I’m sure for men it’s very concealable.

How reliable is it?

It’s very accurate and after approx 350 rounds and I have had no jams.  I hit the center of my target with ease.  I love shooting this gun.

Any problems with any type of ammunition?


Was it easy to take down and clean?

Very easy to take down and clean.

Would you recommend this gun?


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

All of the above, but if you’re a woman trying to conceal, it’s not the easiest.

Rent one at your next range visit…it’ll be a blast!
