This is a great compact .40 and my first Steyr. I've only put 100 rounds through it so I'll update again after another few hundred. I did experience 2 FTFs but this may be a matter of break in or it may be because I didn't clean the gun before I took it to the range (just couldn't wait!). This is a very accurate compact gun. Certainly plenty accurate for the short ranges typically involved in defensive situations. The recoil is only slightly more than my SR9C, which is a pretty soft shooter. The grip angle lets you get high on the bore axis so this may lessen felt recoil. The best part of this gun is the sights, however. The trapezoidal sights are intuitive and give you very rapid target acquisition. I wish I had them on all my handguns! The trigger is very light and feels more like a single action than a double action. This is good for accuracy but the combination of a light trigger and no manual safety may raise concerns for some. Also, be aware that while the photo on Bud's shows a version with the manual safety (in upper part of trigger guard) this gun DOES NOT come w/a manual safety. Overall, I highly recommend this gun. It's not only practical for a concealed carry weapon, it's fun as hell to shoot and accurate to boot!
