I really, really, really wanted to like this gun, in the end, it was a very mixed bag. and my feelings in the end are, It\'s a gun, it\'s worth what you paid for it for sure. Not much more than that, I paid $20 more than this 2 months ago from buds, wish I\'d waited, I\'d felt better about it.
The good, It\'s reliable and will take pretty much any ammo, mine took 5 different types with no problem. It\'s accurate once you adjust the sights, it\'s black.
The bad. it\'s heavy, the grips are smooth and if you\'ve got sweaty hands look out, (I bought some bumpy rubber grips to put on mine, it helped) The trigger omg it\'s a mess. Its a combination of mushy and gritty with a very hefty pull on it, which makes it a guess when its actually going to fire. Also the slide is pretty stiff to pull back on and may be a problem for some women or again, someone with sweaty hands. Oh yea I forgot the safety, mine was stiff, it was easy to disengage but harder to engage, it has a tendency to dig into the side of your thumb when doing so.
I would definitely give this to anyone for a primary defense weapon as it is reliable and as long as it\'s already chambered with the safety on. And at this price, you can afford to buy one for all your loved ones. But if they use it for recreational shooting, it will probably become irritating to shoot. I guess if I shot it enough I could get used to it
Knowing what I know now, if I had to do it over again, I\'d probably spend another $70 and buy a taurus G2 instead.
