I'll admit I bought this gun based on price as my first criteria. I did the opinion blogs and decided to go ahead with the purchase. When I picked it up and checked it out, it seemed pretty high quality (except the plastic guide rod). So I figured I had better get the .40 also. At the price combined with the rebate, it is a smoking good deal. I went to the range this weekend, and fired both for the first time. First, for the trigger pull that seems to be a point of contention with some people. The trigger on both pistols both require a decent pull strength; truth be told after a few mag's I was spot on at 15 yds and kinda like the feel. I could imagine that for women or people with limited strength this would not be my choice of weapon. However, if you have a lot of experience and a good solid (strong) grip, this pistol is a blast to shoot and is very accurate. Rapid fire was a snap as long as a nice firm grip and trigger finger are maintained. While the 9mm is a smooth shooter the .40 by contrast is violent (in a way that makes my smile). The other thing that surprised me was how compact they seemed for a full size auto, they look like a slightly bigger brother to the Taurus PT 709 "Slim". I bet you could comfortably find a way to use this as a CCW. For the money; is there a better deal? If so I haven't found it yet.
