I originally purchased this pistol for my wife, about six years ago. Unfortunately, she has developed severe arthritis and had to switch to a revolver. Her loss was my gain. I don't like to give a review, until I've had time to thoroughly put whatever it is through its paces. I carry this little thing around with me, nearly everywhere I go. Its small enough to conceal almost anywhere. So much so`;` that I often forget its on me, because its so comfortable to wear. I prefer the 9-round mag because it fits in my hand better and I can hold the muzzle more steady for quicker follow-up shots. I've put more than a thousand rounds through it, without a single jam, misfire, failure to feed, stovepipe, failure to eject, or anything else. I'm used to the heavy trigger and have no problems squeezing it. I shot the head clean off a moccasin, about a month ago, at roughly 15ft. The only additions have been tru-glow night sights and a laser. I highly recommend this pistol.
