(5 out of 5) Awesome little gun
by from Hialeah, FL on

Great gun for self defense. Easy to tuck away. Shoots well. I would change the grip to a bigger size if you are a big hand guy. Great customer service. Keep up the great service and prices.

(5 out of 5) Great Carry Piece
by from Sparta, TN on

Carry this every day. Lightweight and always goes bang. Very good carry option. Best price and super fast shipping!
