    Went shooting friday and broke the gun in. Put 100 rounds of cheap ammo through it and about 30 rounds of CCI Blazer FMJ's.

    Accuracy - A whole hell of a lot better than me, pretty much dead on shooting from the bench. A lot less so with me shooting it.

    Recoil - Very easy, hands weren't tired at all after ~150ish rounds, no soreness at all, very manageable recoil.

    Ease of use - Top notch, everything is where you would think it would be, mag release is easy to get to without taking your hands out of the firing position, decocker just requires you rotate your grip a bit. Takedown is simple and pretty much foolproof.

    Reliability - Zero malfunctions so far. It fed everything fine, even when mixing the two types of ammo in the same magazine.

    Pretty good bit of muzzle flash, a byproduct of the short barrel I would guess. Overall a top notch weapon that feels about as solid as it gets.

    Only downside for CCW is the weight, not quite as light as a polymer 9mm, still not a big deal though. I can easly conceal it and I'm 5'6" and about 145 pounds, I would imagine anyone could conceal it.

    I'm not too worried about the weight. I carry a Colt Commander .38super currently. It's heavier than any pistol that I'm looking at :bigthumb:

    I field stripped it at work to do the intial clean and lubricate. The mechanic that works for me decided to help me out by putting it back together, he put the takedown pin in wrong and locked it. :(

    I have mine in .40S&W and .357SIG. I shoot the .40 but love the blast of the .357SIG.
