When I first saw the picture of this gun, I thought to myself, "wow, what a short handle, how am I ever going to get a grip on that?". And I am not a big guy, and don't have huge hands. I shot the Glock 19 about a week before purchasing this one (because my wife was in on this decision), and my first impression wasn't exactly "perfect". Felt like my hand was bunched up on the grip and I had several failure to feeds. It wasn't long, however, that my opinion of this little beast of a gun changed. First, I was holding it wrong, second, the FTF's were only due to a 100 round or so break-in-period. When you figure out how to hold it just right and get past the VERY SHORT break in period (which might have also been the way I was holding it), this thing feels like nothing more than an extension of your own hand! As of now, I absolutely LOVE shooting this gun. It is also PERFECTLY sized for a CCW. I had it in my front jeans pocket earlier today and when standing, there was zero indication that I was carrying a gun. (Unless of course you insist on wearing those tight rodeo type Wranglers, but hey, to each his or her own, that's a personal preference). Overall, I can say that I am very pleased with this gun and I felt compelled to let potential buyers know.
