I've had mine for over 5yrs now and it shoots great every time. I also use it as my concealed carry weapon even though it might be a little bigger than some concealed carry weapons. I've still never had a problem concealing it even though I'm of a smaller frame. I would recommend this handgun to anyone; it's easy to clean and fits well in my hands. It's true that it might be a little more expensive then some handguns out there, but it's worth it for the quality. I expect to be able to hand this gun down to one of my sons.
