Flawless design and dependability, good sights, extremely accurate (per fixed barrel, 380 APC). I have even shot it in competition. Double action (and loaded round indicator) can be safety carried with round under the hammer. Stainless, so it's always the Queen of "Show and Tell". The weight makes recoil a non-issue as the new alloy frame 380's draw complaints from some novice shooters. When one can't conceal a 1911, it's the ticket.
