This was my first firearm purchase and I have been pleased with the gun thus far. The kit comes with all those little extras that a first time pistol owner might not already have handy.
I would also like to mention it the first gun my wife ever fired in her life and she has learned how to load, fire, and how to operate it safely. She actually looks forward to a trip to the gun range.
The only issue I had with it thus far is break down for cleaning; a bit hard to get the barrel off and a pesky spring that takes some effort to get back in it's proper place on reassembly.
All in all I think it's an excellent gun to learn in and the price makes it a good value for my money.
