I bought this gun for practice for my wife and I and we are both lefties. I wanted to see if I liked it enough to get the M&P9 for my concealed carry. I wasn't sure I would, but I like the thumb safety. It is easy to flip just after you draw. If ones in the chamber...your good to go.
So I bought at impact guns in Boise with extra clip. The first clip I fired all 12 shots were within a small kerr jar lid group at about 20.' Feels good, looks good, shoots good. I've shot 400 rounds and cleaned it a couple of times. I had a few stove pipe, but I think that was dirty bulk shells. Breakdown was a bit qwirky, in the manual it showed pulling the breakdown release out a little while still staying in the gun...but it jumped right out of there. Took some getting used to to get it back together. I made a 1" and a min-imag light holder that clips on the accessory rail very fast, and I love it. I feel comfortable now moving forward with purchasing the 9mm version and using this one for practice. I like the thumb safety feature. I recommend this gun with a smile.
