I have been carrying it around in either my front jeans pocket or the back pocket. I just mowed the yard and did a ton of yard work (including digging out a ditch) with it in my back pocket..no issues. It's heavy for it's size, but it's also not so heavy that it's a pain. Hell I forget it's there. I like the little thing.
It does it's job for up close work. With the shotgun shells in there and the barrel being so short it's not worth a damn to hit anything more than several feet out. But I put some .45 colt in there and shot some targets 35 yards away, hit low about a foot. So the .45 colt is pretty good for the little more distance. Would I carry it for defense? maybe in the car or as a 2nd BUG.
