I have a cheapo Cobra in 9mm. It's got an extremely stiff trigger, requiring a two handed hold, and while the recoil is more potent in such a small body, the two fisted approach allows for enough control that its almost unimpactful. So I respectfully, but strongly disagree with the emphatically negative remakrs toward that aspect. However, having to cock for each pull of the trigger and having to use both hands on something that would be used so close up leaves one to think, how useful is it really. I'm here to say, it isn't, at all. It's fun and cool, but useless. Get a mouse gun like a Ruger LCP or one of the knockoffs, that are just as good, and call it a good day.
