I used to own one.


Pros: light gun
Light recoil, longer range accuracy, 20 round capacity, they are uncommon and get attention at the range.

Cons. The gun is expensive, the ammo is expensive and hard to get especially the lead free HP rounds, difficult to reload due to case coating. The only effective bullet is the steel core which will tumble and penetrate body armor but these rounds are not sold to civilians. The safety!!!! I rest my trigger finger on the slide and that is where the safety is. I bumped it on or off all the time. Drawing from a soft holster will also trip it. The HP and heavier polymer tip rounds have a different point of impact.

The lead free round will penetrate level II body armor but not level III which is what most people who wear body armor will have.
