I've owned mine for almost 1 1/2 years and I like it a lot.

There is a vague category of small handguns that are both loved and hated throughout the world of shooting. They are called “mouse guns.” Rumor has it that the term “mouse gun” was coined by Massad Ayoob. It does not refer to firearms that are specialized for hunting small rodents or shooting computer accessories. Regardless of the origin of the term, it refers to small, weak caliber handguns that were designed with concealment as a priority, rather than “knockdown power.”
A 9mm pistol generates about the same amount of energy as a 22 wmr rifle. One can easily put a SCCY pistol in their pocket. It meets all definitions of a mouse gun.
