I think this was the model of a gun my friend bought, thinking this would be his carry weapon. We went shooting yesterday with it, along with several others. Here are my thoughts, and remember, this is just one man's opinion: Wow. This is the worst shooting gun of all (my) time. I noticed three problems with me and it: 1. The weight of the gun in that caliber makes for an incredibly hard to control recoil. And it's top heavy, whether there is a full clip in it or not. 2. The grip is narrow, at least for me. It made it even harder to control, and I found myself really holding on tight to a small grip trying to minimize the kick, which made me cramp up. 3. The worst part, but the most easily fixed I suppose, is the grip is incredibly painful. Physically painful. It hurt a lot to shoot this gun. the diamond pattern is so pointy and aggressive that it cuts into my pinky and ring fingers, almost to the point of tearing skin. You couldn't fire more than two or three times in a row without giving your hands a break to recover. He felt the same way, and is going to sell it after one day. Has anyone else had any experience with this model? I didn't mean to dump on the weapon or offend anyone who may like theirs. Like I said, this is just my opinion on how my hands reacted to this model.
