I'm on my second bearcat; I traded my blued new model and missed it so badly I bought the stainless version. Incredible little pistols! If forced to choose only one gun to carry it would be a toss up between my S&W kit gun and my bearcat. Absolutely the best for woodsbumming, fishing, backpacking, camping, and probably the very best way to teach a non shooter how. I can't say enough good things about them... in my experience they will outshoot the target sighted single six. Get one!
