    I owned this gun for over 1 yr. Had over 1000 rds of mixed bullets through it. I carried it most of the time in the winter in a Galco holster. It was very comfortable. This gun was 100% reliable and I never had a problem with it. It shot. For the summer in the pants it was a little large to conceal. For the money it
    is well worth it. Light weight, reliable and all the features of guns costing twice as much.
