This is my non-S&W that is a joy to shoot:
It is definitely a smooth shooter! I have run hundreds of rounds through mine and never had a single failure.I just picked one up yesterday. I'm hoping to get out with it tomorrow. It sure fits like a glove.
edit, I took it out and ran 150 rounds through it. I had some FTF's early on. They cleared up after awhile. It did keep tossing empties at my head, even after it stopped jamming.
I guess it needs alot more break-in. It is a smooth shooter though.
It's conceals fairly easily. It is considered a compact. I do have a S&W .38 Special snubbie for those summer time shorts & a t-shirt attire weather though.That looks like a good size to shoot, if you don't worry about concealment. My Ruger LC9s is much smaller, and not as fun to shoot with heavy ammo. It does 'kick a bit'. Bob
