In judging this firearm wouldn't you class it with the Beretta M21 and Taurus PT22? That's what I said in a conversation with a former co-worker who had just bought one "For the Wife" when he asked my opinion of it. He stated he was having a hard time getting any accuracy out of it at 7 yards and that his Wife was mostly missing completely at that distance. I also pointed out that stopping power was on the week side (I was being charitable) and the only cure was a lot of practice. He was a little put off when I said the gun may not be suited for his Wife. He also said it was "jamming" a lot. Limp wristing? I offered. Maybe, but he had $350.00 in the gun and wanted to make it work. I counseled practice and more practice but ended on a note that he might be better off trying one of the EZ rack S&W .380 's. I know this wasn't what he wanted to hear.
