|This gun is exactly what it was intended to be, a pocket pistol. It is designed to be concealable on anybody, not to be a "range gun"; so yes, your hand will hurt if you plan on shooting many rounds in one session with this gun. (Directed to the previous comments)
With that said, this has got to be the best value of any pocket pistol. I looked at the Ruger, Taurus, and Kel-Tec. The trigger pull is smoother than the Kel-Tec, and ergonomics were better than the Taurus (in my opinion). It does have a slide lock, is easy to disassemble (can be done using a spent round as the 'blunt object') and clean, has an optional laser, and oh ya, it's really small!!
I was also looking into the Bodyguard, but CTD was sold out and after tax I would have spent over $430 from a local dealer. With this gun after shipping and FFL transfer fee, it was around $292. With the money I save, I can buy a couple boxes of ammo, a crossbreed IWB holster, and still have money to spare.
If you want a reliable, easy to conceal pocket pistol at a great value, look no further. If you want a gun that doesn't hurt your hand when you shoot it, get a large frame .22 caliber.|
