"This is a great CCW. It doesn't snag in pockets or purses, but still allows DA or SA shooting. As I would expect from S&W, I'm approaching 2000 rds, with flawless function. Things to consider: If you shoot SA, the trigger weight is very light, almost too light. Catching the hammer to de-cock is a little tricky/risky since you only have a little nub to put your thumb on. I recommend the Pachmayr grip with the pinky landing. Stock 3 finger grip isn't very good."
