So I bought her last pm, 9mm, went directly out & shot. She has a really thick grip which will take some practice to figure out the best way to hold her. Her slide is heavy & stiff, but I've read that it will loosen up. She came with a ghost ring, but I haven't had it put on yet. I shot from 10yds. I just walked up to shoot, used the 3 dot sight that came standard on her. I did not take time to dwell on sighting; I pointed & shot. I shot steady, not fast the first couple mags. It came with a 8 round mag & I bought the 10 too. Then I shot as fast as it would go. I shot low, but in a consistant group fast or slower. The trigger didn't take alot of pull, not as light as a Kimber, not as stiff as a DA. The recoil did not even give me pause.
