...and I can't say enough about this fine firearm that S&W has produced. The ergonomics of the grip are simply outstanding. The gun is supremely controllable. Fire is accurate to point of aim right out of the box. Rapid firing is a breeze, even with the heavier .40 round. I think I am in love! This gun came to me highly recommended and I am very glad to not be disappointed. I don't want to make any Glock lovers mad, but I think this pistol will be a heavy competitor for Glock, both in the civilian market and in military & police contracts (which is what it was designed for).
