Got to test it yesterday so here is the range report.

Felt Recoil seemed considerably less than expected for the caliber
(could have been my imagination though)
Accuricy was decent but could use a bit of tweaking
(seemed to shoot just a bit to the left, but it could have just been something I was doing wrong)
Mechanicaly the thing operated smooth but could still use broken in
(only had time to put 30 rounds through it yesterday)

In all a nice to shoot pistol, feels awkward at first to hold one but shooting is quite comfortable.

Only Complaint is the indent on the trigger guard had a tendency to pinch my middle finger a little every so often.
(perhaps I am griping to tightly with that finger?)

No Kabooms? Sorry had to.... GLOCK and .40 S&W is a recipe for disaster.
9mm, .45 acp, .45GAP never hear stories. Run like tops.
.40S&W is like a pinto in a rear end accident.
Too much pressure, not fully supported, weak case head.

Old wives tale???
Any way ~ good luck mate - nothing like "new gun smell.."

Shooting to the left usually means you are putting too much of your trigger finger on the trigger. Try it with just the pad and not the knuckle.

Yeah I Know, but this gun was a Gift so I didn't have much a choice in Caliber.

I was, but I may have not had a proper hold on the grip from time to time.
