I had put one mag through it, in a friend's backyard, just to make sure it functioned, but hadn't really shot it before yesterday. Since it's solid steel, it's not that unpleasant to shoot. The factory grips aren't bad, and except for it being way off target at first, it shot great. I think it was me, because suddenly, it started hitting pretty close to the point of aim. A little low, but not much. I put FMJ's and hollowpoints through it, and it never missed a beat in over 200 shots fired. I did manage to hit my hand with the slide when I wasn't paying attention. Didn't cut me, just a bad bruise. The gun still managed to ignore it, and loaded the next round, with just a tiny delay. Looks like it's going to be my CCW gun.
