I have one, and love it. I have the 2 3/4 version with the cocobolo grips. It is truley light yet feels really good in hand. Nice and light, and plenty of power. Really good for concealment. Does have plenty of recoil, but nothing a firm grip can't handle. Also a very good looking pistol. I have several firearms that I would not get rid of, and this one has made the top of my list. The only question I have had is shooting +P through it. I currently am waiting on Smith & Wesson to reply to my e-mail. I dont plan on shooting +P's with any sort of regularity, but I would like to know for sure before I attempt to shoot a few. I would really hate to crack the frame of the cylinder. I assume it will be ok. The gun feels really strong. But better to be safe then sorry.
Yeah, I actually e-mailed and talked to Smith And Wesson, and they said +P's were ok to shoot all the time. I figured that would be, but I really didnt want to crack the scandium frame on a $700 gun. My biggest beef with it, is I have the Cocobolo gribs on mine and I love the looks of them, but they are really slick so it has a tendancy to want to slip down. I know I could get a nice set of Pachmayr grips that would solve the problem, but I really love the look of the Cocobolo. Roadkil Bill do you know of anyone I can send the gribs to, to get them checkered ? Thanks for the help.
