I bought one of these little beasties from a local dealer a few weeks ago. Man, I wish I had waited until I found this website! I could have saved tons of money. Anyways, believe the hype! This gun really surprised me in just how accurate it shoots a .45 LC for such a short barrel. Also, the pattern accomplished when using the recomended Winchester #4 shot shell should easily end any self defense situation with a positive outcome for the person packing this little beastie in just one shot, provided that the assailant is within 10 feet of the muzzle.
If you plan to pack this gun for defense I recommend loading the first chamber with a #4 shot shell, and the other four with Winchester 225gr Silver tip hollow point. the first time I shot this gun these are what I used, and at 30 feet you could have covered all five rounds with a fifty cent piece; dead on the bullseye. Even though I paid way more than Able's sells them for I am still extremely pleased with overall quality, and craftsmanship of the gun, and definately recommend them to anyone looking for a concealed carry gun. - P.
