I have waited until I passed the 500 round mark before posting this, however I now must confess "I love it"! I am a Ruger fan when it comes to their long guns and revolvers, not so much with the center fire semi-auto's until the LCP a few years back. I have enjoyed 500 rounds of flawless operation, in a little gun that has that "good feel" .The trigger was fine for this old revolver shooter, I find it clean and crisp. What more can I say, flat, light, 8 rounds of 9mm, reliable and accuracy is supreme. I am not crazy about the lawyer gadgets, however I was not crazy about a "plastic" gun in 1988, then I held a Glock! For the price, features, and ergonomics I find this little pistol to fit the BUG/OFF DUTY needs very - very well Since my wife confiscated my 709, this little jewel has filled a void in my daily attire. I stoke mine with 147gr Hydra-shok right now, have not been educated as to a better load as of yet. 9mm is offered in loadings that are supposed to perform well in shorter barrel semi's however I have not read any reports on it's performance. Anyone else echo my sentiments?
