Many people have lots of issue with this gun. I have one, and I have never had a malfunction, since day one in about seven or eight month. I always carry one in the chamber, spend weeks with out going to the range and when I go I shoot the same bullets that were inside the gun, just for test and no problems. I also like how comfortable it's to carry around compare to other brands. One thing I notice that it's a lil snappy due to the light weight and size for a 9mm. But I can manage the recoil really good, in fact I like it. And to me it's really accurate. Now if I had to pick only one gun to carry and to own I would tell you to choose another one due to the poor reviews makes me feel a lil paranoid sometimes.
