It's been out a while now.  I have not had the opportunity to use one.  Any first hand knowledge around?  I don't need second or third hand reports, but IF you own one and have spent some time with it, I would like to get your impressions.  I am thinking of getting one for my daughter.

I have a PS90 that uses the same round, very low recoil for that round.
 
 
I haven't shot the pistol but I have spent a lot of time looking at them.....ALMOST bought one.  The quantity of rounds and the stopping power assocaited with the round are hard to beat all contained in such a light weapon system.  Can you have her handle the pistol at a gunshop and see how it feels.... or is this more of a surprise kind of thing?

Not really a surprise... she's 14, she wouldn't be terribly overjoyed.  She will like it OK, but... It's more a practical thing.  She shoots my Glocks and does pretty well.  She doesn't like a 1911 framed gun, and doesn't like my wife's KelTec AT ALL. 
I like the low recoil, rate of fire, high cap mags.  Plus, I read a review where one author was holding 8in 3rnd groups at 200yds.

Pyro,
 
I am intreagued by you statement.  What exactly do you mean by that?  Is there a comparable pistol in .223?  Links?
 
I have to admit, I am not sure what you mean when you say .223.

Oh, yeah, he means the pistol.
 
 
I think I might have a chart on it somewhere.

I have a 22kb PDF file that analyzes all sorts of handguns I was looking to purchase for my CCW.  I bet it will make you go WOW.  I can't host the file easily.  I can email it to you OR if someone has "rights" on the site they can host it here.

I shot one (a while back)... I found it to be very impressive.  I'm in the market for one myself.  I have a good feeling that they will be very hard to find in about a year or so....they get some bad press. 
 
I'd snatch one up now.

Throw me your email.  I will send you the PDF comparing some features like weight and length to other guns.
