It is a double action only gun, the jury is not still out. Notice, it has a zink alloy slide not steel. Zink allow makes the gun heavy and it is not as strong as steel. I would stay away from a zink alloy gun unless you are just planning to use it for plinking, I sure wouldn't carry one for protection. It also fires from an open bolt blow back action which is very unusual for a handgun. While it is true even the most expensive gun can fail, I wouldn't trust my life to a handgun that cost $150.00 new in the box.
When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!
