I just bought one for my wife. We spend a lot of time in Wyoming and Montana hiking and fishing. Large animals and snakes can be a problem. I like the gun. When I bought it I figured she would like the .410 for snakes as she is scared sh**less by the thought of them. I was pleasantly surprised that the .45 Colt round does not have a lot of recoil and is very accurate at short distances. I think it will be a good gun for my wife who is very sensitive to recoil.
I carry a S&W 629 in the back country and this is a lot nicer to shoot.
