I'll bet it'll give a good kick. Shot them little fellows most of my life and still do. A lot of people can't hit the barn when their standing inside of it with one. Got to practice a lot till you get the feel for them. Everything just falls into place then. Good luck with her.
So have you had a chance to shoot it yet? I have the same model and love it. It is my primary summer carry loaded with 135 gr. Gold Dots. What is funny is that my dad has the 85UL in blue and I could almost double tap with it at 5 yards, but not with my SS model. Practice, practice and more practice.
