Well I hunted this gun for a while for the wife and I have to say this ranks up there as one of the must have pistols for a woman. My wife so far has fired over 400 or so rounds through this pistol with no problems. It is deadly accurate, low recoil and follow up shots are just very easily duplicated. I have fired many pistols and this may be in the top 3 for a cw pistol. My wife loves it and so do I truth be known. My pt140 is great also but no way can I duplicate 5 to 7 shots in 1 to 2 sec increment with as much accuracy as this pistol. Also the 15+1 capacity really gives this gun pretty much the icing on the cake. Kudos to Taurus for making the 638. The wife and I love it. She has shelved her glock 26 in favor of this pistol.
