I bought one years ago when they first came out; jumped on the bandwagon. It's a nice pistol but due to the length of the .357 cartridge, the grip is longer than most auto-loading pistols. I have large hands but the gun never felt comfortable then I held it, not like a Colt Government Model or similar clone. I probably should have kept it but decided to trade it for something else I wanted. It's accuracy was not that great. I have a couple of revolvers in .357 and prefer them over the Coonan.
