Well not really I have had a Pitbull for five plus years (Number 88 off the line I think) in 40 S&W and like it very well. Still I really wanted one in 45, which they now make. So I bought the one in 9MM. Now I will have to get the 45 to complete the set! I would have preferred the 9 to be a six shooter (It is five) as I think they could have squeezed six in there. Lots of space between holes right now. I have not shot it yet, but I would guess it will be a relatively soft shooter.
