I had the elite version and in a 40 the gun is a monster. The sharp recoil of the 40 combined with a small pistol was more than I wanted to deal with, It just was no fun to shoot. They are a great gun and very well constructed but I sold mine and purchased a S&W J Frame 38+P. it is a lot lighter, more manageable and the same size.
