A great very well made small pistol which is ideal for those who have trouble racking a slide. All you have to do is tip up the barrel load a round into the chamber and push a loaded clip in and you are ready to go, great for ladies and those who may have trouble with other auto loaders. Accuracy is good and you can get a lot better because a.22 is cheap to practice with and as with any handgun practice is importent. To get trouble free operation keep the Bobcat very clean, shoot a lot to break in, and use either CCI Mini Mags or CCI Stingers, both of which give 100 percent trouble free operation in my .22 Bobcats. Cheap or low powered .22's will jam in the Bobcat and cannot be counted on, don't waste your time or money on them. Another thing which is great about the Bobcat is that it is a great backup gun or as a CCW to slip into a pocket holster and watch it disappear in your front pocket or jacket for the utmost in carrying abiltity. I know a great many may look down on the .22 for a defensive round, but after having two friends murdered, shot instantly dead with one shot from a .22 I can testify the round is capable of doing some serious harm to a bad guy. A .22 has it's critics but do you know anyone who would volunteer to be shot by a .22? So the Bobcat is easy to shoot, easy to carry, and well made, and reliable if you feed the right ammo. The .22 Bobcat is so much cheaper to shoot compared to a .380 or 9mm so you can get a lot of practice in to delvelope accuracy and gun handling skills. A great lttle carry gun and chances are if you have a Bobcat you will it have with you if you end up in harms way. A more powerful gun will not help when it is hard to control or so much trouble to carry it's left at home in the drawer. I own many pistols, but I now own two Bobcats, now that my wife tried and wanted my first one.
