It feels like and fits what a pistol this size should feel. You can switch the safety simply with your thumb.

Also, you can still feel the recoil but it is slightly less if you're going to compare it to a 9mm. This is an accurate and controllable handgun.

This Cheetah might break the bank a little bit, but who says quality comes at a low price?

    I had one for a while and really enjoyed it, the only reason I got rid of it was it was about the same size as a Glock 19, with the Glock being larger caliber and high capacity and I had trouble using it with IWB holsters. I prefer soft suede type holsters and the magazine release frequently managed to get pressed in so when you drew the gun the magazine wasn’t fully seated. Probably would have been fixed with a hard shell kydex holster but I ended up selling it and buying a G19.
