The BRG9 was purchased for my wife as a Birthday gift. It was one of 2 guns I purchased for her this year. The other firearm was over twice as much but both are easy to shoot. So, that means the BRG must be a good deal. The only issue is the weight of the gun would bother most people but the few extra ounces helps reduce the recoil. As the saying goes -“Buy it, You’ll like it”.
