    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I personally find the subject pistol to be much better looking than a Glock - but that ain't hard to do. Even a Hi-Point looks better than a Glock. Very few pistols actually manage to be uglier (than a Glock), the Mars pistol comes to mind as one that succeeds in that dept.

    Carry a 25 if it makes you feel good, but do not ever load it. If you load it, you may shoot it. If you shoot it, you may hit somebody, and if you hit somebody – and he finds out about it – he may be very angry with you. --Jeff Cooper

    I handled one of these at my LGS.  The only thing to recommend it is the easy working slide so a person with weak hands can operate it.  It's not as small as lots of other .380s, not in my mind smaller than a 9mm Shield.
    Not too many problems you can't fix

    Should be a soft shooter - there certainly is a market/need for a gun like that. Not everybody can really deal with recoil, and a lot more have problems racking slides.

    You're crazy. The HP is one of if not THE ugliest handguns ever made. 
    That Smith is ugly too. But, it's a defensive Tupperware gun, it's job is to work. And be ugly.

    Not arguing. But it still looks a bit better than a Glock! Not hard to do.
