I never heard of the brand. However, I googled reviews and didn't find a bad one. Here is one. BTW, the gun is pronounced Sky, learn something new every day. If you google the brand you will find a lot of reviews.

I have a SCCY CPX-2 in 9mm and have been happy with it. Its lightweight, and pretty small (I have kind of small hands for my size), and the gun conceals well. I use 147 grain rounds and the recoil is pretty mild.

http://www.sccy.com/

The SCCY's are a inexpensive gun designed for carrying. They are 100% made in the USA in Daytona Beach FL.

They had a segment the other night on the Sportsman's channel G&A TV. Kyle Lamb has supposedly had one for a couple years and was very happy with it. I'm sure he doesn't want to bite the hand that feeds him either.

I have minimal experience with one. I have a friend that bought one. I fired a magazine through it. It shot good but the trigger was long and hard like most of the guns designed to be carried.
I have a Ruger LCP and it has probably the worst trigger I've ever fired. I can live with it, it's fine for what the gun was designed for. They aren't range guns.

IMHO for the price the SCCY's are a decent gun. I believe my buddy said he gave around 275.00 for it OTD.
They make them in about a dozen different colors. If I was looking for a inexpensive carry gun I would seriously consider a SCCY. They have a lifetime warranty. Here's something that really surprises me. If your SCCY is ever stolen. if you turn in a official police report they will replace that stolen gun. The warranty follows the gun, you don't have to be the original owner for the warranty.
They are a small company trying to make a decent gun for a reasonable price.
I asked probably a year ago on one of the gun forums and it seemed like everyone that had one or had experience with a SCCY was happy with them. One guy said he sold his and was sorry he had, that he was going to be buying another one.

Took a look at the site and some reviews. Most all reviews were good. I did see on the pics one problem. Well it may be a problem as I haven't had one in my hands, but the mag release button location is prime for an accidental eject. At least for my big ole mitts anyway. If I were them, I would rethink that location just a smidge. My middle finger, from the looks in the pictures, would more than likely clip that button pretty easily. Some, or maybe most, may not have a problem with that but those of use with fairly large finger pads would have to constantly worry about finger position on the grip.



Hmmmm image wouldn't come up. Well follow the link provided by Ruger_Redhawk and you will see what I mean.

I didn't notice that when I shot my friends SCCY. It does appear to stick out quite a bit in the pictures. My buddies was the first and only of this bred I have ever handled. The thing is allot of guns have the mag release in basically the same spot.
I have enough carry guns so I don't foresee a SCCY in the future. If I were looking for a reasonably priced carry gun I might consider getting one though.

I was wondering if anyone finally decided to get a SCCY?
I really think I would seriously consider getting one if I was looking for an inexpensive carry gun.
