An underrated and fun handgun for plinking and paper punching.
Keep in mind, this is a ship-to-FFL item; check dealers in your area for transfer fees. Probably also verboten in NY due to 10 round magazine capacity, but I haven't followed that law since it passed, so perhaps a New Yorker can chime in.

1) Depends entirely on where you live. The laws on gun ownership vary greatly by state. 2) It shoots 22 long rifle ("22LR"), which is the most commonly type of ammo used for recreational shooting and small game hunting.
Recommend you go to a local gun store/club/shooting range that offers instruction. Get some of the basics down before deciding to buy.

Mixed. Early models had some problems, but S&W seems to make them well enough now, and they are well regarded by some.
There are several very popular competing models, particularly from Ruger, that make the S&W an "also ran" in it's category. But it's still a good recreational pistol.
Thanks guys, for the humor and for the sincere replies. I do have experience with guns, just not with this particular model. And as a recent transplant, I am not familiar with the gun laws in this country. Back where I am from, one does not require a license to own and operate a .22 handgun as long as it is used on private property or designated areas including ranges. Unloaded carry is permissible. Age 25+
.22 and .177 BB guns or handguns obviously do not require a license, and may be operated by anyone over the age of 14 without supervision.

@serenity22 -- As you may be discovering, laws vary greatly by state in the US. Even generic terms like "license" and "permit" will vary. Respectfully suggest you do some online research, and/or get basics from a reputable/friendly shop in your area. Best regards.
